‘The Toxic Avenger’ remake in works

Published on :

Los Angeles, Dec 11 (IANS) A remake of the 1984 superhero comedy “The Toxic Avenger” is in the works.

Legendary Entertainment is developing it after acquiring the feature film rights, reported variety.com.

Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz of Troma Entertainment, who produced the original comedy, will serve as producers.

The original film was set in the fictional town of Tromaville, New Jersey, and centered on a mild-mannered janitor at a health club who is chased out a second story window by bullies and lands in a drum of toxic waste.

The chemicals cause him to transform into the Toxic Avenger, who has superhuman size and strength and stands up to bullies and corruption.

“The Toxic Avenger” became successful after a long run as a midnight movie in New York, leading to the sequels “The Toxic Avenger Part II”, “The Toxic Avenger Part III: The Last Temptation of Toxie” and “Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV”.

The property also became a stage musical production, a children’s cartoon TV series and a Marvel comic.
