Michael J. Fox Doesn’t Care About a Back to the Future Reboot

With the latest launch of “Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie,” the favored actor, who has been battling Parkinson’s illness since his analysis on the age of 29, has been doing the rounds lately on the interview circuit. Since his profession was sadly curtailed by the situation, his heyday invariably comes up: The breakthrough position in “Family Ties,” for which he received three Emmys; a string of hit comedy films like “Teen Wolf,” “The Secret of My Success” and, after all, the movies for which he’ll all the time be remembered, the “Back to the Future” trilogy.

When it involves the query of rebooting the unique movie, which was one of many greatest hits of the ’80s, Fox is forthright, telling Variety: “I’m not fanatical… Do what you want. It’s your movie. I got paid already.” That may seem to be a blunt perspective from the person who gave us the film’s breezy teen protagonist, who simply needed to play guitar, experience his skateboard, and hang around together with his girlfriend. But he has his causes past already cashing the cheque:

“I don’t think it needs to be [rebooted]… I think Bob [Zemeckis, director] and Bob [Gale, screenwriter] 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.”

He has a robust level. Like “Jaws,” “Back to the Future” is an nearly good film. Each time I see it, I attempt to spot a line that could possibly be omitted or a scene that could possibly be shorter or lower altogether, and I all the time come up missing. The two sequels aren’t as flawless, however taken as an entire, they make one of many best trilogies ever made.
