Some most excellent news (thanks for the heads-up Movie Web) has been delivered by Bill S. Preston, Enquire (aka Alex Winter) via his Twitter account.

Seems that the long-mooted script for the third instalment of those heavy metal-obsessed time travelling world saviours, Bill & Ted, is now with Winter! Penned by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon (who wrote the previous films) there’s no date as yet for production, but both the actor/filmmaker (currently at work on a remake of 80’s horror favorite The Gate) and his co-star Keanu Reeves, are said to very much up for it.

Reeves is currently filming samurai epic 47 Ronin, so let’s hope that this script is good enough to ensure he keeps his slate clear and pre-production can begin soon.
