Legendary Pictures is working on a reboot of Troma’s 1984 cult classic The Toxic Avenger—and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) is in talks to star.

In the original film, the Toxic Avenger is born when meek mop boy Melvin falls into a vat of toxic waste. Now, evildoers will have a lot to lose.

It has not yet been revealed what role Dinklage will play in the reboot. The film will be directed by Macon Blair, whose previous credits include directing Netflix’s I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore and starring in Green Room. Troma co-founders Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz will produce alongside Legendary’s Alex Garcia and Jay Ashenfelter.
