‘Bill and Ted 3’ Is Closer To A Reality, But Not Actually

Chris Tilly the Entertainment Editor for IGN has been keeping tabs on a potential ‘Bill and Ted’ third adventure, and the editor checked in with Keanu Reeves for the most recent update.

“We’re closer, and we’re not closer. We’re expecting another draft, and hopefully, we’ll get closer. We’re just trying to get the script together. We’re trying to get the story right. We’re working with this studio, so we have a little bit of support, in a sense of like if the material comes through we’ll try and make this picture. We’re really just still trying to get the story right,” said Reeves.

At what point do you let it go? Reeves and Alex Winter are both in their fifties. Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure came out in 1989, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey created a franchise in 1991. Here we are 25 years later; the cards are stacked against Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan and Bill S. Preston making a successful comeback. Plus, who would cast to replace George Carlin?!

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989)
Budget: $10,000,000 (estimated)
Gross: $40,485,039 (USA)

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991)
Budget: $20,000,000 (estimated)
Gross: $38,037,513 (USA)

Both films turned a profit, so expect to see the “Wyld Stallyns” ride again!
