Last year it was announced that The Toxic Avenger will be remade, with Peter Dinklage starring in, and Lloyd Kaufman (head honcho at Troma) revealed this to Dread Central:
“[Writer and director] Macon Blair knows Troma better than I do. He’s seen everything. He’s seen the cartoon, he’s seen the Halloween special, he’s seen everything. And he loves our movies like Troma’s War and Terror Firmer. I’ve read the script and it’s better than the original and I leave it to him. If I’m called upon, I’d be happy to jump in. I learned on the musical to leave the creative to the creative. I learned to let them ask so if they want me, I’m there.”
Hopefully, the new film is just as schlocky as the original.
No release date has been announced yet.
