Tom Holland shows back for future reboot talks, and he was a part of them; He addresses deepfake about her, and Robert Downey Jr. is confirmed back to talks for Tom Holland’s future remake. The 1985 blockbuster Robert Gemkies film starred Michael J. Fox in his breakup feature film performance as Marty McFly, a casual time traveler. The film’s time machine, now the iconic Delorean, was the brainchild of the eccentric scientist Emmett “Doctor” Brown (Christopher Lloyd). Over five years, Back to the Future franchise was made up of three films, the first film, with Marty, accidentally traveling back to 1955 and finding his way back home to 1975, arguably being the most loved of the entire series. Even today, the film’s fanbase is so strong that sporadic calls by some to reboot back to the Future are usually met with extreme resistance.
However, this has not stopped some creative interpretations as protests that could play both Marty and Doc characters in a new version of the classic film. Earlier this month, a deepfake video emerged online in which one of the back for future famous scenes was produced with Martini McFly and Robert Downey Jr. as Holland as the Doctor. The entertainment was a particularly impressive one, leading many to believe that these two were the perfect cheer for a reboot.
Of course, the Internet is home to a vast array of suggestions, interpretations, and rumors about sequels and reboots. Just because they exist online does not mean that they will ever make their way into actual production. In a case back to the future reboot, however, Holland admits that not only has he seen the deepfake, but he was impressed with it, and the reboot talks have actually taken place. And while this may be exciting news for some, Holland stops short of saying that a return to the future reboot will actually happen. The story was revealed in an interview with Spider-Man star BBC Radio 1 when he said:
It is exciting (and likely troubling to many) that the Future is actually back for remake talks. However, before even hardcore fans can insist, Holland’s accolade for the original film and its acknowledgment that it remains one of the perfect movies and that it could never be done better is quite an assurance that That one reboot won’t be involved any time soon. It certainly doesn’t confirm there won’t be a return for future remakes, but for now, it seems like Holland isn’t quite interested in participating in one. At the very least, Holland admits that he is interested in adequately remaking the future deepfake scene with Downey Jr. However, that kind of legitimate promise seems to be more tongue in cheek humor. Holland was also previously linked to a reboot of another classic 1980s film: Ferris Bueller Day Off, back in 2014 when filmmaker Edgar Wright claimed to have worked on an updated version. We now know that it was little more than an April Fools prank, but for many, Holland seems to be the go-to actor to take on iconic roles in reboot films.
As far as reboots are concerned, some films seem to lend themselves to a better process than others. For its part, Back to the Future has managed to engage with audiences in a way that few films are capable of. Holland’s assessment that Backs to the Future is a widely held belief, and because of this, there doesn’t really seem to be any reason the film should be remade. But as we all know, one must be re-created does not always enter the equation. There’s no telling if the future remake will ever see the light back in the day, but for now, the only place of thought supporters are likely to see Holland as Marty McFly is in the deepfake mentioned above.
