Moranis is very mercurial, and he enjoys retirement very much. I have no doubt that everyone would like him to return, but I doubt he will unless the script knocks his socks off.
Apparently his wife died, and he's focusing his time with his kids.
Not "apparently" -- his wife passed away in 1991 from liver cancer, and he took what was intended to be a hiatus from acting for a while to raise his children, who were very young at the time (although they're grown, now). Eventually, he realized that he didn't miss making movies all that much, and that hiatus became retirement. He had made his money in the '80s and early '90s, and he had spent it wisely, so he didn't need to work. Good for him.
Indeed. It's a shame many other comedic actors from his era didn't take a similar route. (Not the wife dying thing, but the "made my money and I don't need to work" thing.)
For me, and for many of us, the future is now in the past.
