The 82nd Annual Academy Awards red carpet was a madhouse this evening, as it always is. MTV’s Josh Horowitz was there to deliver a live streaming account of the festivities, with interviews and category previews to take you into the big show. One of the familiar faces he chatted with was Keanu Reeves, who was on-hand to present Best Picture nominee “The Hurt Locker” for his “Point Break” director Kathryn Bigelow. Since he had Reeves’ ear, Josh asked if we might be seeing a new “Bill & Ted’s” follow-up at some point in the future. And it seems we might be!
It’s hard to tell if he’s serious or simply placating when he says this, but Reeves responded to Josh’s question with, “I’m trying, I’m trying.” This gave Josh pause. Could the “Point Break” star be serious? “Sure,” he said.
Really? Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves, together again?! He’s got to be joking. Right?
“I’m not,” Reeves said. “We’ll see.”
It’s still somewhat hard to read. So I put the question to you readers. Is Reeves shooting straight here or is he just trying to get into the theater? Do you want more from Bill and Ted? Sequel or reboot?
