‘Bill & Ted’ to reunite for third film?

These two dudes are making a comeback!

In most excellent news, fans of “Bill & Ted” could be in for a highly-anticipated treat: a third film starring its original cast of Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter. Looks like the rumors are true, dudes!

Vulture reports there are plans in the works, for a second sequel which would follow Bill and Ted into their current lives since their last adventures together in “Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey” back in 1991. Think “Hot Tub Time-Machine,” only more bodacious. 

MGM Pictures owns the rights to “Bill & Ted,” but another studio could come on board as a co-financier.

It would be the first time Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter have appeared together on screen since 1991. What have these two dudes been up to since then? Reeves enjoyed plenty of success after his stint as Ted, going on to star in mega blockbusters like “Speed,” “The Matrix” and “Something’s Gotta Give.” He’s already slated for more work well into 2013 as “47 Ronin” and “Man of Tai Chi” are set to be released.

Winter, on the other hand, has not enjoyed as much success after playing Bill. In fact, he hasn’t worked in TV or film since 2009, according to IMBD, so it’s no surprise that he’s willing and ready for a “Bill & Ted” comeback.

Winter starred in the movie “Freaked” in 1993, but after, that things started to slow down for him. Some voice work in a series called “Saul of the Mole Men” and a few TV movies later, and Winter dropped off the map.

However, he’s been on board for the “Bill & Ted” follow up for quite some time, first commenting on the rumors back in March, telling MTV, “I think the reality is there probably will be another one.”
