Michael J. Fox allowed his likeness to be used for TellTale Games’ Back to the Future series, and AJ LoCascio did a great job of capturing the spirit of Marty McFly. But now according to the developer’s website Fox is going to make a return for the final episode in the series titled ‘OUTATIME!’. Michael won’t be playing the role of Marty McFly since this is already taken, rather he will be making a cameo as an (as of yet) unannounced character.
The PC and Mac adventure game is based on the hit Robert Zemeckis trilogy. Bob Gale, the original screenwriter was brought on board for the story and Christopher Loyd (aka Doc Brown) lends his voice as the whacky professor.
Although Michael J. Fox’s real voice isn’t in the game, he did give permission to use his likeness and the developers managed to track down AJ Locascio; a life-long Back to the Future fan who sounds a hell of a lot like Fox.
With the impending release of Robert Zemeckis’s classic sci-fi adventure trilogy, Back to the Future on Blu Ray, gaming fans will be pleased to hear of an upcoming game based on the films.
The game is being developed by Telltale Games and is to use the likeness of Michael J.Fox and Christopher Lloyd, better known as Marty McFly and Doc. Emmett Brown. Lloyd will be lending his instantly recognizable vocals to give the game an authentic shine. The screenplay writer for all three films, Bob Gale is working closely with Telltale on plot which is to be split into 5 episodes.
