Alex Winter Keanu Reeves Chris Matheson Ed Solomon

'Bill & Ted 3' will feature multiple versions of the film's titular characters.

Alex Winter - the actor and filmmaker who played Bill S Preston alongside Keanu Reeves as Ted Theodore Logan in the earlier films - explained the third movie will start with Bill and Ted in their 40s.

He told Yahoo! Movies UK: ''It fits very neatly in the [series]. It's not going to feel like a reboot.

Venom To 'shake Up' Superhero Films


Roberto Orci Alex Kurtzman Ed Solomon

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' writer Roberto Orci wants to ''shake up'' the superhero genre with the upcoming 'Venom' spin-off.

The acclaimed screenwriter has been tasked with writing a spin-off to the popular web-slinging franchise, along with Alex Kurtzman and Ed Solomon, and he says the trio hope to spice up comic book films by focusing on Venom, one of Spider-Man's most feared rivals.

Quizzed what audiences can expect from 'Venom', he said: ''I think they're ready to have things shaken up. I think we've all seen everything. You've seen everything. You can probably predict the ending of most things even better than a general audience, but a general audience is still pretty good at it. They can see it all coming. So we have to shake it up. You can't just keep telling the same stories every day.''

Sony Pictures has announced two 'Amazing Spider-Man' spin-off films, 'Venom' and 'The Sinister Six'.

The movie studio is planning to expand its comic book franchise in a manner similar to Marvel's 'The Avengers' by announcing two movies focusing on the web-slinging hero's villainous foes.

Sony has hired five writers to work on the franchise, including the two spin-offs and the third and fourth instalments of 'Amazing Spider-Man'. The scribes include Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon and Drew Goddard. They will work with 'Amazing Spider-Man' producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, as well as director Marc Webb, on the films.

Now You See Me Review


OK

The idea of magicians conducting a series of heists is a great one, but this under-developed film never quite seizes the opportunity. Even its terrific A-list cast can't make much of the lame plot. And director Leterrier is so enamoured with magic that he packs the film with whizzy digital trickery. Which completely misses the point.

At the centre are four illusionists: card trickster Daniel (Eisenberg), hypnotist Merrit (Harrelson), escapologist Henley (Fisher) and street magician Jack (Franco). They're summoned by a mysterious figure to team up for a series of elaborate performances funded by a wealthy benefactor (Caine). First up is a Las Vegas show that involves stealing millions of euros from a Paris bank and raining them down on the audience. This attracts the attention of FBI Agent Rhodes (Ruffalo) and Interpol's Dray (Laurent), who follow them to their next shows in New Orleans and New York. As does a notorious debunker (Freeman) determined to expose their secrets.

The film never quite gets the balance right, as we're not sure if we should root for these flashy young magicians or the people they're leading on a wild goose chase. But there's plenty of eye candy to keep us happy, as each whizzy stunt goes over-the-top to make us wonder what's really happening here. Everything this quartet does has an anarchist slant, stealing from the wealthy to help the needy, which adds a tinge of topicality. Although the gratuitous action scenes and ludicrous effects leave the film about as realistic as a Road Runner cartoon.

Keanu Reeves is thrilled with The Script for a third 'Bill and Ted' movie.

The 'Matrix' actor - who starred as Ted Logan in 1989's 'Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures' and its follow-up 'Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey' - is excited about a new instalment of the movie with original co-star Alex Winter and says the script is promising.

He said: ''We have a script, we're trying to put it together right now. It's a good script too.''

Bill & Ted 3: Keanu Reeves Confirms Bill & Ted 3


Keanu Reeves Chris Matheson Ed Solomon Alex Winter

BILL & TED 3, the third instalment of the cult 'Bill & Ted' franchise, is officially on its way, according to Keanu Reeves. The actor, who played Ted in the movies, says the writers are around six weeks away from a draft of the script, reports MTV News.

The actor says 'Bill & Ted 3' is likely to build on previous storylines, saying, "When we last got together, part of it was that Bill and Ted were supposed to have written the song that saved the world, and it hasn't happened. So they've now become kind of possessed by trying to do that. Then there's an element of time and they have to go back". Previously, Reeves had said that the original screenwriters Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon were "going to try and see" if they could write something. 'Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure' in 1989 and the sequel 'Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey' in 1991 co-starred Reeves and Alex Winter as high school students traveling through time to piece together a history project. In the third movie, the characters are now in their mid-forties, something that Reeves described as "pretty excellent".

Before beginning work on 'BILL & TED 3', Keanu Reeves will first star in the action-drama '47 Ronin' about a band of samurais who set out to avenge the death of their master.

Keanu Reeves: 'Bill And Ted 3 Script Due'

He told MTV News: "I believe the writers are six weeks away from a draft. No pressure guys!

The In-Laws (2003) Review


Excellent
Has Michael Douglas found The Fountain of Youth in Catherine Zeta-Jones? Since the Gordon Gekko days of Wall Street fame, his body is certainly a little less nimble, his face a little more wrinkled, and his hair a shade too light. But the guy looks great, and he's once again an action hero. That bumps him up from "silver spoon" to "ageless wonder" in the Hollywood classification book - ever closer to the royalty of perennial good lookers Redford and Basinger.

In The In-Laws (based on the 1979 film of the same name), like most other Michael Douglas vehicles, his gaunt face is rarely off the camera. Wisely, director Andrew Fleming inserts a hilarious Albert Brooks as the perfect remedy for Douglas's self-absorption.

Charlie's Angels Review


Grim
The spy game is up. You can thank Charlie's Angels -- the movie -- for that.

When did banality and pandering become okay? Just steal from Hong Kong, The Matrix, and a kitschy TV show from the mid-1970s and that's a movie? Charlie's Angels is one of the worst examples of action film homogeneity and shameless duplicity in any film I've seen in ages.
