Back to the Future: The Musical is Real, Coming in 2015

It has been announced that Back to the Future, the 1985 film responsible for our adult obsession with time travel, will be made into a musical that will debut in 2015 in London’s West End.

Bob Gale, the screenwriter for the trilogy, insists this is not a joke and that, in fact, he has been working on this for the last ten years or so.

Movie composer Alan Silvestri will return to write the music, with a book by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale. Our production manager has already begun preparing for his audition as the guy who tells Biff “I think he took your wallet! I think he took his wallet,” even though wrong movie, Chris. Wrong movie.

What scenes do you think they’ll turn into musical numbers? At the very least we are owed a rousing fight song titled “Hey You, Get Your Damn Hands Off Her.”
