But what if Back To The Future was made today? Who would be the potential cast in today’s date? In this article, we have discussed some of the characters who have great potential to replace the old cast of Back To The Future if this film has to be made today.
Anya Taylor-Joy As Lorraine Baines-McFly
The character of Lorraine Baines-McFly is originally played by the famous Hollywood actress Lea Thompson in the 1985’s film Back To The Future. She has been depicted as a caring and wild personality woman. To make the remake of this film in today’s date, Anya Taylor-Joy is one of the finest Hollywood actresses who have the potential to portray the character of Lorraine Baines-McFly. It can be realized by watching Anya’s roles in her previous movies, which include the role of Emma in the film Emma (2020) and Beth in The Queen’s Gambit (2020). In all of these movies, she has played both playful and serious roles.
Dacre Montgomery As Biff Tannen
Thomas F. Wilson portrays the character of Biff Tannen in the original film. Biff is well known for his tough, insecure, and dense looks and behavior. He does not have a good relationship with the McFly family, and according to the time and storyline, their dynamic keeps on constantly changing during the entire film. To become one of the most powerful and richest men in Hill Valley, he changes history, belittles George, and pursues Lorraine. Dacre Montgomery is a very talented Australian actor. After watching his performance in Stranger Things as Billy, he would be the perfect candidate to play the role of Biff Tannen.
Dylan Minnette As George McFly
The character of George McFly is portrayed by Crispin Glover in the original film as an unlucky person who faces trouble and issues standing up and respecting himself against Tannen. He even tries to impress Lorraine but fails in front of Marty, who has already impressed her. If someone has to be cast for George McFly today, Dylan Minette would be the perfect actor as he has already performed the roles of vulnerable and emotional characters before.
Tom Holland As Marty McFly
One of the most popular Hollywood actors Tom Holland will be a perfect choice to portray the character of Marty McFly if the film Back To The Future has to be made today. In the original film, the character of Marty is played by Michael J. Fox, who has a similar look as that of Tom Holland. Many viewers want him to be cast in the remake of this film after watching Tom’s performance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as clever, comedic, and enthusiastic Peter Parker. Marty McFly goes through the events of the future and past as a smooth wingman, who can be a cowboy, cool rocker, and a 17-year old boy. It would be a great opportunity for Tom Holland, who fits perfectly in the role of Marty McFly.
Peter Capaldi As Dr. Emmett Brown
The character of Dr. Emmett Brown is portrayed by the famous Hollywood actor Christopher Lloyd in the original film Back To The Future. Emmett Brown is considered to be the heart of the film series in several ways. He is also considered the madness, the brains, and the cause in the entire film series. Marty is one of his close friends, and their friendship becomes stronger through time. If the film was to be made today, Peter Capaldi is one of the great choices who can play the role of Dr. Emmett Brown successfully. Peter has already played the role of a Doctor in Doctor Who. He can perform various roles such as serious, emotional, chaotic, and eccentric.
