Josh Gad May Star in a Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Reboot/Sequel

Josh Gad May Star in a Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Reboot/Sequel On a list of already great ideas that deserve a fresh reimagining, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids has to be near the top. And while rumors of a new sequel or reboot have been circling for a while, it seems the idea may have just blown up in size. Slashfilm is reporting that Josh Gad may star in a new version of the film, simply called Shrunk. It would be both a sequel and reboot to the original series, with Gad potentially playing Nick Szalinski, the now grown-up son of Rick Moranis’ character, Wayne Szalinski. Nick would, of course, make the same mistake as his father, shrinking his kids. Disney did not provide a comment.
