Rick Moranis Reveals He ISN'T Retired & Explains Why He Turned Down A Cameo In The Ghostbusters Reboot!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Don't believe everything you read on Wikipedia!

Well, for those of you who thought Rick Moranis had stopped making movies for good, think again!

The actor took an 18-year hiatus after his wife, Ann, passed away from breast cancer in 1997. He left the industry to focus his time and energy on raising his two kids.

But he insists that he didn't retire way back then — like his Wikipedia page had said — because now that his children have become adults, he's ready to get back in the game, saying:

"I took a break, which turned into a longer break. But I'm interested in anything that I would find interesting. I still get the occasional query about a film or television role and as soon as one comes along that piques my interest, I'll probably do it. [But Ghostbusters] didn't appeal to me."

The 62-year-old, who had starred in the first two Ghostbusters flicks back in the '80s, admitted that he turned down a cameo spot in Paul Feig's female-led reboot. Now, he's explaining why:

"I wish them well I hope it's terrific. But it just makes no sense to me. Why would I do just one day of shooting on something I did 30 years ago?"

Even though he thoroughly enjoyed acting, and hopes to get back into it eventually, the Canadian entertainer says he wouldn't trade his time off for anything:

Dan Aykroyd Re-Writing Ghostbusters 3 Script

Filed under: Film FlickersBill Murray

dan aykroyd rewriting ghostbusters 3 script while promoting crystal head vodka

Hooray for another Ghostbusters 3 update! Good to see the project staying alive. If we could only get an Arrested Development update, then we'd be golden!

As far as Ghostbusters 3 news is concerned, the latest update is that Dan Aykroyd is working on a new draft of the script, while he travels around the U.S. and promotes his Crystal Head Vodka from his RV.

Good thing Aykroyd is getting going on a new draft of the script, because Bill Murray was not a fan of the previous draft.

Here's what Aykroyd had to say about it:

"I think he was concerned that the writing on Ghostbusters 3 by these guys would not be up to standard, but I can tell you firsthand, I'm working on the script now and those two - Stupnitsky and Eisenberg, wrote Bill the comic role of a lifetime, and the new Ghostbusters and the old are all well represented in it…we have a strong first draft that Harold [Ramis] and I will take back, and I'm very excited about working on it."

More from Aykroyd on the new movie:

"Look, Hollywood is in love with any kind of nostalgia that can prove itself to be commercial. But it has to evolve. Now [in Ghostbusters 3] my character's eyesight is shot, I got a bad knee, a bad hip-I can't drive that caddy anymore or lift that Psychotron Accelerator anymore, it's too heavy. We need young legs, new minds-new Ghostbusters; so I'm in essence passing the torch to the new regime, and you know what? That's totally okay with me."

Keep going with that script, Dan! If selling alien-skull-shaped bottles of vodka gives you ample time to write, then keep selling those bottles and keep writing!

And bring back Rick Moranis, if you can. We'd love to see his triumphant return!

Are U excited for crystal head vodka the new Ghostbusters movie?

Major Ghostbusters 3 Updates!

Filed under: Film Flickers


Honey, I’m Coming Out of Retirement!

That’s right, folks. Sources are saying that Rick Moranis will come out of retirement to reprise his role in the third Ghostbusters film!

We can only hope that this will influence Moranis to stay out of retirement. You know you’d love to see him star in Honey I Shrunk The Groom, where he accidentally shrinks his son on his wedding day, and must get him to the altar in time for the ceremony! And yes, it MUST be in 3-D.

The other big Ghostbusters story update is that Oscar, Sigourney Weaver’s child from Ghostbusters 2, will join the team in this film, AND it will be revealed that Oscar is the lovechild of Weaver and Bill Murray’s characters! Scan-da-lous!

No word yet on who will play their son. Perhaps they can bring on Zombieland star Jesse Eisenberg. He’s clearly capable of killing netherworldly creatures, and he’s just awkward enough to be a solid Ghostbuster.

More than anything, we hope the Rick Moranis news comes to fruition. We’d really love to see him on the big screen again!

Honey, I Shrunk The Kids Remake?

Filed under: Film Flickers



We liked the original, but it's so rare that a remake can do a film justice!

Supposedly a remake is in the works of the 1989 Disney live-action film Honey, I Shrunk The Kids. It wouldn't be another sequel since Rick Moranis isn't into Hollywood much these days, but rather a reinterpretation of the original movie.

We don't think this is the greatest idea, what do U think?
