This is heavy. Why can’t Michael Bay leave precious film franchises alone?! Michael Bay has signed on to do a reboot of Back To The Future but that’s not even the worst of it! Wait until you hear who he cast as our beloved Marty McFly and Doc Brown! I’m not exactly happy about this news.
Shia Labeouf will be returning to acting and playing Marty Mcfly (no no no no no no) and Marky Mark Wahlberg will don the fake grey hair and old man makeup to play Doc Brown. Maybe they will be CGI too? In rounding out the casting news and Transformers reunion, Megan Fox will play Lorraine (don’t mind that!), and Josh Duhamel will play Biff Tannen. After all, Michael Bay likes to hire the same actors.
Variety reported on the news first:
GREAT SCOTT! Michael Bay has just signed a deal to direct, product, and write a remake of Back to the Future. Robert Zemeckis will executive produce and Trent Reznor will score the movie. The action director has cast a bunch of familiar faces in Shia Labeouf, Mark Wahlberg, Megan Fox and Josh Duhamel. Sources have said a few more Transformers actors and crew will be apart of this new franchise. Fans are either going to love this or absolutely hate it. Let’s hope Michael Bay doesn’t screw this franchise up too.
