It’s Thursday, so it’s time to remake an 80s classic TV show or movie with an all-new cast. This week: Back to the Future, the classic 1985 Robert Zemeckis science fiction comedy about a time-travelling high schooler who accidentally changes his family’s past… and so threatens to wipe himself out of existence.
The original cast featured:
Marty McFly: Michael J. Fox
Doc Brown: Christopher Lloyd
Lorraine Baines (later McFly): Lea Thompson
George McFly: Crispin Glover
Biff Tannen: Thomas F. Wilson
Let’s say our remake is shooting for a 2010 release. If the new Marty is to travel 30 years into the past, he’ll land way back in the distant era of 1980. Man, we’re gettin’ old.
Here’s my dream cast for the remake:
Marty McFly: Shia Labeouf
Doc Brown: Bruce Campbell
Lorraine Baines McFly: Amber Tamblyn
George McFly: James McAvoy
Biff Tannen: James Franco
