When ever there is a marathon of a favorite film franchise on cable (as there recently was of the Back to the Future series) I fret and wonder if a reboot or remake is not far away. Thankfully, according to Robert Zemekis a back to the future remake could actually happen….. over his dead body…
Zemeckis did not mince words when The Telegraph asked him whether he would ever consider agreeing to a remake:
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.
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?
