“Bill and Ted” star Alex Winter says writers Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson have come up with some ideas for a fourth movie in the beloved time-traveling franchise.

The franchise began in with 1989’s “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” and most recently delivered 2020’s third installment “Bill and Ted Face the Music”. All followed a pair of good-natured if somewhat dim wannabe rock stars who are key to the future of humanity.

Winter, who plays Bill S. Preston Esq. in the three films to date, appeared on The Sarah O’Connell Show (via ComicBook.com) recently where he indicated Solomon and Matheson are currently working on an idea they’ve all sparked to.

Winter says the movie will only happen if he, the writers and Keanu Reeves are all on board with the script:

“We’re tinkering with a fourth movie idea that all of us like, and the guys are going to write, so we’ll see. It takes us time to get these things going, and we never want to do them unless they’re great.

They [Solomon, Matheson, co-star Keanu Reeves] feel the same way, it has to be right. We love [the Bill & Ted movies] because they’re oddball, and they’re not typical mainstream films. They’ve never been cash-grab movies; nobody has gotten rich off the Bill and Ted series. We really do make them sincerely from a place of love and interest.

There’s a really good idea that the writers came up with for a fourth that’s kind of obvious. I don’t want to give it away — I can’t give it away because I would be drawn and quartered — but it is a really good idea, an obvious idea. It will get written, and we’ll see if we can actually get it made.”

Winter revealed the comments whilst out promoting the horror comedy “Destroy All Neighbors” available now in cinemas or on Shudder.
