Toxie Makes Musical and Remake Return?
What won't people turn into musicals these days? What films won't studios decide to remake for that matter? Not even Troma is safe from this weird trend!
Icons of Fright chatted with Troma's main man Lloyd Kaufman about future indie projects, and he let loose some odd news regarding future installments in the Toxic Avenger franchise. When questioned about some pictures Lloyd had on his desk he admitted, "Yes! Some excellent theatrical producers, the folks that brought you Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and I believe the Harriet Tubman story, the musical of course, they are going to be producing Toxic Avenger: The Musical."
As far as the rumors go about a Toxie remake, Mr. Kaufman commented, "We’re getting a lot of calls from people like Brett Ratner and others who want to remake Troma movies," but actual cash has never shown up to move things along. Lloyd also isn't really thrilled with the idea of betraying fans by letting anyone else outside of Troma touch the material, unless that person was Eli Roth or James Gunn.
