Christopher Lloyd, co-star of the beloved trilogy Back to the Future, says that the next installment in the film series should be about climate change.
Lloyd, who played the madcap Doc Brown in the films, has ruminated about a fourth installment of the hit 1980s series for several years. But now he insists that the next film should “convey a message” about climate change.
“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,” Lloyd said at the recent Niagara Falls Comic Con, according to ComicBook.com. “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.”...
Despite Lloyd’s oft-expressed enthusiasm for a Back to the Future 4, there are more reasons than making the film about climate change that dooms another installment. Series creator, Robert Zemeckis, has been just as adamant that there will never be another installment to the series while he is still alive.
