And looks who’s behind it
Today, however, Deadline – boasting an “exclusive” – has backed up Arrow’s report and says The Toxic Avenger is the first in line to get rebooted. Behind this endeavor are producers Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend), Richard Saperstein and Charlie Corwin. Saperstein is presently working on a Blob remake with Rob Zombie and Corwin is the one who snatched up the Toxic rights.
According to Deadline, the goal is to “turn Toxie into a green superhero for these environmentally conscious times.”
