Legendary attempting to make Toxic Avenger reboot

Recommended Posts



As announced in an official release from Legendary, the studio will be attempting to bring one of Troma's most successful properties equally into the mainstream. The Toxic Avenger tells the story of Melvin Ferd, a 98-pound janitor who, after falling into a drum of toxic waste, is transformed into a deformed and hulking beast. Adopting the name Toxic Avenger (or Toxie for short) Melvin uses his new-found strength for good, choosing to combat crime in his neighborhood. Having acquired the rights to the franchise, Legendary is already moving forward with production. As of yet, there is no word on who will write and/or direct the film, but both Kaufman and co-founder Michael Herz will serve as producers. Alex Garcia and Jay Ashenfelter will oversee for Legendary.
