“I was only there for a few days, but the director is all about Troma,” Kaufman tells Den of Geek. “He knows every movie. He’s seen Terror Firmer, I don’t know how many times he’s seen that, Tromeo and Juliet. He’s seen every obscure Troma movie.”

Kaufman is equally excited about the commitment of the players. “You can’t have a better cast than Peter Dinklage, Kevin Bacon, Julia Davis, from England, terrific,” Kaufman says. “A major, major, major talent. She’s not as famous as Elijah Wood, but she has a show called Sally4Ever. And they clearly watch Troma movies.”

The title role will be played by Dinklage, whose blind faith in a dragon MILF led to some questionable decisions on HBO’s Game of Thrones. In The Toxic Avenger, his Melvin Ford (who was played by Mark Torgl in the original) is a regular janitor until he tumbles headfirst into a vat of hazardous waste, mutating him into The Toxic Avenger.

“Toxie is the ultimate underdog,” Kaufman explains. “He’s not a superhero; he’s got a mop and he can jump. That’s it. He doesn’t have all the fancy-schmancy stuff, but he’s heavily influenced by Stan Lee, who was a close friend for over 50 years.”

With high-powered detergents, a badass attitude, and an oddly flattering pink tutu, Toxie takes on the dirtiest job of all. He tries to clean up New Jersey. But the groundbreaking, forward-thinking, environmental warrior never got the respect of more metropolitan marvels.

“A lot of 13 year olds have reverence for Spider-Man,” Kaufman says. “But you go to a convention, and hang out at our booth, there’s a line all day. We have a small cult following though, 98 percent of the world never heard of the Toxic Avenger. So wait until the big movie comes out. I think the fans are going to be very, very happy with this $200 million movie.”
