Of course, the Back To The Future trilogy is one of the rare Hollywood franchises to not receive a modernized reboot, and many consider that to be the right move – including the series’ writer-director himself, Robert Zemeckis. In fact, the Forrest Gump filmmaker even went as far as saying that he’s “adamant” that a new Back To The Future sequel will not happen in his lifetime. I mean, you can’t get much more crystal clear than that, right?
As you probably already know, reboots and sequels to long-standing, classic franchises can be a prickly business. If they’re not executed with precision, fans usually end up rallying against them, which is pretty understandable. Perhaps leaving the emblematic time-travelling flicks to age gracefully may be the best move for the franchise, then?
But what say you? Tell us, would you be up for a new Back To The Future sequel? Or should the iconic sci-fi series be left to rest in peace? Jump in your Deloreans and sound off in the usual place down below.
