Deadline is reporting that not only is Disney moving forward with a theatrical sequel to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, but Rick Moranis will return as scientist Wayne “I keep a shrink ray in my attic” Szalinski.
The film, titled Shrink, will also see Joe Johnson return as director, and will predominantly focus on Szalinski’s son, Adam, played by Josh Gad, who coincidentally also ends up accidentally shrinking his kids. They should really be more careful, huh?
News first hit of an upcoming Honey, I Shrunk the Kids reboot around this time last year, courtesy /Film. As they reported at the time:
“The plan is for the movie to be set about three decades after the 1989 original, with Gad set to play the grown-up version of scientist and inventor Wayne Szalinski’s son, Nick Szalinski. The new movie, which will be titled Shrunk, will be a reboot of the original film, but positioned as a ‘legecyequel,’ which means it will exist in the same world and continue the overall storyline.”
Oh, no. Is it Nick, or Adam? Will Max Headroom show up? Will any giant tiki statues be involved? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
