After years of brand-damaging releases, a new Toxic Avenger is in the works alongside a sequel to Class of Nuke ‘Em High.
Troma Entertainment announces that the Class of Nuke ‘Em High franchise will have a new installment filmed in Spain with a Spanish cast and crew, produced by Mushnik’s Entertainment in collaboration with Chaparra Entertainment.
The original Class of Nuke ‘Em High, directed by Richard W. Haines and Troma President Lloyd Kaufman in 1986, “tells how a radioactive leak in the Tromaville Nuclear Plant contaminates the marijuana consumed by the students in Tromaville High School.”
It sold about 500,000 copies just in the US, becoming a cult hit nearly as successful as The Toxic Avenger and Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. The first film was followed by two sequels, made in 1991 and 1994: Class of Nuke ‘Em High Part II: Subhumanoid Meltdown (Eric Louzil & Donald G. Jackson) and Class of Nuke ‘Em High Part 3: The Good, the Bad and the Subhumanoid (Louzil).
The sequel will be directed by Marc Gras (Troma is Spanish for Troma) and Dani Moreno (Amazing Mask), and will be the first Troma movie filmed outside the US since The Toxic Avenger Part II (1989), which was filmed partly in Japan.
The latest Toxic Avenger has been in pre-production for years, I won’t believe this sequel will happen until it’s actually behind cameras.
