Alex Winter Gives a Bill and Ted Part 3 Update

bill and ted 3

Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves have been close dudes since starring in the beloved 1989 comedy Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and its 1991 sequel, Bogus Journey. As with the long-gestating Ghostbusters reboot(s) that finally got the greenlight, reports about a Bill & Ted part 3 have been swirling for years. Winter, who retired from acting in 1993 after the sci-fi comedy Freaked, has an active film making career — his last movie was the well-received Napster doc Downloaded — which means that he every time he releases a new doc, he’s inevitably drilled about the fate of the franchise.

As for the latest update? “We’re really close. We’re just about there,” Winter said, before cautioning: “In Hollywood parlance, [that] means we’ll either be shooting soon, or it’s never going to happen.”

Asked if he’s sick of the obligatory Bill & Ted questions every time he does press, he responded:

 “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 Keanu 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.”

Winter said that even though he no longer pursues acting jobs, he would of course reprise the role Wyld Stallyn Bill S. Preston, Esquire.

Here is the trailer for Winter's latest documentary Deep Web:
