As you may or may not know, Eric Stoltz was originally cast as Marty McFly in Robert Zemeckis’ Back to the Future.  However, after five weeks of filming, Zemeckis decided to replace Stoltz with Michael J. Fox and Stoltz’ footage became the stuff of Hollywood lore.  While the upcoming Back to the Future Trilogy Blu-ray doesn’t offer an in-depth look at the scenes Stoltz did, there’s a new documentary that does take some time to explore what happened and why Zemeckis ultimately chose to reshoot five weeks worth of footage with a different actor.

Hit the jump to check out the clip.  The Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy Blu-ray will be available to own on October 26th.  Click here for a full list of special features.
