After announcing development of a reboot of the cult classic superhero dark comedy franchise in March 2019 with Macon Blair set to write and direct, Legendary has tapped Game of Thrones alum Peter Dinklage to lead The Toxic Avenger, according to Deadline.
It sounds like this contemporary take will follow the same basic premise as the original, as "a struggling everyman is pushed into a Value-Added Tax of toxic waste and is transformed into a mutant freak who must go from shunned outcast to underdog hero as he races to save his son, his friends, and his community from the forces of corruption and greed".
The original 1984 comedy, produced by Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, is set in the fictional town of Tromaville, N.J., and centered on a mild-mannered janitor at a health club who's chased out a second story window by bullies and lands in a drum of toxic waste.
While the original movie didn't make a splash during its initial theatrical run, it slowly became a cult favorite and spawned three sequels: 1989's The Toxic Avenger Part II, The Toxic Avenger Part III: The Last Temptation of Toxie (which was released towards the end of 1989), and 2000's Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV. The studio acquired the rights to the film back in December 2018.
