Return of the Toxic Avenger?

toxicavenger2Sausage Party’s Conrad Vernon is in charge of a reboot of Troma’s The Toxic Avenger, according to a report at Deadline.

The mutant superhero – New Jersey teenager Melvin Ferd who fell into a vat of toxic waste – appeared in four movies, as well as a stage musical and a children’s cartoon. Mike Arnold and Chris Poole are reworking the screenplay by Steve Pink and D.C. Mitchell based on the original script by Lloyd Kaufman and Joe Ritter.

“The opportunity to reimagine a favourite cult classic from my high school years is an honour,” Vernon said. According to Deadline, the new version will be a “more grounded and mainstream telling” of the tale.
