This year played a pivotal role to the "Back to the Future" franchise.

It was in October when Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) visited 2015 from the 1989 movie "Back to the Future 2."

The scene were McFly introduced a power laces shoes, hover board and flying cars in the future (today) became iconic.

And while most of the technological advancement from the movie are still not available today, the possibility of having a "Back to the Future 4" movie excites fans.

Apparently, Christopher Lloyd, who played the iconic character Doc or Doctor Emmet Brown, has already expressed his interest in reprising his role for a fourth sequel.

The 77-year-old actor shared his thoughts in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

"I would love to do Doc again, no question," the actor exclaimed. "[But] it's tough to come up with an idea that contains the excitement of the original three."

But while Christopher Lloyd would glady return to a "Back to the Future 4" movie if pushed through, he did explain how challenging it would be for Universal Pictures to link the last film, which was released in 1990 today.

"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," he said. "But it could be done, you never know."

Meanwhile, Lea Thompson, who portrayed the role of Marty McFly's mother, Looraine Baines McFly, also expressed her thought of a possible "Back to the Future 4" movie.

"It's surreal thinking about something I did a long time ago," Thompson said about a possible "Back To The Future 4" release date in an interview with The Toronto Sun. "It's kind of weird, but it's nice."

She also shared the experience of having to act with all the heavy makeup and prosthetics for the scenes which required her character to be old.

"Age makeup is kind painful, and it's strange to act in because if you move your face too much you tear it, and if you tear it you ruin the whole day."

"It's a different time to be older now," she added. "I'm sitting here basically wearing the same dress my daughter would wear. I've got the same hair my daughter would wear. We can get away with that stuff."

She also said that she'd be very interested to reprise her role if asked.

"If they were making it and they were asking, I'd be interested," she said.
