Troma classics, Class of Nuke ’em High and Poultrygeist in Negotiation for Remake

Greetings from Tromaville! Troma Entertainment’s theatrical classics, Class of Nuke ‘Em High and Poultrygeist, are now in negotiation to be remade as mainstream, big-budget productions, following deals for the remake of The Toxic Avenger, which will be produced by Akiva Goldsman and directed by Steven Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine), and Troma’s Mother’s Day, which has just been remade by Brett Ratner (X-Men, Tower Heist).

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 Troma classics The Toxic Avenger and Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D.

Originally released in 2006, Poultrygeist follows Arbie, a young man trying to win back his ex-girlfriend Wendy by getting a job at the same New Jersey fried chicken fast-food restaurant where she works. Unbeknownst to Arbie and the other employees, however, the restaurant is located on sacred Indian burial grounds, which brings hordes of demonic chickens to attack everyone in the vicinity. Entertainment Weekly called Poultrygeist “as savage as Dawn of the Dead, as slapstick nutzoid as Evil Dead 2… an exploitation movie with soul.”
