Posted Friday January 31, 2014 12:35 PM GMT

It was one of the most popular films of the 1980s, catapulting Michael J Fox into super stardom, and “Back to the Future” is about to get the musical treatment.

Director Robert Zemeckis has announced plans to develop a stage show for London’s West End theater district, slated to open next year in honor of the movie’s 30th anniversary.

Jamie Lloyd has been tapped to helm the production with music composed by Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard.

Earlier today (January 30) Lloyd told press, "The production will include illusions, skateboarding and many other surprises that will capture the spirit of the film but freshly interpret it for a new audience.”
