Robert Zemeckis is coy on discussing the 1985 ‘Back to the Future’ franchise, nevertheless he disproved the recent allegations that a revamped version of the classic would be made.
Zemeckis showed himself disinterested and even appalled to the idea, briefly stating in an interview with Telegraph:
“I mean, to me, that’s outrageous. Especially since it’s a good movie. It’s like saying ‘Let’s remake Citizen Kane. Who are we going to get to play Kane?’ What folly, what insanity is that? Why would anyone do that?”
On the other hand, he couldn’t be more right – the movie is a classic, riddled with iconic elements and a type of inventiveness you couldn’t possibly replicate. Besides, given its futuristic characteristics, it maybe would be adapted in a slightly faded-out version, given the mundane ubiquity of technology. Unless Spielberg or Gale himself would consider the remake, then the matter should be forsaken.
In the meantime, whilst the world is triggered into a non-sensical hunt for more detailed reasons, remember to fix up a date for engaging in a marathon of the series to remember just how great Michael J. Fox was in the role of Marty McFly. I sure wish I had the chance to own a DeLorean time machine when I was his age!
