A 98-pound nerd (Mark Torgl) from New Jersey lands in a vat of toxic waste and becomes a benevolent monster (Mitchell Cohen).
The 1985 cult favorite The Toxic Avenger was a huge hit for B-movie production company Troma Entertainment and spawned several sequels. The movie followed a wimpy janitor who, after accidentally falling into toxic waste, transforms into a superhuman creature. In April came the announcement that a reboot would turn Toxie into a "green superhero for these environmentally conscious times." Producer Akiva Goldsman and his production team have found a writer-director who can handle the challenge of bringing a campy, cult movie into modern times.
