Los Angeles - Keanu Reeves has teased Bill & Ted 3 is "getting closer".
The 51-year-old actor starred as Theodore 'Ted' Logan in the previous two iconic comedy films, 1989's Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and 1991's Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, and he is keen to reprise the role that catapulted him to fame.
Speaking in an interview with IGN, he said: "We're closer and we're not closer. We're trying to get the story right. We're working with this studio so we have a little bit of support, in a sense of like if the material comes through we'll try and make this picture."
The movies - which spurned famous lines like such as "party on dudes" and "most excellent" - were a global box office success and spawned video games, a comic book, a short-lived TV series and a breakfast cereal.
Last year, Alex Winter - who played Bill S. Preston Esq. in the original movies - revealed that Keanu had been re-watching the old films for the last several months and had told him he wanted to revisit the time-travelling franchise.
Alex, 50, said: "He started watching the earliest cuts of this movie a year ago, and was just super into it.
"It's really funny, because I asked him (if he wanted to do a sequel) and I could tell he was waiting for me to ask. Because he was like, 'Yeah, duh.'
