Back to the Future nostalgia is at an all-time high, what with it being the 30th anniversary of the first film’s release this year; not to mention the October 21, 2015 date that Marty McFly traveled to in Back to the Future Part II being less than two weeks away. According to series director Robert Zemeckis however, franchise nostalgia won’t lead to more sequels being made.
In an interview with IGN while promoting his new film, The Walk, Zemeckis crushed any hopes of a new installment in the franchise when asked whether there were any new Back to the Future stories to tell. “We’ve done a trilogy, the movies turned out really well and those are the only Back to the Future stories we have left in us,” he said.
While this news will likely come as a blow to diehard fans looking for more Delorean-themed time travel stories, we’re honestly completely fine with this news. The Back to the Future trilogy is fine as it is; besides, 54-year-old Michael J. Fox has been pretty adamant about not wanting to jam himself back into that uncomfortable car again. We can’t say we blame him.
