I recently watched the Back to the Future trilogy again, and they’re still pretty entertaining, fun movies. The “future” that they visit in part II is 2015, next year. That got me thinking. They really should take that “anniversary” as an opportunity to make a part IV.
Michael J. Fox is back acting, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Thomas F. Wilson, James Tolkan are all still with us, so all the major cast members could return.
My idea for the jumping off point for the plot: It’s 2015 (the one we live in), where are the flying cars and the hover boards? Marty realizes that things have been changed, meaning that in his and Doc’s previous time travels they must have messed something up, again (or still). So he needs to find Doc and get it fixed. Somehow he contacts Doc and for some reason (hey, the writers need to do some of the work) they need to go back to 1955.
With current digital effects, the movie makers could insert today’s actors into the actual scenes from the previous movies, weaving the stories together.
So who’s with me? Any more ideas for the plot? Who can we contact to get this moving? Anyone have Robert Zemeckis’ direct number? Or Michael’s?
