New Jersey's toxic superhero is headed to Hollywood.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Legendary Entertainment has acquired the rights to to The Toxic Avenger and a remake/reboot of the classic Troma film is currently in the works.
Rleased in 1984, the original film spawned three sequels and an animated series, titled "Toxic Crusaders."
“Tromaville has a monstrous new hero. The Toxic Avenger is born when meek mop boy Melvin falls into a vat of toxic waste. Now evildoers will have a lot to lose.”
Troma founders Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz are set to produce the new film project alongside Legendary’s Alex Garcia and Jay Ashenfelter.
