Rick Moranis Explains Ghostbusters Reboot Snub

It looks like there is at least there is one star from the original Ghostbusters that won’t be appearing in next year’s reboot.

Following the announcements that Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts will all appear in some fashion – though not under their original guises – many wondered if Louis Tully himself, Rick Moranis, would also sign up.

However, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids actor has revealed he turned down a role;

“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?”

Moranis last appeared in a live-action movie in 1997, taking a break from acting to care for his two daughters following the death of his wife, leading to the public perception that he has retired. However, Moranis rejected that perception, saying he is just selective of any potential roles.

“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.”

Ghostbusters stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Chris Hemsworth, and is released on 15 July 2016.
