“Toxic Avenger” Reboot Is In The Works With Macon Blair As Writer and Director

Grab your tutu and mop and chug some radioactive waste, as Troma Films cult-classic “The Toxic Avenger” is gearing up for a reboot. This isn’t just in the early phases of being discussed, they already have a writer and director behind it.

According to a report from Variety earlier today, film studio Legendary scooped up the feature film rights at the end of 2018 to make their own version of the 1984 uber-violent horror-comedy. The original movie spawned three sequels and a cartoon series “Toxic Crusaders”, as well as becoming a musical in recent years.

Macon Blair will be writing and directing the film, who is an actor turned director that has had quite a coming out party. His most recent picture, “I Don’t Feel At Home in This World Anymore”, won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz of Troma Entertainment will serve as producers with Alex Garcia and Jay Ashenfelter overseeing for Legendary.

No other info about the movie has been released yet. My question is how much of the signature Troma gore can they include a widely-released movie? Times have changed since when Troma first released the film, and much of what they do, while still incredibly disgusting, is easier to see in R-rated flicks. I’m sure the movie will still be very gross, I just wonder how gross they could potentially make it – and is there an audience for that?

Back in February, we saw a new Toxie figure made by Super7 at Toy Fair 2019, based on his original “Toxic Crusaders” action figure. If this movie keeps pushing forward, expect that figure to become a highly sought after collectible by the time it hits theaters.
