The Hollywood remake machine loves the '80s.

Deadline reports that the 1984 cult classic 'The Toxic Avenger' will soon be getting a makeover from producers Akiva Goldsman, Richard Saperstein and Charlie Corwin, who imagine the new Toxie as a green superhero for these environmentally conscious times.

The original 'Toxic Avenger,' which chronicles the adventures of a lovable nerd who is transformed into a heroic pollution-fighting mutant, was the brainchild of Troma mastermind Lloyd Kaufman. Troma has been responsible for some of the most memorable B-movie fare over the years, including 'Surf Nazis Must Die' and 'Stuff Stephanie in the Incinerator.' 'The Toxic Avenger' also spawned several sequels, an animated TV series, comics books and an Off-Broadway musical.
