Here is the original script for Back to the Future.

http://www.scifiscripts.com/scripts/back_to_the_future_original_draft.html

Key differences include:
-Marty is a video bootlegger
-the setting is a medium-sized city, instead of friendly small town Hill Valley
-there is no Delorean

The plot is basically the same, but the little differences are interesting.  And the climax is quite different.

That's an odd thing, to have Marty as a video bootlegger. Was bootlegging really a big deal in the mid-80's?

I'm not sure of the prevalence of bootlegging at the time, but I do know prerecorded tapes were very expensive. Especially as this was written in 1980/81.

Maybe it was to make him seem more of a rebel. Or to fit in with the setting (in the present, the city is run down, with lots of abandoned buildings and boarded up windows.)

So much difference in the dialogue as well. I have to say, I'm glad the script was re-written.

...man, they should've stuck with the Jan DeBont script.[/offtopic]

I'm wondering what they have planned to
celebrate Marty McFly's arrival in our time? They're hinting at
something... but what?

I highly doubt there is a film involved. Likely just some type of media event with the stars and such. That's my guess.

Looking forward to this one... Adam F. Goldberg is involved in a producing capacity:

That looks interesting. Not sure if I would like it. Depends on if it's more technical stuff or just a lot of slobbering talk about how great it was.
