It's been 19 years since Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter last played the roles of the lovable-but-clueless best friends in the sequel to Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. Now Reeves, 46, says he wants to re-team with Winter and original writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon to come up with a new script and make one more installment of the cult classic.
"We're trying," Reeves told MTV News. "Alex and I are still friends and we're talking, and we're talking to 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. We'll see what they do. I'm meeting people now - they've shown the film to their kids. We just seek to entertain."
The Matrix actor added that they would only work on the picture "if it's a film that can stand up on its own," before joking that he wanted German art house director Werner Herzog to take on the stoner flick.
Impersonating Herzog, Reeves said: "I was just pushed by the idea of this innocence being confronted by the nihilism of the world. And I thought that these two clowns could push our perspective of reality and truth to the forefront of meaning and knowledge."
