No Back To The Future 4
— Posted by John Campea
With the modern trend of old franchises heading back to the well LONG after their last installments (Rocky, Rambo, Indy) there has been some whispers recently about the possibility of the Delorean time machine revving up it’s engine again for another trip Back To The Future. However, as the good folks over at Moviehole point out, this isn’t going to happen:
i can appreciate where Gale is coming from and I respect his decision. Don’t get me wrong, if there were a fantastic script on the table with a Back To the Future story that just HAD to be told, then I’d be totally down with that. But make that decision based on a script… don’t base a script on a decision.
That’s what Indiana Jones 4 was… a script based on a decision. They first decided there was going to be an Indy 4… and THEN came up with a script. Instead, they should have waited to see if there was a great script that HAD to be told, and then made the decision to go ahead and make it. The result was still an entertaining Indy 4 movie… but overall disappointing and not worthy of the Indy name.
Plus… would anyone alive right now go see a Back to the Future 4 without Michael J Fox? No… I didn’t think so.
