Here’s excellent news for Bill and Ted fans: The script for a threequel is finally finished.
Alex Winter — who played Bill S. Preston Esq. in the first two movies, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, opposite Keanu Reeves’ “Ted” Theodore Logan — tweeted the news Sunday.
“Just got the script. And now to read…,” Winter wrote.
The first Bill & Ted flick hit screens in 1989 and centered on two teen slackers who travel through time in a phone booth to ace their high school history project. The sequel was released in 1991.
In a recent interview, Reeves said the third installment’s story arc might fit into the overall franchise.
“When we last got together, part of it was that Bill and Ted were supposed to have written the song that saved the world, and it hasn’t happened,” he said. “So they’ve now become kind of possessed by trying to do that. Then there’s an element of time and they have to go back.”
Winter first confirmed another movie was in the works last year.
“We have finally hit upon an idea that we think is pretty great,” he said at the time.
