Rick Moranis Has Joined the New 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids' Movie
Reboot/sequel 'Shrunk' will also star Josh Gad
Published Feb 12, 2020Last May, we learned that Disney's Honey, I Shrunk the Kids would be getting revived as a new "legecyequel" film dubbed Shrunk, and it's now been reported that original star Rick Moranis will be involved in the project.
Deadline has confirmed Moranis's involvement in Shrunk, which also features original director Joe Johnston and Josh Gad. As previously reported, Gad is set to star in the new film as the son of Moranis's character, Wayne Szalinski.
Moranis starred in the 1989 original as scientist Szalinski, whose children are shrunk down to microscopic size after stumbling upon his electromagnetic shrinking machine in their home. The Canadian also starred in 1992 sequel Honey, I Blew Up the Kid and 1997's Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.
Shrunk would mark Moranis's first theatrical appearance since taking a hiatus from on-screen roles in 1997. He most recently appeared as himself in 2018 SCTV reunion special, An Afternoon with SCTV.
Deadline also notes that David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing Shrunk, while Todd Rosenberg will write the screenplay.
