‘The Toxic Avenger’ Reboot On The Way With Arnold Schwarzenegger Circling

toxicTROMA’s classic 1984 hit flick THE TOXIC AVENGER, the story of a nerdy gym janitor Melvin who falls into a barrel of toxic waste after some asshole criminal jocks play a prank on him and he becomes a mutated superhero crime fighter, is heading to remake land via Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine). Word on the street had John Travolta in talks for the lead role but that has not been confirmed.

News around the traps today is that ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER is eying a role in the film, not as Toxie himself, but as a former black ops special agent who trains Melvin how to use his power to fight crime.

Production on the new film is due to commence in Spring this year.
