Legendary has acquired the film rights to “The Toxic Avenger” franchise from Troma Entertainment.
Launched as a low-budget B-movie in 1984, the film series told the story of a boy who becomes a disfigured radioactive hulking mess after falling into a vat of toxic waste. He then uses his newfound form to fight villains.
The original film generated three film sequels, a stage musical production, a video game and a children’s TV cartoon. Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz will serve as producers on the new take.
