21 Aug – Since last April, it has been revealed by "Bill & Ted" lead star Keanu Reeves an upcoming sequel to "Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey" in 1991 may revolve around time travel once more, but now it has been confirmed that the forthcoming third instalment will centre around the title characters trying to write the song that saves the world, according to Movie Web.
"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."
Reeves goes on to hint about the possibility of multiple timelines, "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."
To better understand the 48-year-old actor's musings, note that the "Bill & Ted" franchise features two metal head slackers, Bill S. Preston Esq. (Alex Winter) and Ted Theodore Logan (Keanu Reeves), who travel through time. In the original, "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" in 1989, the duo travel back in time to meet historical figures and learn about key historical events in order to complete their history report while in the second sees the duo being killed by robot doubles and their attempts to get back from the afterlife by challenging the Grim Reaper to a series of games.
In addition, "Galaxy Quest" and "Red 2" director Dean Parisot has signed on to direct, which puts the anticipated comedy sequel one step closer to being green lighted.
