Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly!
I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that Michael J Fox's Marty McFly was an icon of my youth as much as Captain Kirk, Luke Skywalker or He-Man ever was. I was old enough to see Back to the Future Part II & III in theaters but I can't begin to try to estimate how many times I had seen the original before or since. I had heard rumors for years that Eric Stotlz(Pulp Fiction, Some Kind of Wonderful) was originally cast as Marty and had even filmed some scenes. It never felt real though, it was like when you heard that the studio wanted Burt Reynolds for Rocky or that Tom Selleck was almost Indiana Jones, its fun to talk about but my brain just couldn't compute it. Well here we are on the 25th Anniversary of Back to the Future and we finally have our proof. For the first time they are officially releasing footage from the five weeks of shooting they did. You can check out the first taste on the video below from CNN and we are promised more on the Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy (+ Digital Copy) [Blu-ray] being relesed Oct 26.
