In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Lloyd, who played Dr. Emmett Brown in the famous flicks, said that he'd be willing to reprise his role for a potential "Back to the Future 4."
"I would love to do Doc again, no question," Lloyd told THR.
The only caveat for Lloyd, of course, is that the entire original cast and creative team would need to sign on, too, including Michael J. Fox, Lea Thompson, Thomas F. Wilson, writer Bob Gale, and director Robert Zemeckis. And though he'd happily take part in a fourth flick, the actor admitted that it was probably unlikely to ever occur.
"It's tough to come up with an idea that contains the excitement of the original three," Lloyd told the trade. "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."
We'll keep our fingers crossed. A fourth film announcement would be a great present on, say, October 21, 2015.
