‘Back to the Future’ has to be one of the most iconic films ever made, released in the 80’s and even today people would still sit down and watch it. This movie trilogy is without a doubt one of the greatest I’ve ever seen; I’ve actually bought all three and would guard it with my life. Which leads to the announcement of a new movie called ‘Great Scott’ and has been called a love letter to the iconic trilogy.
‘Great Scott’ is to be set in England and this is what we know about the story so far, “slightly despondent working class teenager who would do anything to escape his mundane life and live out the kind of adventures Marty McFly did in the hit film.” Honestly, this isn’t much information to judge from but I do love the title.
I’m not sure what to expect from ‘Great Scott’ and what approach they’ll be taking with its script, will it be similar to the style of the original? Or will it simply take matters in its own hand and create something different fans haven’t seen? All I can say is that I’m excited, and I really hope that this film succeeds and doesn’t simply bomb.
