Sep 20 2010Ted Still Talking About Making Another 'Bill & Ted' Movie

Continuing his tradition of sort-of-jokingly claiming Bill & Ted 3 might happen when MTV asks him about the made-up project, Keanu Reeves has again provided MTV a half tongue-in-cheek, half kind of serious response to the question of if we're going to get a dubious sequel to his telephone-booth-time-travel franchise. This time he added an impression of Werner Herzog, y'all:

"We're trying," said Reeves. "Alex and I are still friends and we're talking, and we're talking to [writers] Chris and Ed. They're going to try and see if they can write something. To me, I'd love to play the role. I'd love to work with Alex and Chris and Ed again."

[Reeves] already has plenty of ideas, from a 3-D black-and-white sequel to a multi-director extravaganza involving Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and Werner Herzog.

"I was just pushed by the idea of this innocence being confronted by the nihilism of the world," Reeves joked in his best Herzog impression. "And I thought that these two clowns could push our perspective of reality and truth to the forefront of meaning and knowledge."

Video of the impression that will probably get Keanu on SNL next season under the cut. Bonus: includes Keanu's humble admission he's almost 50. Yeah, yeah, we get it; you're aging supernaturally well.

I still don't think this is ever going to happen, but if it somehow does, please don't be about Bill Jr. and Ted Jr. and Napoleon Jr. Can I ask that much, Belated Sequel Gods?

"Yeah, yeah, we get it; you're aging supernaturally well."

That's what happens when you beat Death at Battleship AND Twister.

The oldness will only add to the awesome if played right.

he looks 25. I guess he really is The One.

Not without Carlin.

RUFUS!!!!! rufus should come back as a dog.

That's right, George Carlin was awesome as Rufus.

Wow, that MTV interviewer really sucks, he kept interrupting and talking over Reeves. I hope when they turned the camera off Keanu gave him a Neo kick to the side of the head.

They can use the telephone booth to figure out why rock and roll pretty much died after the 90's and all these pop and emo fags took over. On the plus side, all the girls are whores now. I wish I could use the telephone booth to bring past me to the future where you can easily bang not only all your female classmates but also your hot female teachers.

Damnit, that was funny and surprising, and, and, why can't he do shit like that when the cameras are roll...?


Oh


right.

I could see 50yo Bill and Ted as something like Dude Lebowski and the orthodontist from Thumbsucker.

Maybe their magic phone booth can land in the Smithsonian and they can have their adventure with Ben Stiller and Gen'l Custer and that whole gang. Bill & Ted was a prequel to Night at the Museum, right?
