So yeah… This is happening. Earlier this year it was announced that there will be a Toxic Avenger remake and that it will be aiming for a PG-13 rating to gain audience. We recently got some news about the remake and that Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine, Accepted) will be directing the film. Pink went on to say this:
““The Toxic Avenger is exactly what the country–wait, that’s not big enough–what the world needs right now.”
Other news is that Pink and Daniel C. Mitchell (Dead Last) will be writing up the script. While I like Pink’s enthusiasm, I really don’t think we need a remake of Toxie, especially a PG-13 remake though I am all for the idea of introducing the Toxic Avenger to a new generation of folks.
What do y’all think of this news? You think Pink will be able to bring the funny to the Toxic Avenger remake or will this fail in the new age? Tell us what you think by leaving a comment.
