Back to the Future Director Won’t Allow Any Remakes

In a day and age where a large percentage of movies are sequels and reboots, lovers of classic films are finding themselves in fear that they will wake up to the news that their beloved epic is being ‘reimagined’ in the hands of someone else.

But when it comes to genuine classic Back to the Future, the film’s director Robert Zemeckis has moved to assure fans that any plans to remake Marty McFly’s journey will have to wait, hopefully for a very long time.

Speaking to The Telegraph on if he would ever allow a remake, Zemeckis said;

“Oh, God no. “That can’t happen until both [co-writer Bob Gale] and I are dead. And then I’m sure they’ll do it, unless there’s a way our estates can stop it. 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?”

Universal would be contractually obliged to obtain permission from Zemeckis and Gale if they wanted to push on with any remake plans, and as that would appear to be less than forthcoming, we can rest safe in the knowledge that the time-travelling movies we know and love aren’t going to be reimagined any time soon.
