Continuing his tradition of sort-of-jokingly claiming Bill & Ted 3 might happen when MTV asks him about the made-up project, Keanu Reeves has again provided MTV a half tongue-in-cheek, half kind of serious response to the question of if we're going to get a dubious sequel to his telephone-booth-time-travel franchise. This time he added an impression of Werner Herzog, y'all:
"We're trying," said Reeves. "Alex and I are still friends and we're talking, and we're talking to [writers] 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."
[Reeves] already has plenty of ideas, from a 3-D black-and-white sequel to a multi-director extravaganza involving Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and Werner Herzog.
"I was just pushed by the idea of this innocence being confronted by the nihilism of the world," Reeves joked in his best Herzog impression. "And I thought that these two clowns could push our perspective of reality and truth to the forefront of meaning and knowledge."
Video of the impression that will probably get Keanu on SNL next season under the cut. Bonus: includes Keanu's humble admission he's almost 50. Yeah, yeah, we get it; you're aging supernaturally well.
I still don't think this is ever going to happen, but if it somehow does, please don't be about Bill Jr. and Ted Jr. and Napoleon Jr. Can I ask that much, Belated Sequel Gods?
