Toxic Avenger Remake Has a Director

This thing is actually moving forward?!

Hot Tub Time Machine‘s Steve Pink has signed to direct the remake of the seminal Troma offering The Toxic Avenger.

Yes, we live in strange times, my friend, when Troma’s library is now being mined for properties to reboot.

Pink will script the Avenger film with Daniel C. Mitchell for producers Akiva Goldsman, Richard Saperstein and Charlie Corwin.

If you’ve never seen the original, the story focuses on a bullied nerd who has an accident involving toxic waste and turns into a hideously deformed brute.
