With a title like Keanu, it would be a little disappointing if the actual man didn't show up. And that's almost what happened. Keanu Reeves was asked to appear in the cat comedy caper, which has a storyline very similar to his own John Wick. His representatives declined the offer. It wasn't until very late in the game that Reeves decided he wanted to be a part of the movie, which will certainly help solidify its status as a cult hit.
It's unclear if Keanu Reeves' representatives even gave him the option to appear in the movie when it was originally presented to them. But what got the actor on board was his sister, who fell in love with the first trailer released back in February. The story, written by Key & Peele, revolves around two buddies searching for a lost cat. Reeves' sister thought it looked hilarious and showed him the footage, »
Fans have been hoping and praying for years that the long-awaited Bill & Ted 3 will get off the ground some day, with original Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter set to return as the title characters. We've known for quite some time that the script by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson has already been written, with Alex Winter teasing earlier this month that production may either begin at the end of 2016 or the beginning of 2017. Today we have a report from Metro.uk, with an unidentified source claiming that the story brings the Wyld Stallyns to London.
"The script is already written for the third film and much of it is set in the UK. The whole film is going to have a huge British feel. They'll time-travel through London and meet historical figures, meaning the Queen and Winston Churchill could get cameos."

Later this year, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, the follow-up to the 1989 time travel classic Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, celebrates its 25th anniversary, and for most fans, the perfect anniversary gift would be confirmation that Bill & Ted 3 is actually moving forward. The sequel has been in development for years, with Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) signing on to direct back in 2012 from a script by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, who wrote the first two movies. Forbes caught up with Bill S. Preston Esquire himself, Alex Winter, who confirms, once again, that Keanu Reeves is on board to play Ted Theodore Logan.
"How the **** would we make it if he wasn't on board? People always ask if Keanu's doing it and I'm like, 'No, I'm making a Bill movie.' Of course he's in it. I can't make a Bill & Ted movie without Keanu."

IGN recently caught up with actor Keanu Reeves to discuss the the status of the long-gestating "Bill And Ted 3" which would see Reeves and co-star Alex Winters reprise their iconic roles as Ted 'Theodore' Logan and Bill S. Preston respectively.
On the progress of the script and when the film will eventually receive the green-light Reeves gave a vaguely reluctant update saying:
"We’re closer and we’re not closer. We’re expecting another draft and hopefully we’ll get closer. We’re just trying to get the script together. 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. We’re really just still trying to get the story right."
