‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ Director Steve Pink To Deliver ‘Toxic Avenger’ Remake
  |  @   |  

Many of you may not even have any interest in a remake of the campy 1984 cult classic, The Toxic Avenger. But for those of you who are, a director has been signed and sealed.

Steve Pink, who is best known for his work directing the hit comedy, Hot Tub Time Machine, has signed on to helm the project, as well as write the script along with Daniel C. Mitchell. Of the announcement, Pink stated that “The Toxic Avenger is exactly what the country–wait, that’s not big enough–what the WORLD needs right now!”

Pink is of course referring to the Avenger’s “green” way of going about things. In the movie, a man named Melvin is the janitor at a health club. One day, some of the club’s evil patrons who often bully the janitor decide to pick on poor Melvin some more, which sees him running for safety, accidentally falling out of a second-story window, and landing in a large vat of toxic waste. The result: Melvin becomes horribly deformed, but also gains an incredible amount of strength, which he uses to battle the tainted people of the fictional New Jersey town in which the movie is set, including the corrupt mayor, and polluters.

Along with Hot Tub Time Machine, Pink has also directed Accepted, which starred Justin Long and Jonah Hill. He’s also done some writing before, penning the scripts for Grosse Point Blank and High Fidelity.
