“To say that it was a dream to set up a time to see the #RickMoranis on the big screen, is the understatement of the decade. However, to say that I get a seat frame from him and not be able to play in one of his most iconic roles, is the understatement of the Century. Welcome back, hero! #Whole,” Gad, 38, wrote the following in response to a Term in the article.

Per Deadline, the film’s original director, Joe Johnston, is back at the helm of the next installment.

In 1997, Moranis stepped away from the spotlight. The actor was hugely popular after a string of box office successes such as “Ghostbusters,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” “Spaceballs,” and “The Flintstones” in the early ’80’s and ’90’s, but with the stars moved back to Hollywood after a family tragedy.

I still get the occasional question about a movie or a tv role, and, as soon as one comes along that my interest was piqued as well.”
