SXSW 2013: Downloaded Director Alex Winter Gives Us The Scoop On The Upcoming Bill & Ted Sequel

VH1′s Emmy winning Rock Docs series is back with Downloaded, a brand new documentary about the rise and eventual fall of Napster. The movie was directed by Alex Winter, who is (perhaps) best known for his role as Bill S. Preston Esq. in the two Bill & Ted movies. On the red carpet at the world premiere of his newest film last night, we stopped him on the red carpet and asked him about the rumors that he’s going to be re-teaming with Keanu Reeves for a new installment of the universally beloved movie franchise.

Keanu Reeves Reveals Info About Bill And Ted: Part Three

There might be no other film from our youth that has had such an impact on our lives, our knowledge of history, or our use of slang than Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure. We still can’t eat a big bowl of ice cream without chanting “Zig-gy Pig-gy!” and we often find ourselves referring to Sigmund Freud as The Frood Dude. Last year, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter both teased us with the idea that there could be a third Bill and Ted film in the works, and this week, Keanu goes even further, confirming that the script is almost finished.

The the interview above, Reeves discusses the next Bill and Ted movie, saying “I believe the writers are six weeks away from a draft. … When we last got together, part of it was that Bill and Ted were supposed to have written the song that saved the world, and it hasn’t happened, so they’ve now become kind of possessed by trying to do that. Then there’s an element of time and they have to go back.” We’d be interested to see these guys revive their old characters, but it just won’t be the same without Rufus, played by George Carlin. Hopefully they don’t revive him with CGI holograms or something, that would not be so excellent.
