'The Toxic Avenger' Remake Stamped With an "R" Rating for "Strong Violence and Gore"

The Motion Picture Association has officially stamped Legendary Pictures Entertainment and director Macon Blair’s remake of The Toxic Avenger with an R rating for “strong violence and gore, language throughout, sexual references and brief graphic nudity”.

On a related note, the film wrapped production in Bulgaria back in August of 2021.

Blair’s modern take on Troma’s The Toxic Avenger stars Peter Dinklage as

“Winston, a stereotypical weakling who works as a janitor at Garb-X health club and is diagnosed with a terminal illness that can only be cured by an expensive treatment that his greedy, power hungry employer refuses to pay for. After deciding to take matters into his own hands and rob his company, Winston falls into a pit of toxic waste and is transformed into a deformed monster that sets out to do good and get back at all the people who have wronged him.”

Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz of Troma Entertainment served as producers on the project with Alex Garcia and Jay Ashenfelter overseeing for Legendary.
