NEW YORK (AP) — Director Robert Zemeckis is literally going back into the past for his next project — a stage musical of "Back to the Future."

Producers said Thursday night that the sci-fi comedy franchise starring Michael J. Fox will open in London's West End in 2015, the 30th anniversary of the film. A Broadway run is a possibility if the new musical flies as well as the film's specially equipped DeLorean.

In the 1985 film, Marty McFly becomes a human guinea pig who travels back to his hometown in 1955. Once there, he gets caught up in the soap opera lives of his own teenage parents, including his mom who develops a crush on her future son.
