According to Entertainment Weekly, a rep for Robert Zemeckis has confirmed that he, along with writer Bob Gale, and composer Alan Silvestri, are “in preliminary creative discussions.”
Don’t get too excited just yet. The rep says that Zemeckis is still in the post-production period of his new film, FLIGHT, and there will be nothing for a good while.
No word on whether the staged version would include just Part 1, or the entire trilogy.
And if you’re wondering why there hasn’t been any personal notes from me about absolutely loving this idea, whether it’d be horrible or not, just because I’d get to see friggen BACK TO THE FUTURE on a stage, it’s basically because my heart and mind just exploded at the same time as I stood here.
But yes, for the record, I’d be the BTTF equivalent of those kids who go to see HARRY POTTER dressed in a Hogwarts uniform. Yay.
