Robert Zemeckis Will Not Allow Any Remakes Of ‘Back To The Future’

When asked if he'd ever consider allowing a remake, he told The Telegraph: "Oh, God no.

Genre fans in recent years have seen a number of movies and television shows be remade for modern audiences. Some of these have been successes, but most have not.

In a recent interview  director Robert Zemeckis said that he’d not sign off on any remakes of ‘Back To The Future’ in his lifetime, but he did admit that such a remake would most likely be a success if one did happen.

When asked if he’d ever consider allowing a remake, he told The Telegraph: “Oh, God no.

“That can’t happen until both [co-writer Bob Gale] and I are dead. And then I’m sure they’ll do it, unless there’s a way our estates can stop it.”

He added: “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?”
