Alex Winter on Bill & Ted 3
Bill & Ted 3 will happen, but there's no rush, says Alex Winter...
There's an interesting new interview with Alex Winter that's popped up over at Empire, where he talks about the Napster documentary that he's been working on. It's well wroth a read.
As the interview goes on, Winter is asked about the current state of Bill & Ted 3, and the signs - even though there's been no news for a while (outside of Keanu Reeves talking about dark forces stopping the film happening) - still look positive.
"We have a script and I believe we will get it made. But we're in that zone of putting it together, which maybe Dumb And Dumber To was in for a while", Winter said.
Revealing that they're waiting for screenwriters Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon to find a gap in their schedule to get another draft penned, Winter said that "it's just the four of us: it's not like there's a big, cigar-chomping money guy interfering. There are people with money who are interested, but the ball is in our court as to how we want to organise it financially".
He added that "I hate to say this because it might tick off the fans, but it doesn't really matter if the movie happens now or in a couple of years, given what it's about and how it plays with what's happened to us".
Bottom line: it still sounds like this one is happening, but don't hold your breath for it just yet.
