Via io9 comes the news that the script for Bill & Ted 3 is finished. Or at least that's what Alex Winter's telling people on Twitter, in between all his appointments of doing nothing (9 am-11:15 am), looking out the window and waiting for the mailman so he can see if there's anything in the mail for him today (11:15 am-4:35 pm), and doing whatever stupid chore he has to do today based on his stupid housemates' stupid chore wheel (4:35 pm-4:37 pm).

“@antmaurizio: Bill and Ted 3, less than 6 weeks away and counting? Movie is gonna kick some ass." > Just got the script. And now to read...

Y'know, if I was Alex Winter and I'd spent the better part of the last decade talking about/hoping for/praying to God about/blackmailing Keanu into appearing in a Bill and Ted sequel, I'd probably have read that script right off the bat, rather than tweeting about it, but hey, the guy's got priorities. Anyway, as much as I love the Wyld Stallyns—and believe you me, I do—and as much as I'd love a Bill & Ted's Geriatric Adventures—which believe you me, I would—this movie has about as much of a chance as happening as Ghostbusters 3. (Which isn't happening, BTW.) Keanu and Alex "There's the Mailman! I See the Mailman!" Winter are too old, the property's been dormant for far too long, George Carlin's dead (R.I.P., Rufus), and nobody ever talks about this, but Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey kind of blew. Sorry, my fellow children of the '80s and/or early '90s. At least we'll always have that fake Inception trailer.
