Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd Tease New ’Back To The Future‘ Project

Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd

“Wait a minute. Wait a minute Doc, are you telling me…we might be going back to the future again?” Less than a month after their heartwarming reunion at the New York Comic Con, Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd have fans talking once more; this time, about a new Back to the Future project.

On November 3, 2022, Lloyd tweeted a cryptic message: “I can’t say yet, but the future holds something very special for you…stay tuned!” The next day, Lloyd continued to fuel rumors by tweeting, “Great Scott. Stay tuned!” Lloyd’s third tweet shares a photo of him alongside BTTF co-star Fox with the caption, “If my calculations are correct, when this news hits 88mph…you’re gonna see some serious sh*t (on Instagram).” It seems Lloyd was referencing a mysterious BTTF-themed video both he and Fox posted to their Instagram stories. Lloyd later tweeted the video with a link to what seems to be a Back to the Future-related online store.

Even with all the secrecy, Lloyd was quick to quell rumors of a BTTF remake. One fan replied to his tweet with, “Please please don’t say you’re remaking BTTF,” to which Lloyd simply responded, “We are not.” If a remake of the 80s classic isn’t in store, then what is? The two stars are not yet revealing.

To add fuel to the rumors fire, both stars posted that same photo of the two of them on Instagram. Fox’s was captioned, “Doc and I are up to something heavy… @mrchristopherlloyd should we spill it?” Then, Lloyd seemed to respond with his post, captioned, “Wait, don't say anything yet @realmikejfox . We’ve still got time.” The comments are full of fans reacting to what this new project could be. Some are pleading for the stars to give fans a clue, while others are bemoaning a potential reboot.

What is for certain is that the link both actors shared allows for fans to sign up for any updates coming soon. After inputting their email and phone number, they’ll receive the vague text message, “Great Scott! You made it just in time. We'll let you know when the clock strikes… Stay ready.”

As many BTTF fans know, time and clocks are incredibly important motifs of the franchise. In particular, the clock on the Hill Valley Courthouse is significant. Notably in the first film, when the clock struck 10:04pm on November 12, 1955, the courthouse was struck with lightning, stopping its clock as well as finally sending Marty McFly back to 1985. On the mysterious new BTTF website, the background is filled with clocks. At first glance, it might seem to just be a replica of the famed frozen clock as seen in the franchise. Upon further inspection though, the clock reads around 10:08—not 10:04.

There’s no news yet on what this exciting new development to Back to the Future is, but keep your eye on the clock, and scroll below to see the posts that sparked the rumors.

Actor Christopher Lloyd sparked rumors online of a new Back to the Future project when he tweeted a series of cryptic messages.

Soon after, he and fellow BTTF co-star Michael J. Fox shared a vague BTTF-themed video. Lloyd later re-shared the video on Twitter, along with a link to a new website.

Even with all the secrecy, Lloyd was quick to quell rumors of a BTTF remake.

Both stars have yet to reveal what this exciting new addition to the classic 80s franchise is, but they are using Instagram to add fuel to the rumor fire.
