LAST WEEK, we learned that the GALAXY QUEST director Dean Parisot had been attached to a third BILL & TED script, authored by returning writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. Said script would return Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter to the roles they originated in Stephen Herek's BILL AND TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE back in 1989, which they reprised in BILL & TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY two years later.
Now, in an interview with GQ (GQ as in Gentleman's Quarterly, not Galaxy Quest), Keanu Reeves hints at the project's storyline.
We have a nice story. We'll see if anyone else wants to make it.
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. 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.
You can find more HERE at GQ. Personally, I really hope they make this film. Between my insatiable desire for more BILL & TED movies with Reeves and Winter, and my vast respect for director Parisot's work on GALAXY QUEST, this project is very high on my "most ant to see" list.
