Fans Rejoice! Two of the most beloved films of the eighties will apparently never receive the remake, reboot, spiritual sequel or television adaptation that so many other cherished properties seem to be getting lately.
Producer Frank Marshall has insisted that as long as he’s there to bat away the requests, there will never, ever be a reboot of Back To The Future. Robert Zemeckis revealed that it was impossible for Universal Pictures to reboot the franchise without the approval of the director and writer Bob Gale, but we now have word that even producer Frank Marshall won’t let it happen either.
“Yeah [we won’t reboot ‘Back To The Future’], as long as I have my say. No, that one exists just like ‘E.T.’ – we’re never touching those. I love watching it. But how about we almost got the Chicago Cubs victory right!”
Back To The Future celebrated its 30th anniversary this past year and if anything it proves the franchise is just as popular as ever. There was a 30th Anniversary Blu-ray set, a fake trailer for Jaws 19 and a massive cast reunion Q&A that drew in over 2,000 fans.
Back to the Future starred Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd as Marty McFly and Doc Brown. All three films made $416.7 million collectively at the box office. Steven Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial grossed $792.2 million worldwide.
