Although Murata first teased the project in late 2016, he didn't make an official announcement until Thursday, during an event for Ready Player One held in Tokyo. Titled BTTF, the series will be overseen by Bob Gale, who wrote the 1985 film and its two sequels with director Robert Zemeckis.

It's worth noting that, while the manga is based on the screenplay for the original film, it apparently will also feature characters from 1989's Back to the Future Part II and 1990's Part III.

The movie of course starred Michael J. Fox as teenager Marty McFly, who's sent back in time by eccentric scientist Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean, where he becomes entangled in the lives of his future parents, and becomes his mother's love interest. Warned that those actions could result in him being erased from history, Marty must repair the damage he caused, and return to his own time. A box office hit, Back to the Future spawned two movie sequels, an animated series, comic books and video games.

Gale, who's written Daredevil and The Amazing Spider-Man for Marvel, previously teamed with IDW Publishing on a Back to the Future comic series based on the movie trilogy.
