It’s been a while since we heard anything about that long-rumored Bill and Ted sequel, but original co-star Alex Winter can explain why.

The rumor mill has been churning that the third installment could be delayed, but Winter promises that’s not the case. Basically, he reiterated that it takes a few years to bring a movie to life. It sounds like everyone is still excited about it; they're just trying to get all the ducks in a row.

The latest? They’re doing a rewrite, so hold your horses:

“Well the funny thing is there really isn’t a hold up. Nothing held it up other than it got leaked really early in the process, so these things take a s--tload of time to get bobbed around and we are really just in the process. It’s really mundane to report the day-to-day process of trying to get a movie made. 'Right now they’re doing a rewrite?' You know? That’s my news, ‘they are doing a rewrite.’

That will take a while and then we will look at it and that might need another rewrite and that will be my next bit of news. So it’s just like… The short answer is it got leaked way too early. It got leaked just as we started, me and Keanu and Chris and Ed, the two writers just started to put it together. Then you’ve got the whole genesis of putting it together in front of you still, which is where we are at now.”

So don’t crank up your time-traveling payphone just yet, but take solace in knowing the Wyld Stallyns are coming.
