Note: Please do not comment "Elsa Raven passed away in November 2, 2020" because this was way before that happened. Also, do not mention "He (Eric Stoltz) was formerly casted" because that way also way before that happened!
Before Michael J. Fox was cast as the role of Marty McFly in the classic 1985 science fiction, comedy film Back To The Future by Robert Zemeckis, Eric Stoltz was planned to fill out the role of Marty himself.
20th Century Fox dreamed of casting Michael J. Fox in the film, but were unable to as Fox had a fair commitment with the television sitcom Family Ties. So Robert Zemeckis asked Eric Stoltz to play the role.
The full footage of Eric Stoltz's performance as a whole showoff has never been released, although a lot of photographs and a couple dialogue clips have surfaced across the internet.
The plot would be the same as the 1985 film of the same name, but with some differences.
Why It Was Cancelled
- Robert Zemeckis felt that Eric Stoltz wasn't playing much of the type of comedy that the role required, so he fired him. By that time, Fox had now become available again, and filming resumed with him in the role.
- The Eric Stoltz version of Back To The Future was permanently cancelled.
- In 2010, for the 25th-anniversary release of the film on Blu-ray and DVD, several silent and non silent fragments of Stoltz playing Marty were included as part of a new documentary about the first film on the discs. The Opie And Anthony show revealed that Disney and Robert Zemeckis will not release the whole footage because they do not want to "embarass him" with the role.
- Since 2015, Eric Stoltz's video clip performances have surfaced.
- Back To The Future remained as it is today.
