FROM TROMAVILLE, after a lovely Lunch by the Tromaville Power Plant, we catch up with Dad, again, hard at work, and interrupt him to ask a few key questions sent in to us from you, dear fans:
First up, Dad takes a moment from some creative discovery to answer a question from Dan Semel:
Steven Haar Writes From the Land Down Under :
SH: G’day Uncle Lloyd, this is Steven Haar. I was just wondering if you were planning on filming any of your future projects (or at least visit) Melbourne, Australia? And do you need Tromen from Melbourne, Australia?
LK: G’day mate, I am Melbourning to make a movie in your town. Our budget is too down under, and our Koality is not up enough. I found your question certainly not kangarude, but while I can’t promise we will be filming in Aussie land, we are looking for a few good Tromen and women from Melbourne indeed.
In fact, we are calling for Tromettes and Tromen and TROMOSAPIENS from all over the world:
You can be in a future movie!
ARE YOU A TROMO SAPIEN?
Do you hear the call to be a Tromette? Or a Troman? Lloyd Kaufman is currently
developing a script far more personal than his film TERROR FIRMER. This
new work will include one minute portraits of Tromo Sapien auditions. If you
are, or want to be, a member of this elite species, please send in a one minute
filmed audition for a chance to appear in the upcoming film and/or on the Troma
If possible, Troma would prefer high definition, one minute Quicktime movies on
data disc, sent to:
Lloyd’s Unnamed Movie
36-40 11th Street
Long Island City, New York 11106
Mini-DVs may also be sent to this address. Alternatively, you may use
firstname.lastname@example.org to email us your film files!
IT’s take your daughters to work day at Troma Studios. After a civilized morning walk down the perfectly manicured upper east side Prominade with Southern Belle Mom, things take a Turn for Troma and we head out East to Long Island City to follow Dad in a typical Tromatic Day in Tromaville.
We start out from our nice little house with some good cursing as the wheels on dad’s very masculine turquoise rolling bag get stuck in the stairs down from our brownstone. fck fck fck its hot in the sun. Dad has to slap on sunscreen, in case you didn’t know, he had all sorts of subhumanoid cancers scalpeled out of his face at various times in his life, and so every morning slaps on special ordered Sunlotion with astronomic SPF’s like 200 SPF that has Glue in it, so it never comes off. then we head to the subway.
It is approximately 105 degrees on the Express train platform. We change at 59th street to the Queens bound train, dad pulls his turqoise and white polkadot rolling suitcase up the stairs through the crowds of people, cursing, pausing only to stretch because the Bee Sting Therapy he is using to solve his back pain hasn’t kicked in yet this week, or to point out a rat rummaging through some garbage in the tracks below the platform. This is a dignified way to travel to work for an award winning 65 year old director who has run an independent studio for 36 years.
And now, finally, we’ve arrived safe and sound in the peaceful airconditioned Troma studios where we’ve taken over the desk of Michael Herz, Pop’s Longtime partner (no, not that kind of partner) and have set up shop in an office just like any other — full of bloody limbs, severed heads, half crushed skulls, and various Tromabilia, ready to take your questions.
Bjarni Gautur Thomas asks LLOYD:
How much control with Troma have over the Toxic Avenger remake? Is there a shot we will be seeing other Troma characters in the remake? Or the Toxic Crusaders?
LLOYD: We have no control over the remake, but we have total control over Toxic Avenger Part V. Sgt. Kabuki Man has a big part in it, and which ever characters you fans like best will also have a Cameo. Troma is fan based operation. Who do you want to see?
Note: Hi this is Charlotte, dad has had to step out of the room, but while he is gone let me take a moment to step in here. Since you asked about the key characters from the TOXIC CRUSADERS, you may recall our roles as “Lloyd’s Kids” in the cartoon series, so let me assure you that the TOXIC AVENGER V script will star the three of us. If not for our award winning roles as the bearded beauties Lloyd’s Kids, then for the free labor of hiring his own daughters.
