Slashfilm broke a great story today about a remake of the classic hit, Back To The Future. Normally, I’d be pissed about that kind of thing. I hate remakes. They bring nothing new to the story and they usually suck. All that said. I’m pretty stoked about this. The remake is not some cheesy Hollywood deal starring kids from the CW. No, this remake is taking an turn east and heading for Bollywood!
Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai have been cast in Action Replay (yeah, horrible title…), a film which will be unofficially based on the popular 1985 Robert Zemeckis film Back to the Future. BTTF.com was able to contact Future producer/screenwriter Bob Gale who denied any knowledge of the production.
Action Replay will begin production in February 2009.
