In a surprising move, Arnold Schwarzenegger has chosen to star in a reimagining of Troma’s classic 1984 low-budget horror movie “The Toxic Avenger”.
The new version sees an average teen join 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 hulking mess who fights bad guys.
Steve Pink (“Hot Tub Time Machine”) directs from a script he co-wrote with Daniel C. Mitchell. Akiva Goldsman and Richard Saperstein are producing.
Schwarzenegger will play former black ops agent “The Exterminator,” who trains Toxie to use his powers for good.
