Doctor Brown star Christopher Llyod says that he is keen on making a fourth installment of Back to the future in order to tackle climate change.
It has been almost three decades since 'Back to the Future III' hit the cinemas but some fans are hopeful we haven’t seen the last of Doc Brown and Marty McFly. Recently, Christopher Lloyd confirmed that he wishes to make a fourth installment of the hit franchise in order to tackle climate change. He teased saying that if the fourth movie does happen, it will carry an important message for the fans. Speaking at the Niagara Falls Comic Con, the 80-year-old said, "That's a tricky, tricky deal. Because you don't want to do another one and disappoint. So I don't know. I'd be happy to, for myself. But we'll see.”
As reported by Comicbook, Lloyd added, "I think somehow it needs to kind of convey a message about something that's important to everyone, universally, like climate change. Some way of incorporating whatever fever is going on at the moment into the film and keep the feeling of one, two and three.” Regarding the health-related issues of Michael J Fox, he added, "His Parkinson's, he has it, but it's kind of, 'So what?' He just moves ahead. It's very cool. A couple of months ago there was like a bunch of us, Back to the Future [cast], Tom Wilson and Lea Thompson ... we had a panel with all of us, and Michael just goes forth and talks, breaks people up, so it's very cool.”
The 80-year-old also said that he will return to the franchise if franchise co-creators and caretakers Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale “are excited about doing another episode.” In 2015, while celebrating the 30th anniversary of the movie Zemeckis said Universal Pictures could only bring the franchise back once both Bobs were dead. While talking to The Telegraph, he added, "And then I’m sure they’ll do it, unless there’s a way our estates can stop it." Zemeckis put off the rumors about a fourth movie in last summer when Lloyd’s willingness to reprise his role created buzz around another sequel.
Zemeckis, while speaking to an Italian based website called Bad Taste, said, "There will never, ever be, in the most absolute way, a Back to the Future 4. There will be no more Back to the Future.”
