'American Reunion' Directors Want to Remake 'Back to the Future'... Eventually

** UPDATE - Jon Hurwitz now claims that they were joking about re-making Back to the Future. In a tweet sent to /Film, Hurwitz said, "...we were joking around and it was taken out of context. Nobody respects BTTF more than us." /Film strung together a series of tweets from Hurwitz, which you can read here.

With American Reunion set to hit theaters next week and their Harold and Kumar franchise safely enshrined in cult movie hall of fame (with a 3D movie to boot), writer-directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg inked a deal earlier this week with Universal Pictures.

Their two-year deal allows them shuffle through Universal's vast library of films and remake or re-imagine films that pique their interest.

When asked by Moviehole if there was one franchise they'd like to resurrect, the duo said, "Back to the Future. That's our favorite trilogy."

Fans of the time traveling franchise need not worry though as Schlossberg added, "I wouldn't want to do it now because people would be like, 'Oh, there's no way it will be as good as the original.' But 30 years from now when Spielberg's, like, 90 and those guys are kind of on their way out, and those movies just look really old because we're watching movies that are old, literally in two dimensions or something, it would be great to have all these classic that you're able to remake."

Having said that, the duo say their eyeing sequels as opposed to remakes.

"I personally would prefer  a sequel unless it's something that is so old that the general movie going public hasn't really seen the movie, and then  you could consider it a reboot."

Granted, it's going to be a very long time before Back to the Future gets remade, especially with producer Bob Gale and Steven Spielberg and director Rob Zemeckis retaining the rights to the movie. That been said, do you trust this beloved franchise in the hands of Hurwitz and Schlossberg or should some movies just be left alone?
