Over the weekend, I was in a conversation with someone and they had mentioned that “big news” regarding The Toxic Avenger remake was on the way. I had no idea what was coming.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is in talks to co-star in the redo of the Troma film. Hollywood…you crazy.
The actor will not be playing Toxie, instead, he’ll play an exterminator.
Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine) scripted the film with Daniel C. Mitchell for producers Akiva Goldsman, Richard Saperstein and Charlie Corwin. Pink will also direct.
If you’ve never seen the original, the story focuses on a bullied nerd who has an accident involving toxic waste and turns into a hideously deformed brute.
