That long-threatened Bill & Ted sequel is happening (really!), and now star Keanu Reeves has spilled exactly what the world-saving rock stars will be up to in the modern age.
In an interview with GQ, Reeves explained how the third installment in the franchise will retain the famed time-travel elements as the guys deal with the pressure of having to write the famed song that will change the world. So the Wyld Stallyns take to their time-traveling phone booth in a quest for answers:
"One of the plot points is that these two people have been crushed by the responsibility of having to write the greatest song ever written and to change the world. And they haven't done it. So everybody is kind of like: "Where is the song?" The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock. And we go on this expedition, go into the future to find out if we wrote the song, and one future "us" refuses to tell us, and another future "us" blames us for their lives because we didn't write the song, so they're living this terrible life. In one version we're in jail; in another we're at some kind of highway motel and they hate us."That's actually a pretty good angle to approach the series all these years later, and it could be interesting to see the other side—namely, what happens when you know you're supposed to do something great, but you don't know how?
What do you think? Is this the Bill & Ted sequel you've always wanted?
