Kevin Bacon Lands Villain Role in Legendary’s 'Toxic Avenger' Reboot!

According to a report via the THR this week, Kevin Bacon, star of horror films such as Tremors and more recently You Should Have Left, has been cast as a villain in Legendary Pictures and director Macon Blair‘s reboot of Troma’s 1984 comedy horror flick Toxic Avenger.

The film’s official synopsis is as follows:

“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 Jacob Tremblay, Peter Dinklage, and Taylour Paige.
