The Toxic Avenger is returning to our screens! Wait, what?
Yup, it seems that Sausage Party co-director Conrad Vernon will be directing The Toxic Avenger remake based on the original 1984 Troma feature film.
Apparently this version will be “more grounded and mainstream” and will be written by The Grackle and Archer’s Mike Arnold and Chris Poole.
Toxic Avenger is a re-imagining of Troma’s cult classic, which tells the story of a New Jersey teenager whose accidental tumble into a vat of toxic waste turns him into a mutant superhero. The disruption evident in the raucous R-rated sleeper hit Sausage Party will propel a new franchise play here.
