Bill & Ted Strike Back!

I'd read a rumor on a gossip site last week, but now MTV's movie blog is confirming: Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are working on a Bill & Ted 3! Said Winter:
"The essence of what we've always wanted to do is to make a 'Bill & Ted' movie," he said. "We don't want to make a cynical 'here's Bill and Ted — you guys are our kids, now YOU guys go be Bill and Ted and the franchise can live for another 25 years!' It's not that. It's a straight up, what's the funniest and most surprising take on where Bill and Ted would be right now if we stopped back in on them? That's what we're doing."
Here's why I kind of love this: Keanu Reeves is a huge big gajillionaire star. After The Matrix, he could totally retire. And really, he hasn't done tons since then. I love that he wants to do this with his old pal, just for the sheer hell of it. I think mid-life crisis Wyld Stallyns rule.

Though, I agree with Winters, it's not the same without George Carlin.

Be excellent to each other, dudes.
