‘Bill & Ted 3’ Is Ready But Needs Financing Says Keanu Reeves

Back in November, Alex Winter confirmed that Bill & Ted 3 is still in the works, despite Keanu Reeves' comments from September that a "darkness" has fallen upon the highly-anticipated sequel. During an interview with Today for 47 Ronin, Keanu Reeves confirmed that they are still looking for financing, while revealing that the characters evolve in the sequel.

"Yeah, there's a story; there's a script. We're trying to get the dough together to make this crazy story. I can talk about it, but I shouldn't talk about it. They do indeed evolve."

When asked about playing Ted Logan at the age of 50, which he turns next year, the actor had this to say.

"I'm open to the idea of that. I think it's pretty surreal, playing Bill & Ted at 50. But we have a good story in that. You can see the life and joy in those characters, and I think the world can always use some life and joy."

Dean Parisot (Red 2) is attached to direct, from a script by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson. Do you think this long-awaited sequel will ever see the light of day? Chime in with your thoughts below.

In a separate interview with BBC News, Keanu Reeves confirmed that he is not involved in the Point Break remake.

"Absolutely not. It's not my place. If they can find a way to do it that works out good, then God bless them."

The remake was announced back in September 2011, with Kurt Wimmer writing the screenplay. Alcon's Andrew A. Kosove, who is producing with Broderick Johnson, revealed in December 2011 that a director would be announced soon, although that was the last we heard about the remake. The producer also said that surfing would be prominently featured in the new version, along with other extreme sports. Keanu Reeves starred in the original film as FBI agent Johnny Utah, who infiltrates the surfing community to find a group of bank robbers.

Bill & Ted 3 is in development .
