80’s Cult Classic The Toxic Avenger Getting A Reboot
Actor Macon Blair (Blue Ruin, Green Room) has been hired by Legendary Pictures to direct their reboot of the 80’s cult classic The Toxic Avenger.
This is apparently a high priority project for Legendary.
The original film told the story of a bullied janitor who becomes a mutant superhero after falling into a vat of toxic waste and transforms into a radioactive hero. After the transformation, he stands up to bullies and corruption with irreverent zeal.
The film has become a successful cult movie, but can this grotesque mutant hero to make a successful comeback?
