Lloyd Kaufman Says ‘Toxic Avenger 5’ Will Feature More “Girls, Guts and Gruesome Gore”



Lloyd Kaufman Says 'Toxic Avenger 5' Will Feature More "Girls, Guts and Gruesome Gore"

While The Toxic Avenger remake continues to remain in development hell, Troma’s very own Lloyd Kaufman says we can expect to see another franchise sequel in the near future. That’s right, the script for The Toxic Avenger 5 is done and dusted.

Kaufman recently sat down for a chat, revealing that the next Toxie flick will feature more Girls, Guts and Gruesome Gore.

It’s definitely coming,” says Troma chief Lloyd Kaufman. “The problem is that we need to get our new Troma movie, Shakespeare’s Shitstorm, which is our version of The Tempest, out into the cinemas and on DVD so that we can get some money together for it. This is a very ambitious Toxic Avenger movie. The script is complete and it will focus on Toxie’s two children who, 20 years after part four, have all grown up. And one has mutated into a very strange being [laughs]

He continues:

Fans can expect more low-budget action with the usual Troma mix of girls, guts and gruesome gore. Toxie is going to go to Chernobyl in this one”, adds Kaufman. “It will cost just $100,000 – but I think it is the best one yet. I have worked with [Guardians of the Galaxy director] James Gunn and the script we have for The Toxic Avenger 5 is the finest I have read. It shows Toxie fighting the bureaucrats and the obnoxiousrich people who are harming the people of Tromaville.

What about that Toxic Avenger remake? Kaufman will only mention that it remains in development hell:

Conrad Vernon, who directed Shrek 2 and Sausage Party is attached,” he says. “I have spoken to him and he knows all the Troma movies and is a big fan. I think he really understands The Toxic Avenger and I believe he will bring a cartoon sensibility to it. This is his first live-action movie and we hope it gets rolling soon
