Macon Blair To Write & Direct The Toxic Avenger Reboot

The Toxic Avenger

Last year, legendary required the rights to ‘The Toxic Avenger’ the Troma splatter films, and quickly became cult classics spawning several sequels. and now “Macon Blair” (Green Room)  is set to write and direct the reboot.

Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, who directed the original 1984 movie and are the founders of Troma, are onboard to produce the reboot. The Toxic Avenger told the story of Melvin Ferd, a stereotypical 98-lb nerd who fell into a vat of toxic waste after being tormented by bullies and was transformed into the Toxic Avenger, a hideously disfigured creature with superhuman size and strength who ruthlessly fights crime.

There have been several attempts of rebooting the movie, but never happened. One even had Arnold playing Toxi.

How do you feel about this reboot?
