Alex Winter Confirms "Bill and Ted 3" is Moving Forward
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure

Keanu Reeve and Winter will play 40-year-old grownups in the next installment.

Alex Winter, who played Bill in the comedy hit "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" says they're gearing up to make a third film for the franchise.

The actors Winter and Keanu Reeve who will reprise their role as 40-something grownups in the upcoming film spooke about how it would be a true sequel to the series.

"The conceit is really funny: What if you're middle-aged, haven't really grown up and you're supposed to have saved the world and maybe, just maybe, you kinda haven't? ... [It's] answering the question: 'What happened to these guys?' They're supposed to have done all this stuff, they weren't the brightest bulbs on the tree, what happened 20 years later? To answer that question in a comedic way felt rich with possibility."

Winters also went on to say that the project has been in the works for a while, but they had to get the studio and other actors together to finalize the project before it could move forward.

"Me and Keanu [Reeves] and [original writers] Chris [Matheson] and Ed [Solomon] are all very close and have remained close over the years ... I guess about four years ago we had an idea together that we thought was pretty great. I think it was because so much time had gone by that it was great ... Then we put a producer together and got a director [Galaxy Quest helmer Dean Parisot]. We've been working on drafts for the last couple of years. The script's been finished for a while, but comedy is so specific."

Winters added he and the film's producers are currently in the process of reworking the script one last time before pre-production formally goes forward on the next installment.
