Michael J. Fox Isn’t For A “Back To The Future” Reboot, But He Also Doesn’t Really Care Since He Got Paid Already

If you’re ever feeling nostalgic and want to binge on a few feel-good movies, look no further than Michael J. Fox‘s 80s flicks, especially the franchise that solidified him as an 80s icon, Back to the Future. And since Hollywood is out of original ideas, a Back to the Future reboot is probably inevitable. Michael J. Fox was asked for his thoughts about the possibility of a BTTF reboot without the original cast. No, he doesn’t think it’s a good idea, but his ultimate response was, “I’m good,” because he cashed that check decades ago.

During an interview with Variety, the subject of reboots came up, and I’m sure Michael was ready to yell “Cut!‘ like he was in the director’s chair. Because nobody asked for, nor do we need a damn Back to the Future reboot. And Michael had no time to be polite with his response because he already knows it would be an awful idea.

“I don’t think it needs to be,” Fox added. “I think [writer/director Robert Zemeckis and co-writer Bob Gale] have been really smart about that. I don’t think it needs rebooting because are you going to clarify something? You’re going to find a better way to tell the story? I doubt it.”

But Michael J. Fox then shrugged and admitted that he’s not THAT protective of the franchise:

If Hollywood ever opts to reboot “Back to the Future” without the original cast, [Fox] says he’s at peace with the decision.

“I’m not fanatical,” Fox told Variety for a recent cover story on his life and career. “Do what you want. It’s your movie. I got paid already.”

There really hasn’t been any word of a potential reboot, but hopefully, this movie will remain untouched. Because even now, the film still captivates audiences, but probably in a very different way since the future we were promised ain’t anywhere near the one we got. I’m still waiting on the Black and Decker pizza hydrator and have BEEN waiting since 1989! But, I digress (pardon my hunger).
