We will probably never see a Back To The Future 4, that idea was poo-pooed by Bob Gale, who co-wrote and co-produced each of the Back To The Future films.
Here’s what Gale told Yahoo! back in October 2014:
“Let’s face it, we’ve seen a lot of sequels that are made years and years later and I don’t think I can name one that’s any good, that lives up to the originals. I don’t think you can recapture it.
We’re not going to do Director’s Cuts or make a 3D version or change the special effects. People love them the way they are, we think they’re really good. Let’s not mess with it.”
He said “sequels,” but he didn’t say anything about “prequels.” BTTF fanatic Tyler Hopkins took the idea of a Back To The Future prequel and ran with it so hard that he even created a tremendous trailer for the movie.
In the movie aptly titled 1.21 Gigawatts , the film delves into the backstory of how exactly Doc Brown got his hands on enough plutonium to power his time-traveling DeLorean, because everybody knows that you don’t just walk into a store and buy plutonium.
In the dramatic trailer, you’re gonna see some serious shit. Including Doc’s shady dealings with a Libyan terrorist group where he agrees to build them a nuclear bomb.
The incredible trailer was made by using clips from Back to the Future, My Favorite Martian, Camp Nowhere, Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead, Dennis the Menace, Zero Dark Thirty, Argo, The Sum of All Fears, Syriana, Iron Man, Dazed and Confused and Munich.
Awesome trailer Tyler and remember, if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.
