Alex Winter: 'Bill & Ted 3' Will Be Funny Follow-Up On 40-Somethings

Actor and director Alex Winter shared some of the scoop on “Bill & Ted 3,” offering what Yahoo called a "whole heap of bodacious new details."

Winter and Keanu Reeves are back, 23 years after “Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey,” and fans are frothing to find out what they’ve been up to.

“[Bill & Ted] will be 40-something and it’s all about Bill and Ted grown up, or not grown up,” Winter told Yahoo. “It’s really sweet and really f—ing funny. But it’s a 'Bill & Ted' movie, that’s what it is. It’s for the fans of Bill & Ted. It fits very neatly in the [series]. It’s not going to feel like a reboot. The conceit is really funny: What if you’re middle-aged, haven’t really grown up and you’re supposed to have saved the world and maybe, just maybe, you kinda haven’t?”

Winter said the movie would answer the burning questions about what’s happened to Bill and Ted over the years.

“They’re supposed to have done all this stuff, they weren’t the brightest bulbs on the tree, what happened 20 years later? To answer that question in a comedic way felt rich with possibility,” he told Yahoo.

Despite his clear excitement for the third movie, Winter said it’s a shame word got out so soon about it.

“The thing we had going against us is that word got out,” he explains. “That was kind of a bummer. It just takes a long time to put a movie together. Now we’re having to build this thing in public, which is fine. I just feel bad [the fans] have to get dragged through this long, boring, protracted process.”

ComicBook.com offered a possible explanation for how long "Bill & Ted 3" will take: “With the collapse of Orion Pictures, the film's rights situation is always tricky to navigate — as is finding funding for a sci-fi-flavored sequel to a 20-year-old franchise that grossed a combined $80 million over two movies at the domestic box office.”
