Michael J. Fox thinks 'Back to the Future' should be remade, starring a female Marty McFly.

The 61-year-old star played the character in the sci-fi comedy trilogy and is hoping a female star will take on the lead character when the franchise returns to the big screen. Michael told 'Entertainment Tonight': "I actually had a thought that if they do the film again, they should do it with a girl as Marty." It's been nearly four decades since Michael first starred in the original 1985 film and he's confident another Back to the Future movie will be made as the series "resonates with people on every level." . The actor, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991, added: "There's something about it that appeals to people on all levels. I just have a feeling it's going to come back."

Michael revealed he's still impressed by the passion fans have for the films, which were released between 1985 and 1990. "What's most amazing about 'Back to the Future' is that - and it has nothing to do with me - it has this life. People not only like it and remember it, they celebrate it and let themselves be mine Tattooing her face on her leg, and that's crazy, but in a good way," Fox said.

'Back to the Future' screenwriter Bob Gale had ruled out the possibility of a fourth film in 2020. So the future will tell if and in what form a new Back to the Future flick will come.
