Even stars Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves–who additionally needs to keep making John Wick films–have been optimistic in recent times that the long-awaited sequel would truly occur. Nonetheless, so far nothing has truly been filmed.
Now, talking with Digital Spy, author Ed Solomon–who co-wrote the primary two movies with Chris Matheson–is shedding some gentle on the long-gestating mission. “We’ve been working for nearly 10 years to get this factor made; Alex Winter, Keanu Reeves, Chris Matheson, me,” he says. “We’ve a director–Dean Parisot, who did Galaxy Quest–Steven Soderbergh is one in all our producers. We’ve a beautiful meeting of individuals.”
There’s even a accomplished script that Solomon says the workforce is happy with, which was written on spec–meaning it was written unsolicited and no one was paid for it. “We spent years engaged on it as a result of we wished to get it proper, creatively,” he explains.

After all, given Carlin’s dying in 2008, it will be not possible to movie new Rufus scenes with out recasting. As an alternative, Solomon says the film is “not simply an homage to him, it is greater than that. His absence is part of the entire film.”
So what’s conserving the film from getting made? It merely cannot discover the required funding. “We’re having points elevating cash for it, getting it financed, as a result of what we get all of the time–all the time—is folks eager to reboot it,” he explains. “It is ‘Let’s do Invoice & Ted with new youngsters,’ however what we wanna do is the story of Invoice and Ted as middle-aged males, and inform what we expect could possibly be a extremely humorous, and really actually shifting, story about their lives and the place they’re now.”
Nonetheless, Solomon and the remainder of the Invoice & Ted workforce aren’t giving up but. Whereas there’s nonetheless no telling if it’s going to occur sooner or later, preserve your fingers crossed in hopes that finally Invoice and Ted will certainly face the music.
