If you were a fan of Bill & Ted in the late ’80s and early ’90s, then you probably recall a time when Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves’ rad, time-traveling high school party dudes were pretty much everywhere. They had their own animated TV spinoff, a Halloween special and even a breakfast cereal (“the most triumphant part of this balanced breakfast!”). What you might not remember is their incredibly short-lived live-action TV series — and who could blame you?
Bill & Ted 3 has been in the works for years, and while that prolonged development time isn’t any worse than, say, waiting for a new Pixar sequel, keep in mind that it’s been 25 years since Bill S. Preston, Esquire and Ted Theodore Logan last graced the big screen. Over the last few years, both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter have assured fans that they’re very much committed to making the sequel once they’ve perfected the script and budget (and cleared their respective schedules). The latest update comes from Winter, who says the duo could reunite later this year or early next year to film Bill & Ted 3 — which definitely sounds like progress, but don’t start holding your breath just yet.
'Bill & Ted 3' may never get the phone booth off the ground, but that doesn't mean iconic franchise star Alex Winter is lacking for work. The actor/writer has officially joined the ranks of such AMC producers as Matthew Weiner and Vince Gilligan, selling drama "Rights of Bill" to the cable network. No, it isn't a reference to his air-headed time-travelling character, his excellent adventures or bogus journey, but rather an outlaw Wisconsin sheriff. Would you tune in for 'Rights of Bill?'
Just last week we brought you the most excellent news that 'Bill & Ted 3' is definitely moving forward with original actors Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, and 'Galaxy Quest' director Dean Parisot. But just what will this movie be about?
And somewhere 'Ghostbusters 3' cries itself to sleep because 'Bill & Ted' were able to get their act together. Wyld Stallyns forever! 'Bill & Ted 3' is moving forward with original duo Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, with the help of director Dean Parisot.
