With the upcoming arrival of “Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” questions about whether Rick Moranis has a cameo or not started to emerge.
The highly anticipated sequel of Ghostbusters franchise will arrive this year. Like many other films, it faced multiple postponements due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Despite that, fans of the classic supernatural comedy patiently wait, especially since the original stars will be back on the new film.
The pioneers who will join the Ghostbusters Afterlife cast include Bill Murray, Annie Potts, Sigourney Weaver, and Dan Aykroyd.

Meanwhile, Murray confirmed that the sequel would find a way to pay tribute to Harold Ramis, who died in 2014 at the age of 69.
Only Moranis’ name was never mentioned in any Ghostbusters: Afterlife update among these notable stars.
But new comments from Ernie Hudson seemingly hinted that the actor might appear on one of its scenes.
During his recent interview with Living Life Fearless, Hudson dropped a vague but interesting answer when asked whether Moranis will be part of the new film.
“I think the studios probably want to hold that one,” he said. “I love Rick. But yeah, I’ll let them share that.”
They will finally find the answer soon as the Ghostbusters: Afterlife release date is scheduled for Nov. 11, 2021.
Aside from the returnees, A-list stars will join the star-studded sequel.
Paul Rudd (Mr. Grooberson), Carrie Coon (Callie), Finn Wolfhard, and McKenna Grace will star in the film, among others.
Moranis’ Movies Over the Years
It is worth noting that the 67-year-old actor already left Hollywood two decades ago.
In 2015, he told The Hollywood Reporter that he wanted to focus on raising his two kids with his wife, Ann, after she died.
“But I’m interested in anything that I would find interesting. I still get the occasional query about a film or television role … and as soon as one comes along that piques my interest, I’ll probably do it.”
He recently came up again to return in the Disney+ reboot of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, titled Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.
Aside from Ghostbusters and Shrunk franchises, he also keeps award-winning movies and shows under his belt. Before he took a break, he starred in Spaceballs, Little Shop of Horrors, Strange Brew, Little Giants, and The Flintstones.
Rick Moranis also retook the spotlight when he worked with Ryan Reynolds in a commercial for Mint Mobile.
