Possible "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" Reboot Starring Josh Gad Coming

Earlier this year Josh Gad pitched a “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” reboot idea to Disney and the studio jumped on board with the idea! The reboot will be called “Shrunk” with Josh Gad in talks to star and “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” director Joe Johnston in negotiations to helm the project.

In the original film, Rick Moranis plays Wayne Szalinski, a scientist and father who accidentally shrinks his teenage son and daughter, along with the two brothers from next door, to just a quarter of an inch in size. When the kids are thrown out with the trash, they must travel through their backyard to return home while fending off insects, lawnmowers and other obstacles.

In “Shrunk”, Gad will play Wayne’s grown-up son, who follows in his father’s footsteps by not only becoming a scientist but also accidentally shrinking his own children.

Disney met with other directors but felt Johnston was a perfect fit for this project. David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing and Todd Rosenberg is penning the script.

The Studio toyed with the idea of debuting the film on Disney+ but Rosenberg’s most recent draft received great enthusiasm from execs. The plan is now to release the film to theaters. The development is still in early stages and the project hasn’t actually been given the green light yet.

Stay tuned for more information about this upcoming reboot!
