The “Back to the Future” trilogy documentary “Back in Time” will be released this October. Gravitas Ventures acquired the rights to the life history of one of pop culture’s most important movies. Read on for more details.
The founder and CEO of Gravitas Ventures Nolan Gallagher was elated as he explained to Deadline the culturally impact of this undertaking.
“Iconic documentaries, like a bolt of lightning, only come around so often. We are honored to be a part of the ‘Back to the Future’ mythology and bring this must-have film to the millions of fans who have loved the trilogy all these years.” Gallagher said.
Jason Aron and Lee Leshen, the brainchild duo behind the documentary and obviously rabid fans of Robert Zemeckis time-travelling adventure movie, added, “It was extremely important for us to have this documentary seen by as many people as possible. We knew within minutes of meeting Nolan that the team at Gravitas would make that dream a possibility.”
The independent film distributor’s selection of releasing “Back in Time” precisely on Oct. 21, 2015 is due to the “Back to the Future” lore of Marty McFly, Doc Brown and Jennifer visiting the future in the movie on that exact same date.
The said documentary, as Indie Wire reports, will include interviews with the main cast Michael J. Fox, Lea Thompson and Christopher Lloyd, director Robert Zemeckis, producer Steven Spielberg and screenwriter Bob Gale. It documentary will also have Huey Lewis. His song “Back in Time” was written by his band The News especially for the 1985 film. It also examines the dismissal of Eric Stoltz for Fox after more than a month of shooting and the invention of the infamous hover board.
According to Variety, last March, director Aron had amassed almost 90% of the $50,000 crowdfunding goal it started on Kickstarter.
“Back in Time” is also executively produced by Aron along with Louis Krubich, Akrum Sheikh and Ronald Ferguson. Adam F. Goldberg (“The Goldbergs”) served as Co-Executive Producer with producer Lee Leshen.
