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.
“I have [no updates],” he confided. “If I say the words ’Bill’, ’Ted’ and ’And’ in a sentence, it gets turned into like a massive Twitter explosion. So I try to watch myself. But we’re working on a new movie, we’ll see what happens.”
We got a little bit more on the movie’s development during a Spreecast with Alex Winter this morning, right here on VH1. In a conversation with our own Liz Black, he admitted “It’s great in that there’s so much interest, and we’re working on a new script. If the creative gets to a place where we’re all happy, then we’ll make it.”
