Last week we reported the inexplicable news that another Bill and Ted movie is slowly becoming a reality. And in a recent interview with GQ, Keanu Reeves revealed what the plot of the movie will be:
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.
On paper this certainly sounds like the time traveling franchise that we sort of liked back in the late '80s and early '90s. But it's been 23 years since the original, and we're not quite certain how audiences will react to two metalhead slackers spouting phrases like "bummer" and "radical" anymore. Does this sound like something that Hollywood needs to make, or is the whole industry just running out of ideas. Let us know.
