Frank Marshall says there will be no “Back to the Future” remake or reboot as long as he is involved.
“Yeah [we won’t reboot ‘Back to the Future’], as long as I have my say,” the producer told Yahoo Movies. “No, that one exists just like ‘E.T.’ – we’re never touching those. I love watching it. But how about we almost got the Chicago Cubs victory right?!”
Marshall served as executive producer on all three “Back to the Future” movies. The second film predicted a World Series win for the Cubs in 2015, which they managed to pull off this year.
Back in 2014, “Back to the Future” screenwriter Bob Gale said that a fourth movie in the franchise wasn’t going to happen.
“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,” Gale said. “That lives up to the originals. I don’t think you can recapture it.”
