Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd mark Back To The Future Day on US TV
Actors Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd appeared on US TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this week to mark Back To The Future Day.
Wednesday – October 21, 2015 – is the date Fox’s Marty McFly and Lloyd’s Doc Brown travelled to in 1989 classic Back To The Future Part II.
Talking about how the world has changed, host Kimmel explained that we don’t have flying cars, how most people will be watching the show not on the TV but “tomorrow, while on the toilet” and how there are hoverboards in 2015 but they’re “not really hoverboards”.
The third and final film to date, Back To The Future Part III, was released in 1990, but Lloyd has now spoken enthusiastically about reviving the franchise a quarter of a century later.
“It’d have to be something momentous and current: dealing with ISIS or climate change or something radical and have a real urgency to it,” Lloyd said of a potential fourth film. “I don’t know what that would be.”
In another recent interview, 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,” Lloyd said. “I can’t see doing another sequel without him… It’s hard to replace Marty. Michael J Fox was so wonderful in the role.”
