Steve Pink (Hot Tub Timemachine) dreht Toxic Avenger-Remake

1 Comment

Zuletzt bloggte ich im April über die Remake-Pläne zum Mop-Mutanten Toxie, den sie damals als „Komödie für die ganze Familie“ wieder aufleben lassen wollten. Jetzt haben sie dafür Steve Pink, Regisseur von „Hot Tub Time Machine“ engagiert, der auch schon den tollen „Accepted“ (mit dem strunzigen Namen „S.H.I.T. – Die Highschool GMBH“) drehte und am schönen „Grosse Pointe Blank“ und dem grandiosen „High Fidelity“ mitschrieb. Beruhigend.

Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink will helm the remake of The Toxic Avenger, which he’ll write with Daniel C. Mitchell. Deadline revealed last April that remake rights to the Troma Films seminal title were acquired by producers Akiva Goldsman, Richard Saperstein and Charlie Corwin. That package was expansive and included the 1984 original, four sequels, an animated TV series and comic books. Corwin’s Original Media, which is a partnership with Dutch reality TV maker Endemol, is funding development of what the makers call an environmentally-conscious action-comedy.

“The Toxic Avenger is exactly what the country–wait, that’s not big enough–what the world needs right now,” said Pink

    Es ist eigentlich unglaublich, dass der Remake-Wahnsinn jetzt sogar schon vor Troma nicht mehr Halt macht. Der erste Toxie hat bei mir ja über die Jahre etwas abgenommen, der zweite und besonders dritte hingegen gefallen mir heute sogar mehr als damals. Den letzten habe ich noch gar nicht gesehen. Wie auch immer, so lange sie die Wischmob- und Tanzszene auch remaken bin ich d’accord. :)

    DVD cover for gay and lesbian comedy movie “Pride” is ‘straight-washed’ for American market

    In case you’re wondering the critically acclaimed comedy is about a group of gay and lesbian activists who supported striking miners in the 1980’s

    The top photo is the USA DVD cover with Lesbians & Gays edited out, the bottom photo is the European version

    The wording has also changed from  ”a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists” to “a group of London-based activists”.

    Sir Christopher Lee, more fantastic than all of us. ALL OF US.

    Performed in a metal opera as Charlemagne.

    Schooled director of original and only worthwhile Wicker Man about ancient Druidic practices.

    And blessed with the most authoritarian voice ever. And I think he’s like 1,90m tall

    The only person in Peter Jackson’s LOTR cast to have met and conversed with J.R.R Tolkien 

    Corrected Sir Peter on the sound a person makes when stabbed in the back due to actual experience with that action

    He didn’t just perform as Charlemagne; he’s directly related to the great Frankish king.

    His WWII service was in the British Special Forces.

    He was an SOE agent, right?

    That he was
