Cult 1980s film 'Back To The Future' has been turned into a musical by original director Robert Zemeckis.
'Back To The Future' is being turned into a musical.
A stage version of the hit 1985 movie - which starred Michael J. Fox as time-travelling teen Marty McFly - has been given the green light to debut in London's West End in 2015.
Robert Zemeckis, who co-wrote and directed the original film, will team up with co-writer Bob Gale once again to pen the adaptation.
Gale commented: ''[It will be true to the spirit of the film without being a slavish remake. We intend to use music from the movie along with brand new songs to make a version of 'Back to the Future' that is fresh, entertaining and takes advantage of all the amazing things that can now be done on stage.
''We can't think of a better way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the film.''
Alan Silvestri will co-write the music and lyrics with songwriter Glen Ballard, while Jamie Lloyd - who directed James McAvoy last year in a sell-out production of 'Macbeth' in London - is on board to direct.
The original film saw Fox's character travel back to 1955 and accidentally attract his own mother's romantic interest, before trying to fix the problem with the help of wacky scientist Dr. Emmett 'Doc' Brown (Christopher Lloyd).
'Back to the Future' is just the latest in a series of retro movies to be turned into a musical including 'Dirty Dancing' and 'Ghost'.
