You don’t need money, don’t take fame, don’t need no credit card to ride this hype train! (Alternate take: Where they’re going, they don’t need one punch!)
Earlier today, a “celebration event” for the Ready Player One film in Tokyo. At the event, One-Punch Man artist Yuusuke Murata announced that is working on a new manga series, titled BTTF. The project is based on 1985 hit film Back to the Future.
According to Kono Manga ga Sugoi!, the series will include scenes that weren’t in the original movie. Bob Gale, who co-wrote the film with Robert Zemeckis, will be supervising the project. According to Murata, capturing Michael J. Fox’s likeness as lead character Marty McFly is “an extremely difficult challenge,” but promises that he’ll do his best.
The first volume is slated to ship to retailers on April 20. A sample page, as well as the first page from the series’s color opening sequence were released. You can check both out below.
Back to the Future is a 1985 film from Universal Pictures and Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment. The project was directed by Robert Zemeckis, and featured a script by Zemeckis and Bob Gale. Michael J. Fox starred as Marty McFly in the film, while Christopher Lloyd played Doc Brown.
The feature was an instant hit, grossing $381.1 million on a budget of $19 million. Two sequels were released in 1989 and 1990, respectively.
