Rick Moranis Officially Returning with "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" Sequel

Rick Moranis is returning to the big screen.

According to Deadline.com, Moranis has officially signed on to revive his famous character Wayne Szalinski for a Honey, I Shrunk the Kids sequel tentatively called Shrunk.

The director of the original 1989 film will also be back to direct the upcoming sequel. Two direct sequels came out following the success of the original, 1992's Honey, I Blew Up the Kids and the 1997 direct-to-video release, Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.

Moranis famously quit acting in '97, saying "I'm a single parent and I just found that it was too difficult to manage to raise my kids and to do the traveling involved in making movies. So I took a little bit of a break. And the little bit of a break turned into a longer break, and then I found that I really didn't miss it."

He did however lend his voice to a few films between 1997 and now, most notably Brother Bear in 2003.

Moranis is also know for his roles in Strange Brew, Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2, Spaceballs, and Little Giants.
