Unlikely sequel in development

Keanu Reeves has realised he is a very limited actor. Instead of challenging himself, he is going back to his roots - stoner comedy. The star of The Matrix has announced that writers are around six weeks away from a draft of the script for "Bill and Ted 3", MTV News said yesterday.

He said Bill & Ted 3 was likely to build on previous storylines, saying, "When we last got together, part of it was that Bill and Ted were supposed to have written the song that saved the world, and it hasn't happened. So they've now become kind of possessed by trying to do that. Then there's an element of time and they have to go back," according to Mtv News.

"'Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure' in 1989 and the sequel 'Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey' in 1991 co-starred Reeves and Alex Winter as high school students traveling through time to piece together a history project. In the third movie, the characters are now in their mid-forties, something that Reeves described as 'pretty excellent'," they said.

Reeves has been criticised in the past for being a weak actor. He made his break into film with as Ted Logan in the Bill and Ted films. This was after having acted for a few years. But since that role, he has been said to deliver emotionally-dry performances.

The Matrix Trilogy was a strong point in his career but after that ended in 2003, he played a variety of roles in critically-panned films

Before working on 'Bill & Ted 3', Reeves will star in the action drama '47 Ronin'. This is a film about a band of samurai who set out to avenge the death of their master.
