The cult-classic The Toxic Avenger is getting a face-lift with a remake.   It was announced today that Sausage Party co-director Conrad Vernon has be tapped to direct the re-imagination of the ultimate Troma film.  It has been over 30 years since 98 pound weakling Melvin Ferd (Mark Torgl) fell into a drum of toxic waste to emerge as the Toxic Avenger.

Little else is know about the reboot of the horror-comedy, which spawned the sequels The Toxic Avenger II, The Toxic Avenger III: The Last Temptation of Toxie and Citizen Toxie:  The Toxic Avenger IV.  Troma Entertainment founder Lloyd Kaufman will executive produce along with his co-director of the original film, Michael Herz.   Archer creators Mike Arnold and Chris Poole will be penning the script.  No release date has been confirmed.
