The last film in the franchise, 'Back to the Future III', came out in 1990
Actor Christopher Lloyd, best known for his role of as Doc Brown in Back to the Future, says he would be keen on starring in another edition of the popular film franchise.
The original Back to the Future movie was released in 1985, with sequel Back to the Future Part II hitting cinemas in 1989, followed by Part III in 1990.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter recently, Lloyd said that he “would love to do Doc again, no question”.
“It’s tough to come up with an idea that contains the excitement of the original three,” Lloyd added. “So it would be a real challenge for the writers to come up with an original Back To The Future story that has the same passion and intensity and excitement as the other three. But it could be done, you never know,” he adds with a chuckle.
Lloyd also said that co-star Michael J Fox would be willing to be part of the project despite suffering from Parkinson’s disease since 1991.
“I think regardless of the Parkinson’s, he’d probably jump on the role and he’d be great,” the actor continued. “I can’t see doing another sequel without him… It’s hard to replace Marty. Michael J Fox was so wonderful in the role.”
Fans will celebrate ‘Back To The Future Day’ next week (October 21), marking the exact date that Marty McFly travelled to in Back to the Future Part II.
