In a recent interview with GQ actor Keanu Reeves divulged some details about the long awaited third installment of the totally tubular Bill & Ted saga. And the news from the 47-year-old is, in a word, excellent.
"We have a nice story," the star tells the magazine of the upcoming exploits of rockin' time travelers Theodore (Reeves) and Bill S. Preston, Esq. (Alex Winter). "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."
Okay, that sounds all kinds of awesome and kind of lessens the sting of a Rufus-less Bill & Ted movie. Kind of.
