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. :)

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
