Keanu Reeves on what's holding up Bill & Ted 3
There's a "darkness" that's stopping Bill & Ted 3 from happening, admits Keanu Reeves...
Work, if all had gone to plan, was supposed to have started on Bill & Ted 3 by now. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are both keen to return, whilst Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, RED 2) signed on to direct last year. Furthermore, the script to the movie is reportedly locked and in place too. So what's the hold up?
In a new interview with MTV, Keanu Reeves has admitted "it's a long story. There's lots of subterfuge and conspiracy theories". Confirming that the script is in place, he said "there's all sorts of stuff and it just can't... it's just... there's darkness out there that's keeping it from happening. It's not winning right now. It's that part of the story where it's looking grum. It's the dark period of the idea".
What the darkness actually is isn't something that Reeves expanded upon (there had been talk of more script work being done over the summer), but it can't help but shed some doubt on whether Bill & Ted 3 is actually going to happen. The signs don't look too positive, it seems.
