<i>Bill &amp; Ted 3</i> Script Nearly Finished, Keanu Reeves Contends

A script for the fabled third Bill & Ted is nearing completion. So says "Ted" Theodore Logan himself, Keanu Reeves, who first raised the possibility of a sequel more than a year ago.

"I believe the writers are six weeks away from a draft," he told MTV News. "No pressure, guys!"

The writers, last we checked, are Christopher Matheson and Ed Solomon, who penned 1989's Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and 1991's Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, about two dense metalhead slackers (played by Reeves and Alex Winter), who travel through time and, in the sequel, challenge the Grim Reaper.

As unlikely as it may seem now, the sci-fi comedies spawned short-lived two television series -- animated and live-action -- comic books, video games and even a musical, and helped to launch Reeves into stardom.

Reeves revealed that the third film, which will reunite him with Winter, will have a direct connection to Bogus Journey, in which the duo's band Wyld Stallyns were to have made world-changing music.

"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," he said. "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."
