John Travolta may be appearing in a remake of the 1985 cult movie The Toxic Avenger: a recent update to The Grid shows Travolta as the only confirmed cast member.
This remake of The Toxic Avenger was announced almost two years ago with Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine) signed on as the director. No news has been revealed since Pink’s involvement and no other signs of Travolta’s involvement have been announced to date.
However, the listing on the grid does reveal a logline stating that the film will be an “action-comedy remake in the vein of The Mask” and ending with “doesn’t want it to be campy.”
Judging by the request to avoid camp, it is completely possible that the producers of the new Toxic Avenger movie may not have actually seen the original film or even The Mask.
