It could be due to the fact that I find today’s so-called “comic superstars” only mildly funny or maybe it’s just because I’ve seen “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” about twenty-times in the past fortnight, but I’m missing Rick Moranis. I really am. This guy was a part of my youth – your youth… Robert Oliveri’s youth. More so, he was brilliant – from “SC TV” to “Ghostbusters”, “Club Paradise”, “My Blue Heaven”, “Parenthood” and, of course, “Honey, I Shrunk The Kids”, it was one rib-tickling performance after another from cinema’s favourite geek.
In 1996, just shortly after the release of “Big Bully” (the woeful laffer he made with Tom Arnold), Moranis retired from acting. It wasn’t because he was tired of it, but rather because he’d lost his wife to cancer and needed to be there for his kids more.
Of course, the kids are all grown up now, so should he choose to, Moranis could potentially return to film. Bloody Disgusting reported today that the Canadian comic is eyeing a big screen comeback in “Ghostbusters 3″, reprising his role as Louis Tully.
It had been said previously that Moranis wouldn’t be back for “Ghostbusters 3″, so something has obviously changed – maybe he’s having trouble paying one of his kid’s college tuition? Or maybe he just wants to cuddle up to Sigourney Weaver again? Whatever the case, Moranis has reportedly agreed to do the film (should it happen – still not convinced it’s inching forward myself).
Meantime, Bloody Disgusting reports that one of the main characters in the film – not surprisingly – will be ‘Oscar’, Dana Barron’s son – but did you know that Peter Venkman (Bill Murray) is the guy’s dad? We’ve always suspected that, but it’s never been confirmed. Apparently Oscar will inherit his father’s business in the new film.
