The Toxic Avenger reboot is described as a “contemporary reimagining” of the original 1984 low-budget action-comedy film, which will follow a “struggling everyman who, when pushed into a vat of toxic waste, 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.”
