Taylour Paige has been chosen to Toxic Avenger restart. The “contemporary reinvention“from the 1984 Troma horror comedy about a lanky New Jersey janitor who transforms into a gruesome crime fighter was first announced in 2010. However, the project became much more concrete when Macon Blair (I no longer feel at home in this world) took over as scriptwriter-director in 2019 and, last year, when game of ThronesPeter Dinklage signed on for the title role. After adding Jacob Tremblay in mid-April, Legendary’s remake of the cult classic is starting to build its cast.
Now, Term reports that Paige has been cast as the female lead in the Toxic Avenger to update. Fresh from an acclaimed supporting role in Ma Rainey’s black ass, Paige will now have a chance to star in a radically different kind of movie. The talented actress should only further solidify her status as a rising star as the year progresses, with upcoming appearances in the A24 production. Zola and Lena Dunham Sharp stick.
Although Paige’s role in the film is unknown, the 1980s Toxic Avenger he had a female love interest for the mutated superhuman. In the original, Sara was a blind damsel in distress whom the Toxic Avenger saved from various thugs before the two developed an affair. It remains to be seen if the reboot will attempt to place Paige in that role or in a more contemporary part with a little more agency. Still, with a script backed by original creator Lloyd Kaufman, the new Toxic Avenger It should delight Shlock fans everywhere every time it finally hits theaters.
