Sarah Niles and Jonny Coyne Join the Cast of ‘Toxic Avenger’ Remake

Legendary Entertainment is developing a remake of Troma’s The Toxic Avenger, with Macon Blair on board to write and direct, and we’ve got more casting news today.

THR reports that Sarah Niles (I May Destroy You, above) and Jonny Coyne (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom) have signed on. “Coyne is playing a shadowy criminal figure while Niles will play a corrupt city official.” Elijah Wood, Julia Davis (Sally4Ever), Kevin BaconPeter Dinklage, Jacob Tremblay, and Taylour Paige (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom) will also star.

In the 1984 original, directed by Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz…

“The Toxic Avenger is born when meek mop boy Melvin falls into a vat of toxic waste. Now evildoers will have a lot to lose.”

Deadline details the upcoming remake, “A contemporary reimagining of Troma Entertainment’s successful 1984 low-budget action comedy hit, The Toxic Avenger is steeped in environmental themes and subverts the superhero genre in the vein of Deadpool. When a struggling everyman is pushed into a vat of toxic waste, he is transformed into a mutant freak who must go from shunned outcast to underdog hero as he races to save his son, his friends and his community from the forces of corruption and greed.”

Macon Blair starred in the films Blue Ruin and Green Room, and he more recently wrote Netflix’s Hold the Dark and wrote/directed I Don’t Feel At Home in This World Anymore.

Kaufman and Herz will produce the new take on Troma’s classic.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
