Back to the Future is one of the best movies of all time with some fantastic cast. If the filmmakers try to create a remake of the movie, who could play a role in 2020?
However, the franchise’s original trilogy does not have much scope to create a remake of it, but that does not stop the audience from speculating the modern version of the film.
Back to the Future is a sci-fi comedy film franchise directed and created by Robert Zemeckis. Neil Canton and Bob Gale produced the film for Amblin Entertainment by Steven Spielberg. The franchise follows the adventures of Doctor Emmett L. Brown and high school student Marty McFly as they use DeLorean time machines to travel time.
The first movie was the highest-grossing film in 1985, which encouraged the director to make the other two films back to back in 1989 and 1990. The sequels did not do well at the box office as the original one. The franchise also involved motion simulation rides at the Universal Studio Theme Parks in Orlando, Florida; Universal City, California; and Osaka, Japan.
Zemeckis’ trilogy was nominated for five Academy Awards and won the one for Best Sound Editing.
The first part of Back to the Future held an approval rating of 96% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 79 reviews. The second part received an approval rating of 65% from 60 reviewers, and the third part got 80% based on 44 reviews.
The fourth part of Back to the Future was an unlikely prospect with the original trilogy that satisfies the conclusion and jeopardized the directed sequels. However, the idea of the reboot of the series is enough to spread excitement among fans. The story of traveling of people through their family history could be said in many ways. The writer-director Zemeckis said he would obstruct any attempts for any modern-day sequel or remake.
The original trilogy of Back to the Future has its separate fanbase, and a sequel of the franchise won’t hurt the legacy. It might offer the audience a fresh perspective of the exciting franchise.
The cast original trilogy was very youthful, and the reboot should be a replica of the previous cast, in that case, which actors could fill the classic ensemble. In this article, we try to list down a few actors who would be perfect for some important film characters.
Tom Holland is one of the obvious choices for the role. The actor showcases his comedic talents and youthful energy in Marvel’s Spider-Man.
Holland is an English actor and started his acting career as the title character of Billy Elliot the Musical in London’s West End from 2008 to 2010 and is known for his starring role in the disaster movie The Impossible. The film received the London Film Critics Circle Award for Young Performer of the Year.
He featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero movies Captain America: Civil War playing the role of Spider-Man in 2016, Avengers: Infinity War in 2018, Avengers: Endgame in 2019. Holland is the youngest actor who received the BAFTA Rising Star.
Audiences know that Holland can play an innocent fifteen-year-old; however, Marty’s character is different from usual. It required a brilliant performer to live up to the mark of the character.
Apart from that, Holland can also play guitar, which Fox had to learn before featuring in the first part of Back to the Future movie and for the famous “Johnny B. Goode” sequence.
Robert Downey Jr.’s fake video as a scientist Doc Brown seems a cool casting for the role. Downey is an American actor and featured in the Time for most influential people in the world. He is one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood right now.
Downey started his acting career from Pound in 1970. He played the title role of Chaplin in the biopic and was nominated for Academy Award for Best Actor and won a BAFTA Award. Later he featured as Tony Stark aka Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man in 2008. He also played the title character in the movie Sherlock Holmes in 2009, for which he earned the second Golden Globe.
In the original trilogy, Jennifer is the girlfriend of Marty. The character was underserved and underwritten by men who could not come out into the proper narrative. Hopefully, the character would be reimagined in the remake and have some importance in the main storyline.
Zendaya would be unique in the role of Jennifer Parker. Zendaya started her career as a child model and is known for her fantastic performance in The Greatest Showman, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far from Home, and many more. She received the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Euphoria as a teenage drug addict.
The above are few actors who can be a part of the classic franchise’s remake Back to the Future.
