'Back To The Future 4' Is Definitely Never Going To Happen, Says Robert Zemeckis

"There will never, ever be, in the most absolute way, a 'Back To The Future 4'"

Any lingering hopes of a fourth instalment of Back To The Future have been comprehensively quashed by its director, Robert Zemeckis.

"There will never, ever be, in the most absolute way, a Back To The Future 4," he said to Italian website Bad Taste.

Then once more, for good measure: "There will be no more Back to the Future."

Zemeckis has been consistent on that point for some time. In 2015, he told The Telegraph that he and co-writer Bob Gale would have to be dead before another sequel could happen, and even then, they'd ensure that their estates tried to block it.

"I mean, to me, [a remake is] outrageous," Zemeckis said then. "Especially since it’s a good movie.

"It’s like saying, ‘Let’s remake Citizen Kane. Who are we going to get to play Kane?’

"What folly, what insanity is that? Why would anyone do that?"
