Keanu Reeves has been discussing the most unlikeliest of sequels, Bill & Ted 3, a year after serious talk of the sequel began.
Reeves is currently promoting his documentary, Side By Side, which investigates the future of film and digitally-shot movies, but has inevitably been fielding questions around his first franchise.
And given the movie has yet to receive a green-light, Reeves was unsurprisingly happy to talk up the plot, which will see an ageing Bill and Ted freaking out about finally writing the greatest rock song of all time.
"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," Reeves told GQ Magazine.
"So everybody is kind of like: “Where is the song?” The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock. 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."
Director Dean Parisot, responsible for the fantastic Galaxy Quest, is pegged to direct after he works on the RED sequel, but MGM have yet to agree to finance the picture or sell the rights, so watch this space…
