Excellent! The long-rumored Bill + Ted sequel really is happening

There have been rumblings for a while now that a proper sequel to Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure is coming, with original stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter attached to return. But it's all just been rumblings—until now.

According to Vulture, Reeves, Winter and Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot are all on board to make this thing happen. The spec for the script was written by original creators Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, so if you liked the classics, this should have the same vibe.

The film would pick up in real time, showing what Ted Theodore Logan and Bill S. Preston, Esq., are up to now. It will not be a reboot or a reimagining. Hopefully the guys held on to their phone booth, because they're tough to find these days.

The sequel is still looking for a studio to take it on, and Parisot is gearing up to shoot the sequel to action flick RED later this year, so it could be 2013 before this thing actually ramps up. But, hey, it should happen at some point.

What do you think? Have you been waiting all this time to rock out one more time?
