Bill and Ted’s next adventure has them traveling to the futurePosted 3:53 pm on Monday, August 13th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
The third Bill and Ted movie looks to be going ahead full speed with the announcement of director Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) last week. With the third movie, where can the San Dimas duo possibly go after traveling to the past and escaping Hell? The future of course.
Keanu Reeves gives GQ the lowdown for Bill and Ted’s next adventure.
“One of the plot points is that these two people have been crushed by the responsibility of having to write the greatest song ever written and to change the world, and they haven’t done it,” Reeves recently told GQ. “So everybody is kind of like: ‘Where is the song?’ The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock.” In order to try and fulfill their destiny and become the greatest musicians of all time as the rock band Wyld Stallyns, Bill and Ted travel into the future to find out what happens and run into multiple possible future versions of themselves. “One future ‘us’ refuses to tell us, and another future ‘us’ blames us for their lives because we didn’t write the song, so they’re living this terrible life,” the star said. “In one version we’re in jail; in another we’re at some kind of highway motel and they hate us.”
I can dig it. So far each movie, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, has had the duo prevailing over odds that are trying to prevent them from their path of creating that special world-changing song. Alex Winter is set to return as Bill and Bill and Ted creators, Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, are writing the script.
