Rick Moranis turns down new Ghostbusters movie!

Following news of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver all set to cameo in Sony’s upcoming Ghostbusters reinvention eyes fell on Rick Moranis – who exclusively revealed to The Hollywood Reported that he said no:

“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  took an 18-year hiatus from acting to raise his two children following the death of his wife, Ann, from breast cancer in 1997. He has provided voice-over work for some animated films, but has not appeared onscreen since 1997, leading to public perception that he had retired from acting but it would seem that is not the case:

“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.”

Still no Annie Potts!
