It’s been some time since we’ve last gotten an update on a possible return of Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter to the big screen in their iconic roles of Bill and Ted. Last spring Alex Winter stated that he had read a first draft script by Bill & Ted creators writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon for the project and liked it but that the film wasn’t a “done deal” yet. But for the ten months since then things have been silent.
Silent until Winter tweeted a little something about the project over the weekend, that seems to indicate that there has been a small bit of progress. In response to a question from Bill & Ted co-star George Carlin’s daughter Kelly, Winter stated –
