With the number of classic movies getting reboots (and the box-office success of sequels like Jurassic World), fans may be wondering if a certain 1980s time-travel series could be returning to the big screen. But director Robert Zemeckis says that Back to the Future won’t be remade until well after he and co-writer Bob Gale have died.
“That can’t happen until both Bob and I are dead,” Zemeckis told the Telegraph. “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?”
Zemeckis’ next film, The Walk, will be released Oct. 2.
