It’s the reboot we’d be willing to travel through time to see!
The third installment of the beloved Bill & Ted franchise is really close to happening, Bill Alex Winter confirmed earlier this week!
“We’re really close. We’re just about there,” he said while at SXSW. “In Hollywood parlance, [that] means we’ll either be shooting soon, or it’s never going to happen.”
When asked if he was sick of being asked about the franchise, the 49-year-old replied, “We’re trying to get the movie made, so how could we be sick of it? It’s really been us driving the whole thing, me and Ted Keanu [Reeves] and [writers] Chris [Matheson] and Ed [Solomon]. So we’re producing it and we’re actively trying to get it made. We’re not tired of it, but I think for our fans, we are eager to stop talking about and actually shoot the damn thing.”
It’s been a while since we last saw Bill and Ted — a whoppin’ 24 years since the sequel, ‘Bogus Journey’ — so we wanted to check in on the original stars.
And before you ask, no, there’s no time travel necessary. See where they are now!
