Honey I Shrunk the Kids: Original Director Joe Johnston in Talks to Return for Disney+ Reboot

Honey I Shrunk the Kids: Original director Joe Johnston in talks to return for Disney+ reboot

According to Variety, Joe Johnston, who was the director of the 1989 classic sci-fi comedy Honey I Shrunk the Kids, is reportedly in talks to helm Disney+‘s forthcoming reboot which will be led by Frozen star Josh Gad as the son of Rick Moranis’ character Wayne Szalinski. The first film was Johnston’s feature directorial debut, who went on to direct other classic 90s’ films such as 1995’s Jumanji starring Robin Williams and Jake Gyllenhaal’s 1999 drama October Sky. His other film credits include Jurassic Park II, Captain America: The First Avenger and The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.

The Honey, I Shrunk the Kids reboot, which will be set three decades after the original, will focus on Nick Szalinski, Wayne’s son who was enlargened in the second film, as he repeats the problems of his father’s past and accidentally shrinks his kids and must find a way to fix the problem. Gad will take on the role.

The original, which hit theaters in the summer of ’89, starred Rick Moranis (Ghostbusters) as the brilliant but flawed inventor and scientist Wayne Szalinski as he is working on a new ray gun that can shrink down any object to minuscule proportions, but after failing numerous times is ready to give up on the project. That is until a freak accident shrinks down both his two kids, Amy and Nick, and his neighbor’s sons Russ and Ron and must find a way to fix it when they get lost in their backyard that is like a wild jungle filled with danger.

Receiving very positive reviews from critics and held the record for the highest-grossing live-action Disney film ever for five years with over $222 million at the global box office. The film spawned one theatrical sequel, Honey, I Blew Up the Kid and one direct-to-video sequel Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves, both of which earned markedly lower reviews than their predecessor.

Though Disney has been developing a number of live-action remakes of their past projects for their upcoming streaming service, Disney+, Slash Film reports that Shrunk will actually be developed for a theatrical release. This marks prime marketing potential for the larger-than-ever studio as they bring back one of their biggest-selling stars in a prime position, Gad voices the fan-favorite Olaf the Snowman in the Frozen franchise, portrayed LeFou in the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast and will star as Mulch Diggums in the upcoming Artemis Fowl adaptation.

A rapper from Miami is accused of sucker-punching a 50-year-old man in front of his young son during a confrontation at a family arcade in South Florida.

Courtney Paul Wilson, whose stage name is ABGM Spitta, was arrested Thursday on a charge of aggravated battery causing bodily harm, according to Broward County Jail records.

Surveillance video captured Wilson punching the man on Oct. 13 at Off the Wall, a trampoline park and arcade in Davie. The man fell to the ground and was unconscious for a short time, investigators said. He told investigators Wilson accused him of taking his game card, which had been left in a machine, and putting it in his pocket.

Davie police posted Wilson's picture on social media on Wednesday after investigators said they identified him as the person in the video. In an effort to seek the public's help in locating Wilson, police pointed to an “official music video” posted on YouTube of Wilson performing a song called “Ambitions of a THUG.”

The South Florida SunSentinel reports Wilson has a prolific presence on Instagram, YouTube, Spotify and online music sites. Police told the newspaper he is also known as PaperChasin Spitta and Alley Boy.

Ian Somerhalder says he lost virginity at age 13

Ian Somerhalder says he lost virginity at age 13

Ian Somerhalder lost his virginity at a surprisingly early age.

In a new interview, the former “Vampire Diaries” star revealed he first had intercourse with a girl at age 13.

NIKKI REED SAYS IAN SOMERHALDER 'THREW OUT ALL MY BIRTH CONTROL PILLS'

“[I was] 13. It was fun,” Somerhalder, 40, said on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show, “Radio Andy.” “When you’re 13 and you’re a boy, you know, or a girl, boys are pretty on it.”

Somerhalder noted that the girl he slept with was 16 at the time. The actor also spoke on how spying on older brother Robert prepared him for his big moment.

"He taught me a lot. And he was quite a Casanova," Somerhalder said. "He used to have girls in his bedroom all the time and what I did was, I went into the bottom corner of his window and I pinched the Venetian blinds — I pinched the blinds down so I’d have a clear view — and then when he'd have girls over... I’d go outside and I would watch and I learned a lot."

He continued, stating, “We do what we have to do. This was the live action organic version [of Internet porn].” “Now kids are watching all this s—t on the Internet and it’s destroying society.”

Eddie Murphy certainly has his hands full with 10 kids — but the comedian said on Thursday that he wouldn't have it any other way.

The actor, 58, visited "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and opened up about what it's like to be a parent to 10 children, who range in age from 1 to 30 years old.

Murphy shared he's received mixed reviews from both men and women. He stressed the feedback is "funny."

"Men kind of look at me like, 'He's crazy. How much did that s--t cost?'' And women, it's kind of like, something sexy about it, I think. 'Eddie Murphy must be doing this thing. Eddie Murphy be getting it in,'" he told DeGeneres via Us Weekly.

The actor welcomed his 10th child — a baby boy named Max Charles - with his fiancee, Paige Butcher, 40, last December. The couple also share a 2-year-old daughter, Izzy.

"I like it. I'm happy with it," he told DeGeneres.

Last year, the comedian's eldest daughter, Bria, 30, shared a Christmas photo on her Instagram with Murphy and all of his kids. In addition to his two children with Butcher, he also shares a son, Eric, 30, with Paulette McNeely, five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy, a son with Tamara Hood and a daughter with former Spice Girl Mel B.
