‘Bill and Ted 3’ To Start Filming The End Of 2016 Says Alex Winter

- Advertisement -

Alex Winter’s Kickstarter campaign for Who the F#$% is Frank Zappa? is in its final days. The campaign has reached its $500,000 goal, but now Winter is pushing to reach a million to help archive Zappa’s vault. You can even purchase the Zappa family home as a perk.

While promoting the documentary project Winter spoke to Simon Thompson of Forbes about the status of Bill and Ted 3.

“We’ve been working on it for, like six years. We’re knee-deep in the script, it’s been written by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon who wrote the first two, they are fantastic writers, and the script is great. We have a script, we have a director, we have a studio – we’re just trying to nail down a start date,” said Winter to Forbes.

Winter also commented that the production for Bill and Ted 3 will likely start the end of this year, if not, then early 2017.

And just so you know Keanu Reeves is also involved in the project.

“How the **** would we make it if he wasn’t on board? People always ask if Keanu’s doing it and I’m like, ‘No, I’m making a Bill movie.’ Of course, he’s in it. I can’t make a Bill & Ted movie without Keanu,” said Winter to Forbes.

Winter sounds more optimistic than Reeves. Last month Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan was singing a different tune to IGN.

“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.

Box Office Report:
