Tom Holland discussed the highly popular deepfake video of him and Robert Downey Jr. as the stars of Back to the Future in a recent interview with BBC Radio 1. In the video below, Holland admitted that although he believes a reboot is not necessary, he has had conversations to star as Marty McFly.

Holland spoke more about the potential project:

“I’d be lying if I said there hadn’t been conversations in the past about doing some sort of remake, but that film is the most perfect film — or one of the most perfect films, one that could never be made better. That said, if [Robert Downey Jr.] and I could just shoot that one scene that they remade for fun — he could pay for it cause he’s got loads of money — I would do it for my fee and we could remake that scene. I think we owe it to deep fake because they did such a good job. … I think I’m gonna speak to Robert and see if we can try to recreate something for deep fake.”

Deepfakes have become a trend for fan-casting and character assassinations alike, utilizing a process that allows someone’s face to be placed seamlessly over somebody else. Because the relationship Peter Parker and Tony Stark in Spider-Man: Homecoming was so reminiscent of the relationship between McFly and Doc Brown, an editor latched their faces into an iconic scene from Back to the Future that fans have remarked is highly fitting and organic of both actors.
