The “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” remake may get a dose of flavour from the original.
Joe Johnston, who directed the first film, is in talks to direct the remake starring “Frozen” actor Josh Gad. The news was first reported by Entertainment Weekly.
The film has yet to officially be greenlit. The working title is “Shrunk” and it was actually brought forward to Disney by Gad himself. If it all works out, Disney is reportedly planning to roll it out as a theatrical release.
“Shrunk” would star Gad as Wayne’s grown-up son, Nick. Just like his dad, Nick becomes a scientist and shrinks his kids.
