One of the classic stars of Ghostbusters explained why he chose not to return for the reboot.
The classic horror comedy is getting a trilogy starring Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy. Some memorable actors are also expected to make appearances, including Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray. But one actor who fans should not keep an eye out for is Rick Moranis, known for playing Louis in the iconic film.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter posted on Wednesday, Moranis opened up on why he set this one out.
"I hope it's great," he said. "But it just makes no sense to me. Why would I do just one day of shooting on something I did 30 years ago?"
The actor also explained how people react when they see him considering that he's been fairly absent from the movie spotlight. Even though he's done some animation and voice work here and there, his reason for shying away from acting was to focus on his kids.
"People are very nice when they see me," Moranis said. "They ask me, 'How come they don't make movies like they used to?' We were governed by a certain kind of taste at that time, and there were places we wouldn't go with language and bodily fluids and functions. I think that's what they're nostalgic for."
The Ghostbusters reboot is expected to hit theaters on July 15, 2016.
