[Spoilers] Keanu Reeves has let the world in on the storyline behind the mooted and stalled third installment of the Bill & Ted franchise.
Speaking to GQ he said: "We have a nice story. We’ll see if anyone else wants to make it."
"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. So everybody is kind of like: 'Where is the song?'"
"The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock," he continues. "And we go on this expedition, go into the future to find out if we wrote the song, and 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. In one version we’re in jail; in another we’re at some kind of highway motel and they hate us."
Both Keanu and Alex Winter are on board and original writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon have worked up the new script.
According to Vulture, director Dean Parisot has now become attached to the project. Parisot's previous movies include sci-fi spoof Galaxy Quest and Jim Carrey comedy Fun With Dick And Jane.
