Back To The Future, the original 1985 American sci-fi drama, is beloved to everyone. The film was written and directed by talented Robert Zemeckis and was widely appreciated by the audience. The franchise has had successful three parts even though the sequels to the first weren’t that accepted.
Is there going to be any sequel for the franchise?
The chances of the fourth film range from slim to none. And this has been ensured by Robert Zemeckis. Four years ago, Zemeckis said to The Guardian that there won’t be any sequel to the hit movie. He and producer Frank Marshall are determined about the story’s solidity and won’t allow the prospect of money into disturbing the story plot. In 2016, Marshall clearly said: “Yeah [there’s no Back To The Future 4], as long as I have my say. No, that one exists just like E.T. – we’re never touching those. I love watching it.”
It’s definite that the makers want to save the film’s integrity. And that’s a good choice but we all wanted some reboot in one way or another. Four years ago, Zemeckis said that there would be a sequel production over his dead body. Quite literally.
“That can’t happen until both Bob and me 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?”
It evokes a sense of dejection in us; two important figures say a straight no to its reboot. In addition to its success, the film has also been made into an animated series as well as a video game. But there’s not going to be any reboot, sadly. It’s probably best to get the idea of a sequel out from our minds.
