The 1989 American comic science fiction film 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids' enjoys the status of a classic film having fans across the globe. This Joe Johnston film revolved around the life of an inventor who accidentally shrinks his own and his next-door neighbor's children to miniature versions of themselves with his electromagnetic shrinking machine. If you are also a fan then we have good news for you as, after a long long time, the film is getting another sequel.

Yes! That's right, Honey, I Shrunk The Kids is set to get its fourth sequel after 23 years titled 'Shrunk'. The film will star Rick Moranis in his first live-action film since 1997 (Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves). Moranis had a run of hits throughout the '80s and '90s, starring in films like 'Parenthood', 'Spaceballs', 'Little Shop of Horrors', and the 'Ghostbusters' franchise. He took a two-decade break from movies to raise his children and do voice work.

The actor stepped away from film and TV roles after his wife died. Moranis' last theatrical release was the 2003 'Brother Bear'. The film will also star Josh Gad. He, who will reportedly play the son of Moranis' character, tweeted:

Shrunk will be produced by Disney and Jor Johnston will return to direct. The original film became a sleeper blockbuster. It grossed $222 million worldwide against a budget of $18 million and became the highest-grossing live-action Disney film ever, a record it held for five years. Its success spawned a franchise including two sequels 'Honey, I Blew Up the Kid' and 'Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves', a television series and theme-park attractions.
