is there a storyline for it?
I would imagine any BTTF IV film, should they ever make it(and they WON'T), would focus on Jules and Verne, the sons of Doc Brown. It worked on the short-lived Saturday morning cartoon.
Sure; it's not like any of the characters are dead or talent unavailable. Although (to me) it's an open question whether or not Robert Zemeckis still has a movie as fun and free-spirited as BTTF in him.
hollywood can make sequels to anything, as long as it rakes in the cash
The question isn't could they, it's should they. I think as it stands, the trilogy represents a complete story arc.
theoretically possible since MJ Fox is still alive, as is Chris Lloyd. but Foz surely can't pass for a teenager today. if they do an updated story involving him as a middle-aged adult, it wouldn't be any fun at all.
might be more interesting if they just focus on Doc Brown and his misadventures in travelling through time, with a cameo by Fox where the Doc drops in on him in, say, 2003, to visit.
If they found a way to resurect Ripley, they can definitely write a sequel for BTTF!
If Home Alone can get three sequels then anything is possible.
I don't think they can make a part IV, since at the end of part III it specifically SAYS: "The End."
SKYNET sends a robot back in time to kill Doc Brown from inventing the Flux Capacitor... Doc Brown's own future daughters-in-law come back to protect him, and also to avenge/prevent the future deaths of their husbands/Doc's sons (Skynet wants to be the only time travel-capable entity of the future, you see).
the ideas are endless!
come on, I would love to see another BTTF
I don't remember where it was but in one of the Q&A's or commentaries on the discs the issue of a sequel was specifically addressed by Zemeckis and he said that Universal COULD do a sequel as they own rights to the title, but he and Bob Gale own the rights to the characters and a part IV couldn't include Marty or Doc without their involvement. He has no interest in doing any further sequels.
I agree with him, there's nowhere for the story to go that wouldn't be a rehash.
Leave BTTF alone and don't make any more. Please. Further attempts to cash in on this unique series will only sully the original.
I think Fox sure could pass for a teenaged Marty. He's so youthful. Unfortunately, with Parkinson's disease he has very poor motor skills. He is constantly rocking back and forth in his seat, and it's saddening to see him try and walk.
dump Fox and bring in Freddie Prinze
Could they? Of course, cheezy scripts and bad sequels are a piece of cake. Would it be a good idea? Hell no.
It seems Michael J. Fox has recently been talking about a Part IV. Being a HUGE fan of the trilogy, I'm interested albeit very skeptical. From http://imdb.com/news/wenn/2005-12-21/#3
"Michael J. Fox is heading Back To The Future for a fourth time-traveling movie. The actor, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, admits he's in negotiations for a final film in the series - but only if they make his character as old as he is in real life. The former Spin City star wants to take over Christopher Lloyd's eccentric scientist character, Doc, in the sequel. He tells movie website Moviehole.net, "The only way it would work would be if I played Doc. I'm 44-years-old now and I'm not interested in running around on skateboards! I think after 1, 2 and 3 we all kind of felt we had done it. And I think if they did it again now they would do it with a younger cast and just do a different realisation of it, which would be fun." "
