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?
