Excellent or Bogus? Here's what is planned for 'Bill and Ted 3'

Life truly has been a bogus journey since the last sequel to Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. But thankfully Alex Winter, the writer/director who played Bill S. Preston Esq., is now providing details on the newest installment of the '80s classic.

According to Yahoo! Movies UK, both Winter and Keanu Reeves will return for the movie, some 23 years after the 1991's Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.

"[Bill & Ted] will be 40-something and it's all about Bill and Ted grown up, or not grown up," Winter told the website. "It's not going to feel like a reboot. The concept is really funny: What if you're middle-aged, haven't really grown up and you're supposed to have saved the world and maybe, just maybe, you kinda haven't?"

Harsh, dude. What else do we know?

- Keanu and Winter will play many different versions of Bill and Ted.

- Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot will handle the direction.

- A script has been ready for four years, but is contantly being reworked.
