Jacob Tremblay Joins the Cast of Legendary Pictures' Upcoming 'Toxic Avenger' Reboot

It’s been two years since we last got an update on director Macon Blair and Legendary Pictures’ reboot of Lloyd Kaufman‘s original 1984 comedy horror film The Toxic Avenger. According to a recent report from our friends over at the Deadline website, actor Jacob Tremblay (The Book of Henry) has joined the cast of the upcoming project.

The site also shared the film’s synopsis:

“A contemporary reimagining of Troma Entertainment’s successful 1984 low-budget action comedy hit, The Toxic Avenger is steeped in environmental themes and subverts the superhero genre in the vein of Deadpool. When a struggling everyman is pushed into a vat of toxic waste, he is transformed into a mutant freak who must go from shunned outcast to underdog hero as he races to save his son, his friends and his community from the forces of corruption and greed. Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz will serve as producers.”

The film also stars Peter Dinklage (Pixels).
