Toxic Avenger Remake to Become a Sausage Party?

Toxic Avenger Remake to Become a Sausage Party?

This is really the only explanation you need for the film.

It wouldn’t seem like it, but “The Toxic Avenger” is quite a large franchise.

Sadly it hasn’t been active for some time and with superheroes dominating the box office it seems like as good of time as any to bring old Toxie back. However, this is a project that the producers have been discussing for some time. Mainly trying to find someone who can direct the film. It would seem they may have found a director in the form of Conrad Vernon. Don’t recognize the name? Well he was the co-director of the recent “Sausage Party“.

A face only a mother could lo… disown.

For those who don’t know “The Toxic Avenger” began life as a slasher film, but during production became more of a superhero film. Shocking pretty much everyone it spawned 3 sequels (two of them filmed simultaneously) video games, comic books, a musical (yeah I’m as shocked as you) and of course a kid’s cartoon series with a line of action figures. Now if that doesn’t seem strange to you then let me explain, the film was filmed as a slasher. So as such it is a VIOLENT film. The bad-guys run over kids in their car for fun, Toxie kills people by shoving a mop through their faces and Spoiler Warning in the end of the film kills the big bad guy by punching him so hard in the stomach that his organs fall out. So who better to director than the co-director of such films as “Shrek 2”, “Madagascar 3” and “Monsters vs Aliens”. Yes before hitting it big with “Sausage Party” that is was Conrad Vernon was most known for. He seems to be transitioning himself in his career, just a bit.

You know we never did get to see how the nuclear waste affected the Toxie’s… you know what never mind.

Despite what I mentioned earlier I HIGHLY doubt the remake will be as violent as the first film. I’m sure it’ll be a PG-13 that at most pushes the envelope of the rating, but that’s probably it. Still a director who has a background with adult humor and the ability to understand what the youth enjoy both in action and comedy. Hopefully the rumors about his and the top people on “Sausage Party” treatment of the crew won’t follow him on to this production.

What do you think? Does the director of “Sausage Party” seem like a good fit for “The Toxic Avenger”?

About The Author

Eric

Eric grew up with a simple childhood. At age 11 a six fingered man murdered his father in front of his eyes, while his mother died defending him from an attack from a sharptooth, then an evil toon dropped a piano from 15 stories onto his brother's head and then on top of all of that while on the job he was brutally shot up and left for dead but was rebuilt as a robotic cop to get his revenge. ...Oooorr maybe he just watched a lot of movies growing up and got really into them. From a young age Eric realized learning things like science, math, people's names etc. took some real effort but could easily remember practically all the dialog/plot details from a random movie he watched on tv years ago. He knew from a young age that he wanted to make movies and never strayed from that. Going to college to get an education in film production and working on movie sets whenever it can be fit into his schedule. Get him into a room full of people he doesn't know and over time you may eventually get him to open up but just mention some movies and he'll talk for hours, never afraid to (respectfully) argue with fellow movie nerds. Now he puts that love and energy toward writing for FilmFad.com.
