Travelling to the future and past with the DeLorean time machine while telling the time-travelling adventures of Marty McFly’s and his scientist friend Doc Brown, Back to the Future put the dream of a time machine into our lives and the production is still the subject of many series or movies.
One of the co-authors of the film, Bob Gale, recently made some comments on the possibility of a fourth upcoming movie and explained why it would never happen.
According to Bob Gale, years have passed and Michael J. Fox, one of the leading roles, is now 59 years old and has Parkinson’s. For this reason, it was certain that the fourth film will not come in the future because without Michael J. Fox, Back to the Future would have lost its charm.
Recently, Back to the Future’s Marty McFly, Michael J. Fox spoke about his disease and supported Gale’s explanations of not making a new movie by explaining that he had difficulty keeping the scripts in his memory.
Michael J. Fox, who has been dealing with Parkinson’s disease for many years, explained that as he approached the age of 60, he slowly lost the most important ability of an actor which is to memorize the lines of the script.
Here’s what he stated:
“I always had a real proficiency for lines and memorization. And I had some extreme situations where the last couple of jobs I did were actually really word-heavy parts. I struggled during both of them.”
Memorization is an essential part of being an actor, so his struggles doing it directed him into another field which he enjoys very much: Writing. He already wrote his fourth memoir named ‘No Time Like the Future‘ which will release this November.
Here’s what he said:
“I’m down to this. My guitar playing is no good. My sketching is no good anymore, my dancing never was good, and acting is getting tougher to do. So it’s down to writing. Luckily, I really enjoy it.”
