‘Bill & Ted 3’ will have lots of versions of Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter

It seems that the third movie in the ‘Bill and Ted’ series has found some forward momentum and it would appear that the movie could be taking a leaf from the Michael Keaton film ‘Multiplicity’ insofar as we’ll be seeing multiple versions of Bill and Ted in the movie.

While speaking to Yahoo! Movies UK film maker Alex Winter, who played Bill S Preston in the first two movies revealed that we’ll see more than one Bill and Ted in the film, which picks the two unlikely heroes up in their 40s.

“It’s really sweet and really f**king funny,” he said. “It fits very neatly in the [series]. It’s not going to feel like a reboot. 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?”

“There’s many versions of ourselves in this movie. [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.”

Winter added that original screenwriters Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, Keanu Reeves and himself have been the creative driving force behind the new movie, which will be directed by ‘Galaxy Quest‘s’ Dean Parisot.
“It took time to construct the idea, it took Chris and Ed time to build the first draft… We’ve been working on drafts for the last couple of years,” he said.

“The script’s been finished for a while, but comedy is so specific. We’re in that world where producers are on, financiers are on and we’re just working and reworking the script.”
