Last April, Keanu Reeves revealed that the forthcoming comedy sequel Bill & Ted 3 will revolve around the title characters trying to write the song that saves the world. Today, a new interview with the actor confirms this plot point, and expands on the time travel aspect that he hinted at last year.
"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."
We reported last week that Dean Parisot signed on to direct, indicating this anticipated comedy sequel may be close to getting the green light.
