MTV Movies Blog recently spoke with Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure star Alex Winter, who confirmed that Bill & Ted 3 is actually happening. Here's an excerpt from the site's article:

"We kicked around the idea over the years and had always thought if we could make something that was as kind of genuine in spirit as the originals and without falling prey to kind of retro cynicism or something that was unnecessary, it would be worth doing. Now the cat's out of the bag, and the truth is that, yeah, we have finally hit upon an idea that we think is pretty great. We've been working on it for the past couple of years, honing that idea and getting it into shape. [Screenwriters Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon] are working on it now. The bottom line is that we still all feel like we need to sit down and look at a script and see if it's everything that it can be before we set about doing anything with it."


We reported earlier this week that Keanu Reeves jokingly wants Werner Herzog to direct Bill & Ted 3. While Winter didn't comment on Werner Herzog's involvement, he did talk a bit about where they would like to take the story:

"The essence of what we've always wanted to do is to make a 'Bill & Ted' movie. We don't want to make a cynical 'here's Bill and Ted - you guys are our kids, now YOU guys go be Bill and Ted and the franchise can live for another 25 years!' It's not that. It's a straight up, what's the funniest and most surprising take on where Bill and Ted would be right now if we stopped back in on them? That's what we're doing."


Alex Winter also mentioned that it wasn't clear at this time how the movie would deal with the loss of the late George Carlin.

    Where do you get the 'Officially in development' part from? Both of those interviews are quite clear about the fact that no studio is attached.
    They both basically just state that the 3 of them would like to do another movie, and one of them has a story idea. They've just been kicking the notion around at their house.
    Don't report prematurely.
