Honey, I Shrunk The Kids Remake Rumored
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids is an aggressively underrated little gem, one of those great, live-action, Disney family comedies which have basically vanished in the face of the new millennium. These movies werenít always horrible travesties like Tooth Fairy, for a time Disney seemed to put almost as much effort into them as they did their animated films. Now both have fallen into disrepair. If nothing else Honey, I Shrunk the Kids is proof that the world deserved a lot more Rick Moranis than it got. Which is why itís such a horrible idea to remake it.
But remake it we must, because remakes and retreads are really all we have anymore. A site called What Is Playing claims thatís exactly whatís happening. They get their information one of the crew members who worked on the 1989 original. 1989? Itís hard to believe itís been that long.
Their source, who could be anything from a disgruntled caterer to a director with an axe to grind, claims itís definitely not a sequel because ďMr. Moranis has retired.Ē Thatís true, Rick is pretty disinterested in Hollywood these days. He hasnít showed up in a movie since the mid-90s, though he does provide a voice in Disneyís ignored 2003 animated movie Brother Bear. If youíve heard him interviewed recently, youíve heard a guy who so doesnít care about the entertainment industry. Honey, I Shrunk The Kids reboot? Forget it, theyíll have a hard time even getting him to show up for Ghostbusters 3.
