According to Deadline, Peter Dinklage (‘Game of Thrones’) is in talks to star in the remake of ‘The Toxic Avenger’, which is being developed by Legendary Entertainment.
Macon Blair will be responsible for directing and scripting the new version.
Blair starred in the horror “ Green Room ” and also wrote and directed the Netflix thriller.
Released in 1984, the first film followed a monstrous hero: The Toxic Avenger. The character gained powers after falling into a swamp filled with toxic waste.
It’s worth remembering that a few years ago franchise creator Lloyd Kaufman revealed he was developing a new streak for the original franchise – but the project ended up being shelved.
Over the years, the franchise has had four films and one animated series.
