A Vanity Fair report on Ghostbusters: Afterlife confirms Rick Moranis will not return for the upcoming sequel.
One of the many colorful characters to appear in the first Ghostbusters film was Louis Tully, a socially-inept accountant portrayed by Rick Moranis who vied for the attention of Sigourney Weaver’s Dana Barrett. Five years later, Rick Moranis reprised his role as Louis Tully in the less well-received Ghostbusters II.
Now, over 30 years after the last installment of the original series was released in theaters, director Jason Reitman will continue the Ghostbusters story with a sequel subtitled Afterlife that will include many returning veterans from the first two entries. Unfortunately, the following portion of Vanity Fair’s report on Ghostbusters: Afterlife confirms that Rick Moranis will not be returning to portray Louis Tully:
“Rick Moranis, who was accountant Louis Tully in the original, has largely withdrawn from performing over the past 20 years and did not return.
Rick Moranis’ absence from Ghostbusters: Afterlife may be disappointing, but is likely expected. After his wife died of cancer in 1991, Rick Moranis began slowly moving away from public life to focus his time on being a full-time father. Since 1997, Rick Moranis has not appeared in any live-action films, although he has provided his voice to some animated projects and participated in TV specials.
Here is the official synopsis for Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife:
When a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.
Directed by Jason Reitman from a script he co-wrote with Gil Kena, Ghostbusters: Afterlife stars Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, Paul Rudd, Celeste O’Connor, Logan Kim, Bokeem Woodbine, Oliver Cooper, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife is scheduled to be released in theaters on July 10, 2020.
