Now that preproduction for the movie is nearly complete, Glenn Danzig has shared stills from his directorial debut, Verotika, a film set to share with the world Evil Elvis' cinematic vision. The photos feature three scenes presumably taken from the anthology film's trifecta of stories: One sees a topless woman shot from the back gazing eerily into a mirror in a darkened room, the second is a horrifying look at some grotesque monster pulling back the facial skin of what appears to be a complacent captive, and the final shows a spike-crowned Queen in a mesh headdress angrily wielding a knife in one hand while holding the hair of a dead-eyed young lady in her other.
The prolific musician also promised the movie would stay true to his established aesthetic and will include "a lot of the stuff I love ... shadowy stuff, gore and all of it." He added, "I'm not doing anything other than an R movie. I like boobs and blood." Fittingly then, the cast includes adult film star Kayden Kross in a prominent role.
Verotika will be based on the output of Danzig's long-running adult-themed comic-book publishing company Verotik, founded in 1994. A portmanteau of the words "violence" and "erotic," the company grew out of Danzig's lifelong love of comic books and has already inspired one film, the pornographic 2006 movie Grub Girl about a zombie sex worker who uses her newfound undead status to exact revenge on her abusive pimp.

Macon Blair has been tapped to write and direct Legendary’s reboot of the cult classic “The Toxic Avenger,” sources tell Variety.
Legendary acquired the feature film rights in December and have quickly made the project a high priority at the studio. Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz of Troma Entertainment will serve as producers with Alex Garcia and Jay Ashenfelter overseeing for Legendary.
Kaufman and Herz produced the original 1984 comedy, set in the fictional town of Tromaville, N.J., and centered on a mild-mannered janitor at a health club who’s chased out a second story window by bullies and lands in a drum of toxic waste. The chemicals cause him to transform into the Toxic Avenger, who has superhuman size and strength and stands up to bullies and corruption
“The Toxic Avenger” became successful after a long run as a midnight movie in New York City, leading to the sequels “The Toxic Avenger Part II,” “The Toxic Avenger Part III: The Last Temptation of Toxie,” and “Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV.” The property also became a stage musical production, a children’s cartoon TV series, and a Marvel comic.
