The Hollywood to remake "A Match Made in Space" news story appears at the bottom left-hand corner of the front page of the October 22, 2015 issue of USA Today.

"And a Video Software store, with a sign in the window advertising 'The Video Classic: A Match Made in Space!' Wow, Marty thought. They'd made a movie out of his dad's book, too?"
—From Back to the Future Part II by Craig Shaw Gardner (quote, page 25)

A Match Made in Space was a movie based on the novel of the same name by George McFly, which was released in 1989.

While Marty McFly was in 2015, he saw the movie advertised in the window of a video software store in Hill Valley's Courthouse Square.[1]

The movie had featured martial arts sequences and country western songs added by Hollywood, and had been considered "a creative misfire as well as a box office bomb".[2]

However, according to a story by Michael Klastorin on the front page of the October 22, 2015 issue of USA Today, which was accompanied by a color thumbnail of the novel's front cover, Hollywood were planning a remake of the movie to be directed and co-written by Robert Zemeckis — whom George had actually turned down to direct the movie back in March 1986, thinking the director of Romancing the Stone was not the right choice, and telling his agent to continue shopping the movie rights around to other directors.[3]

When Klastorin spoke to George about casting ideas for the remake, according to George there was only one man in his mind who could play the alien, and hoped he could convince Zemeckis to cast Christopher Lloyd in the role.[4]
