If you’ve experienced sleepless nights with the sweet tunes of Wyld Stallyns trapped in your head, don’t worry: you’re not alone. Just like you, Keanu Reeves has heard the call of “Bill & Ted,” and he’s hoping to go for another round with the lovable losers.
When MTV News sat down with Reeves at the Toronto Film Festival last week, we put forth the possibility of a third “Bill & Ted” outing. Not only was Reeves open to the idea, but he suggested that co-star Alex Winter and writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon are also on board.
“We’re trying,” said Reeves. “Alex and I are still friends and we’re talking, and we’re talking to Chris and Ed. They’re going to try and see if they can write something. To me, I’d love to play the role. I’d love to work with Alex and Chris and Ed again.”
“We’ll see what they do. If it’s a film that can stand up on its own, and I’m meeting people now, they’ve shown the film to their kids,” he added. “We just seek to entertain, and if that could be something that could be worthwhile on its own…”
With Reeves clearly on board for another excellent adventure — or a bogus journey, as the case may be — it’s worth pondering what the third “Bill & Ted” could focus on. But the actor already has plenty of ideas, from a 3-D black-and-white sequel to a multi-director extravaganza involving Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and Werner Herzog.
“I was just pushed by the idea of this innocence being confronted by the nihilism of the world,” Reeves joked in his best Herzog impression. “And I thought that these two clowns could push our perspective of reality and truth to the forefront of meaning and knowledge.”
