[ # ] Rick Moranis comes out of retirement
February 12th, 2020 under Josh Gad


Back in 1997, Rick Moranis retired from acting to raise his two children, even though he was in some of my favorite movies. You know because it is all about me.

Anyways, Deadline revealed today that he is taking on his first scripted on-camera role since then. He will be reprising his role as Wayne Szalinski in the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids sequel Shrunk. The last movie he did was Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.

The Disney movie will be centered around Josh Gad, who is playing his shrunken son all grown up. No word how they will handle the loss of Marcia Strassman, who played the mom in the first two movies, but not the third. The actress passed away in 2014.

Moranis has done some voiceover work and guest appearances, like on The Goldbergs, since he stayed away from the limelight. Maybe now that he is going to get the yummy taste of acting again, he will finally consider doing Space Balls 3: The Search for 2.

UPDATE: SlashFilm says that is mostly like the plit for Shrunk, “Aware that the family ties have loosened over time but seemingly afraid to confront anyone directly. He has been tinkering alone in his attic for decades, dealing with the grief of losing his wife. When we first meet him, he has accidentally shrunk himself and is flying around on a shrunken drone — seemingly lost in a continuous of tinkering and experimenting that often puts himself and his family in jeopardy. He later reveals he shut himself away to try and invent a solution to help shrink Diane’s cancer but found it hard to cope when he ran out of time. His guilt and shame is palpable. Through the crisis of the kids getting shrunk, the truth emerges and the bonds begin to redevelop between him and his kids.”

How screwed up is that they are doing that storyline when both his real and movie wives died from cancer? That and its sounds like an upbeat movie will be depressing. I am not even sure if Moranis is enough for me to go see it now.
