Schwarzenegger for The Toxic Avenger?

Arnie for Toxie?

By Robert T. Trate     May 13, 2013
Source: The Hollywood Reporter

Heat Vision, of the Hollywood Reporter, released the news that Arnold Schwarzenegger is in talks to star in a remake of The Toxic Avenger. Yeah, that’s right Arnold joins The Toxic Avenger Saga. If Schwarzenegger does sign on for the project he wold be directed by Steve Pink (Hot Tub TIme Machine) who has also co-written the script with Daniel C. Mitchell. 


“The 1984 original told the tale of a nebbish boy who, after falling into a vat of toxic waste, becomes a disfigured radioactive hulking mess who fights bad guys”. Check out the original trailer below. 


The updated version is about “an average teen joining an environmental club to impress his crush. While doing some investigating at a waste plant, he is thrown into a tub of waste and transforms into a radioactive hero”.


So who would Schwarzenegger play? Would it be the the radioactive hero transformed? The crush's stepfather? The owner of the radio active plant?

 I'm thinking he can only be Toxie. That would be interesting to say the least. I just want to know what they can do with thsi story with a budget.

For some reason this sounds like BS, but then again I've heard  he's doing a sequel to Twins so I guess anything is possible.

 But then again he's too old for Toxie.

I'm starting to try and face reality and have come to the realization that I need to lower my expectations for anything Arnie, one of my movie heroes, to very low levels.

Hope he finds a breakout role again but..........

Maybe King Conan can be his saving grace

 this would be great for him.  Way out of the arnie norm .. still why not?                       Wise, almost forgot bout that, King Conan would be so bad ass...

 well with how he has aged, they wont really need to much makeup effects atleast.

 I'd think he'd have to play the villian in this flick, just my opinion, but I can't see him playing Toxie, just too old.

Does anyone remember the Toxie cartoon or the action figures?...If Arnold is Toxie, would anyone else see the irony in him "punishing" drug pushers at the gym?
