Keanu Reeves’ career is an interesting one. He always seems to be alternating between fantastic roles and horrible ones. Even in recent years, with the amazing John Wick under his belt, he still manages to show up in questionable films, like the 2015 film Knock Knock.

We’re honestly not sure where this next bit of news falls, but it very much has the potential to fall in either category. While at New York Comic-Con promoting his upcoming film Replicas, Reeves dropped word that they’re still working on a Bill & Ted 3.

“There’s a script out there. It’s called Bill & Ted Face the Music. We’re just trying to get it made. Show business is tough. It’s a cautionary tale.”

So what’s it about? It’s honestly not a bad premise. It follows Bill and Ted (duh), who are supposed to have saved the world by writing a song, but time has passed, and they haven’t done it. They’re married, have kids, and full lives to live.

“The future comes and says you’ve got to write the song, and so begins facing the music. One day, hopefully before I’m 60.”

Sounds like a fittingly middle-aged tale about never actually setting out to accomplish goals made in our youth. It’d be easy to make a more typical, silly comedy like the others (not unlike what Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels did in the recent Dumb and Dumber To), so it’s nice to hear that they actually made a premise that could have something to say.

What do you think of the idea behind Bill & Ted Face the Music? Let us know down below!

    I would like to see Bill and Ted experience interdimentional travel. Ted can run into a room filled with Keanu Reeves’ from all his movies and they all say whoa at the same time.

      It’s still a possibility. Maybe someone who wants to see them fail delivers a smart phone from the future that can open interdimensional portals. They figure they will just see what other Bill and Ted wrote and copy that. But little do they know that opening up the possibilities can alter their destiny. Now they have to fight for what they had already taken for granted.

    Alex Winter directed a short with Keanu doing narration….. they want to do it as friends, so let them, Just make it dorky fun mess that makes us feel like 8 years olds, like the last Pee Wee film.

    They better hurry up, Reeves does a few more Wicks and it’ll be Bill & Ted’s in Traction…
