The actor recently sat with Pheonix New Times, where he talked about the possibility of a fourth Back To The Future film being made.
“Well, I think its a matter of, first of all, it’s important if Bob Zemeckis and Bob Gale are excited about doing another episode [of Back to the Future], I think, really, the most important thing is if they can come up with the right idea. I think that’s the challenge is to come up with something that really is as good as the originals.”
He continued on to say:
“I suppose it could happen. I have not heard that they’re looking for that if they’ve made up their minds … hey, here’s something we could do, and they believed in it then they might get going to do it.”
When asked if he’d be interested in ever participating in a fourth film, Lloyd shared that he’d be “delighted,” as long as it has the right storyline:
“I’d be delighted,” Lloyd shared. “I’d love to be in a fourth film, if they could come up with the right idea that extends the story and does it as well as the first three.”
While we would be beyond stoked to see Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd reprise their roles, we don’t expect it to happen anytime soon.
Even though it doesn’t seem like a new BTTF is on the horizons, it does appear that Lloyd wouldn’t mind taking on some projects inspired from the 1985 film.
In the same interview with the Pheonix New Time, Lloyd shared that he wouldn’t mind lending his voice to Rick And Morty, a show that has taken some serious inspiration from Lloyd’s Doc Brown and Michael J Fox’s Marty Mcfly.
“I don’t follow it closely, but I’ve seen a few episodes and I gotta tell you, I think it’s a lot of fun. I know it’s some kind of parody of Doc and Marty”
He continued on to say that while he doesn’t follow it closely, he wouldn’t be opposed to lending Doc’s voice for a role on the show: “I’d like to, of course. I think it’s really fun.”
As for what character Lloyd would voice, well, he wouldn’t mind taking on the role of Rick’s father, telling the paper that “yeah, yeah. That’d be fun.”
We wouldn’t mind see Lloyd tackle a character on Rick And Morty!
Plus, with the show recently getting picked up for a massive 70-episode order, there’s a definite possibility that more of Rick’s family could make an appearance.
