The Alien was a character in George McFly's first novel A Match Made in Space, which was published by Probert Publishing[1] in 1985 and made into a movie in 1989.

According to a story by Michael Klastorin on the front page of the October 22, 2015 issue of USA Today, Hollywood were planning a remake of the movie adaptation of A Match Made in Space, to be directed and co-written by Robert Zemeckis.

When Klastorin spoke to George at his home in Hill Valley 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.[2]
