With October 21, 2015 being Back to the Future Day (the day Marty and Doc arrived in the future in Back to the Future 2), it would be the perfect time to announce a new movie. It may have been 25 years since the last part of the trilogy came out, but with such a large fan-base a fourth movie could be very well received. I know I would go to see it!
So, it seems, would Doc Brown himself.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Christopher Lloyd revealed he would be game for donning the white jacket once more.
"I would love to do Doc again, no question."
However, he understands it wouldn't be easy to get a fourth installment off the ground:
It's tough to come up with an idea that contains the excitement of the original three. 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 also revealed that he would only do it if the original cast and crew return, but despite Michael J. Fox battling Parkinson's, Lloyd believes he'd be up for reprising his role of Marty McFly:
"I think regardless of the Parkinson's, he'd probably jump on the role and he'd be great. I can't see doing another sequel without him."
Unfortunately, the co-writer and director of the franchise, Robert Zemeckis, has previously stated he will never make a fourth movie. And since he's the one with all the legal rights to the franchise, it sadly doesn't seem like we'll be getting a fourth movie any time soon.
