Christopher Lloyd to join William Shatner in comedy Senior Moment

Who doesn't love BACK TO THE FUTURE? While Michael J. Fox is fun, and the script tight, it's really Christopher Lloyd's eccentric performance that elevates the film to classic. And, honestly, he's pretty much good in everything - stealing scenes as the stoner in TAXI and even showing real pathos for a nothing villain role in SANTA BUDDIES (a movie, yes, I saw). So I'm always curious to hear what he's doing next.

And apparently Doc Brown is meeting up with Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner, in the new buddy-comedy Senior Moment. And here's the weird synopsis, according to Variety:

Shatner plays a retired Top Gun Navy pilot who used to test aircraft for NASA. After speeding around town in his vintage convertible hot rod with his best friend (played by Lloyd) in tow, he gets caught in a major crackdown to get dangerous senior drivers off the road, resulting in his car being impounded and his license revoked.

I say weird, because I'm not sure what the conflict is. Is it fighting against the revoking of his license? Is it the road trip itself? And what's him working for NASA got to do with anything? The mind boggles.

Anyway, what do you Schmoes think? You down to see these two sci-fi legends together? Sound off below!

Extra Tidbit: Obviously Doc Brown is his best role, but I still really liked him as Professor Plum in the CLUE movie.
