Director Robert Zemeckis Says No to 'Back to the Future' Reboot
Hollywood is clearly out of ideas. They're remaking everything whether fans want a remake or not. But there's one beloved franchised that's not on the list. The director of the original Back to the Future films, Robert Zemeckis, has said that there will only be a remake over his dead body. According to Huffington Post, Zemeckis said that he would not approve a remake, nor would he approve making a fourth film in the series. It isn't just Zemeckis who is against the idea. Trilogy co-writer Bob Gale is also firmly against more Back to the Future movies. RELATED: See One Man's Fleet of Crazy Modified DeLoreans
The sad part is that we won't get to see that flying DeLorean grace the big screen, but the happy part is that we also won't have to see Hollywood remake, reboot, retool, and basically destroy one of the biggest film franchises of the '80s. Zemeckis told The Telegraph, "Oh, God no. That can’t happen until both Bob and I are dead. And then I’m sure they’ll do it, unless there’s a way our estates can stop it."
Zemeckis goes on to call the idea of remaking Back to the Future as insane as remaking Citizen Kane. There are some movies that shouldn't be messed with because there's no way to recapture and or even do justice to the original. As long as Zemeckis lives, Back to the Future is safe.
