MTV News has reported that a draft script for a new sequel to the 1989 cult classic Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, is 6 weeks away from completion, according to an interview with Keanu Reeves. The writers of the original screenplay are tackling the script, and it sounds like Reeves is spearheading the project.
With Alex Winters (Bill), and Keanu Reeves (Ted), both in their late 40's, the new script purportedly revolves around a plot where Bill & Ted, as grown adults, have not accomplished the earth saving deeds that were prophesied about them.
With the audience of the original Bill & Ted over 20 years older now, many who have cast childhood dreams by the wayside, there is a lot of opportunity to build a story that will resonate with them - just as the original Bill & Ted spoke to the teenaged slacker in the same generation.
So, cheer up Keanu, I'm looking forward to hearing more about the project.
Party on dudes!
