Actor Keanu Reeves says that plans for a third “Bill and Ted” movie have stalled, but the reasons for that aren’t quite clear. Speaking with MTV, Reeves’ explanation is downright confusing:
“It’s a long story. There’s lots of subterfuge and conspiracy theories. There’s a whole thing…I might have to do one of those independent press, conspiracy, other-name kind of [statements] explaining why it hasn’t happened yet, because it’s pretty dark out there. DeNomolos is everywhere!
There’s all sorts of stuff, and it just can’t…There’s darkness out there that’s keeping it from happening. It’s not winning right now. It’s that part of the story where it’s looking grim. It’s the dark period! It’s the Apocalypse Now of pre-production. Its Heaven’s Gate.
That’s the part of the conspiracy. It goes to a whole other universe. Its like part of an M field. It’s a B&T field.”
This is surprising news considering Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson’s script for the project was liked, and both Reeves and co-star Alex Winter were keen to get going on the film.
