No “E.T.,” “Back to the Future” Reboots Ever Planned

With so many films getting remade these days, even ones that were once thought untouchable, it’s nice to know there are some sacred cows that won’t be revisited any time soon.

In June filmmaker Robert Zemeckis confirmed that even if Universal Pictures wanted to, a remake of “Back to the Future” was impossible without the approval of himself and writer Bob Gale – something neither intends to ever give.

This week the franchise’s producer Frank Marshall, out doing home video promotion for “Jason Bourne,” tells Yahoo Movies that he’s also ensuring that no ‘Future’ reboot happens – and mentioned another 1980s classic he won’t see redone:

“Yeah [we won’t reboot Back to The Future], as long as I have my say. No, that one exists just like E.T. – we’re never touching those. I love watching it.”

“Back to the Future” celebrated its 30th Anniversary last year with a massive cast reunion Q&A drawing in over 2,000 fans.
