A true classic of the 80’s maybe headed to Broadway. Deadline says Robert Zemeckis is hitting up co-writer Bob Gale and composer Alan Silvestri to develop a musical based on Back To The Future. Obviously details are scarce at this point, but come on Broadway, this is a sure hit.
The nature of BTTF lends itself to the stage in a great way, you can already hear the Doc Brown number titled ‘Great Scot’, the hilarity of the band tryouts, the dullardish tune that Biff will belt out, the damn movie ends with a shreading guitar based rendition of Johnny B. Good by hero Marty McFly. Do we have to spell it out for you?
The trilogy has made over a billion at the box office, new a new life on Broadway would be good way to keep it a live, besides if they hammer this out maybe it will take away any chance for a remake/reboot in the near future.
No one wants that.
