Back To The Future Producer Says There Will Never Be A Reboot

If there's any movie franchise that screams reboot potential, it's Back to the Future. After all, the distant future in Back to the Future Part II is now the recent past.

But it sounds like the trilogy will remain untouched and won't be remade for the 21st century. Series producer Frank Marshall told Yahoo! Movies there are no plans for a reboot, at least not on his watch.

"As long as I have my say, [it's safe]. That one exists just like E.T.–we're never touching those. I love watching it."

His statement lines right up with those of screenwriter Bob Gale, who ruled out a fourth movie back in 2014. He told Yahoo! Movies that the trilogy will stand as one cohesive piece.

"Let's face it, we've seen a lot of sequels that are made years and years later and I don't think I can name one that's any good that lives up to the originals," Gale said. "I don't think you can recapture it."

He also said director Robert Zemeckis likely won't go the way of George Lucas and alter the original films. "We're not going to do director's cuts or make a 3D version or change the special effects," Gale said. "People love them the way they are. We think they're really good. Let's not mess with it."

Meanwhile, it's hard to ignore how many predictions Back to the Future Part II got right about the present.
