Where we’re going, we don’t need televisions.
Get ready for some really heavy news, the beloved Robert Zemeckis’ classic, Back To The Future might become a real life Broadway musical with all the singing and everything.
“When the hell did this happen?” you ask? Well Deadline has the details:
Zemeckis is in early talks with his co-writer Bob Gale and the film’s composer Alan Silvestri to explore a stage transfer. A stage musical would be an intriguing way to reintroduce a franchise which, over three films, grossed nearly $1 billion worldwide. Zemeckis’ ImageMovers would be involved if this goes forward. The time travel film, which starred Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, holds up as well as the other live-action films Zemeckis directed. I’m still pissed that Universal scrapped the theme park ride based on the film. Silvestri, by the way, composed the music for such Zemeckis films as Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump and Cast Away.
I can’t wait to hear them sing a nice little melody about the Biff raping Marty’s mom.
