What Kind Of Excellent Adventure Has Alex Winter Been On Since We Saw Him Last?

- Page 1

After starring in a few of the biggest movies of the the late 80s and early 90s, Alex Winter seemed to vanish from the big screen. The Lost Boys came out in 1987, and it was absolutely amazing. Just two years later he returned in the comedy classic Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, where he was playing Bill S. Preston Esq., and going on the trip of a lifetime.

He followed it up by coming back for the sequel, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, but after that, he realized he wanted more. Winter wanted to be a bigger part of the creation process, so in 1993, he signed on to make the movie Freaked with his former Bill & Ted team and together the three of them wrote, produced, and directed the film.

While it was never widely released, it managed to become a cult classic. Winter seemed to have found a passion for direction, but there was a huge span of time where he didn't do anything. He didn't act in any feature length films from 1991 until 1997, and he didn't direct again until 1999. And even then, after his brief return he was gone again until 2012.  

So what has he been up to all these years?
