Arnold Schwarzenegger in Talks for "Toxic Avenger" Remake

Posted: May 14th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Arnold Schwarzenegger in Talks for "Toxic Avenger" RemakeSubmit Comment
About three years ago, it was revealed that there were plans for a "Toxic Avenger" remake. Since then, "Hot Tub Time Machine" helmer Steve Pink was attached to direct and John Travolta was in talks to star.

Variety has now learned that the film is moving forward and is negotiating with Arnold Schwarzenegger to play a leading role. If cast, he'll play a major part in the film, but will not be the title character. Pink is still on board to direct. No word if Travolta is involved.

The original film was set in Tromaville, New Jersey - a small American town, terrorized by criminals. Among the residents of Tromaville is Melvin, a nerdy janitor at the local health club. A gang of thugs devise a cruel hoax that goes horribly wrong as Melvin is thrown into hazardous toxic waste. As the chemicals take hold of his body, Melvin turns into the Toxic Avenger, doer of good, and brutal mauler of evil.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse should play the nerd and Randy Couture should play Toxie.

This is going to suck major c*ckd*cks, the original is it's own brand of f*cked-up disgustingly hilarious content.
I don't know how their going to accomplish this, nor do I think they will.

Please let this be a late April Fools Joke. The original is not even a classic, but it is hilariously bad.

Any guesses who Arnie will play? Guessing town sheriff. Love to see him do the cop role from Night of the Creeps that originally went to Tom Atkins, who f*cking nailed it.

But yeah this is going to be f*cking sh*t, probably, not that the original was anything but your typical bucket of Troma turds.

Just shave his head and you got a perfect looking Toxic Avenger. No make up or prosthetics required.
