"Hot Tub Time Machine" Director to Remake "The Toxic Avenger"

Posted: November 6th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Hot Tub Time Machine" Director to Remake "The Toxic Avenger"Submit Comment
Deadline is reporting that "Hot Tub Time Machine" director Steve Pink will helm the remake of "The Toxic Avenger," based on the 1984 film, its four sequels and an animated TV series and comic books.

In the original, the protagonist is a mop-wielding simpleton named Melvin, whose trusting ways made him easy prey for gym thugs who tossed him into toxic waste. The transformation into Toxie didn't help his complexion, but gave him rippling muscles to wreak havoc on New Jersey polluters. The byproduct was that despite his misshapen appearance, the girls finally like Melvin after a lifetime of being ignored.

"'The Toxic Avenger' is exactly what the country -- wait, that's not big enough -- what the world needs right now," said Pink about the environmentally-conscious action comedy.

If he f*cks this up ... AND HE PROBABLY WILL ... Lloyd Kaufman will be rotating like a piece of wild boar on a spit in his grave .... and the f*cker isn't even dead yet.

By the way, Rest in Peace Jill Clayburgh (* thanks for the mention, trailertrash).

You can't remake Troma movies, that's just RETARDED! So will the remake include this hilariously disturbing scene or will they wuss out?:
