Original Toxic Avenger creator and Troma founder Lloyd Kaufman humorously replied:
Kaufman tells us here at Dread Central: “Macon Blair knows Troma better than I do. He’s seen everything. He’s seen the cartoon, he’s seen the Halloween special, he’s seen everything… I’ve read the script and it’s better than the original and I leave it to him. If I’m called upon, I’d be happy to jump in. I learned on the musical to leave the creative to the creative. I learned to let them ask so if they want me, I’m there.

Blair’s Toxic Avenger remake stars Elijah Wood, Julia Davis, Kevin Bacon, Taylour Paige, Peter Dinklage, Jacob Tremblay, Jonny Coyne, and Sarah Niles. Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz are producing for Legendary.
