Keanu Reeves fighting to get ‘crazy’ Bill & Ted 3 going

Despite some issues in raising the finance for it, Keanu Reeves says he’s still very taken by the idea of doing the long-gestating “Bill & Ted 3″.

“I’m open to the idea of that,” Reeves, out promoting his new film “47 Ronin”, said on the Today show (via USA Today) on Monday. “I think it’s pretty surreal, playing ‘Bill & Ted’ at 50. But we have a good story in that. You can see the life and joy in those characters, and I think the world can always use some life and joy.”

Reeves would reunite with Alex Winter for the third film; both have signed off on a script.

“Yeah, there’s a story; there’s a script,” he said. “We’re trying to get the dough together to make this crazy story.”

As for what the script is about, Reeves wouldn’t say much… only that it’s “interesting” and it does indeed see the characters “evolve”.

Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon wrote the script.
