John Travolta to Star in "Toxic Avengers" Remake?

John Travolta to Star in "Toxic Avengers" Remake?Submit Comment
About two years ago it was reported that "Hot Tub Time Machine" director Steve Pink signed on to helm the remake of "Toxic Avenger," which will be based on the 1984 film, its four sequels, an animated TV series and comic books.

And now comes word that John Travolta is attached to the project. He obviously won't play Melvin, but it's possible that he'll be turned into the Toxic Avenger. At this point, however, it's not even clear whether the project is still alive. Stay tuned.

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.
