I remember The Toxic Avenger and several other great Troma films from when I was a kid. They were funny, gory, and probably the first time I ever saw boobs on film.

Now there’s talk that Arnold Schwarzenegger might be starring in a reboot of the franchise that not only had several movies, but also a toy line and a popular kid’s cartoon. However, news of him starring in it is a bit misleading. It is kind of like news that Johnny Depp is starring in Lone Ranger. No, Armie Hammer is.

Arnold will be playing a former black ops agent who trains a teenager to use his newly-acquired powers for good.

I’m going to guess that Christopher Mintz Plasse or DJ Qualls are near the top of the list for casting as Toxie.

Synopsis:

Loosely based on Lloyd Kaufman’s classic Troma franchise, THE TOXIC AVENGER is the tale of a high-school kid who gets dunked in a vat of toxic waste by a corrupt chemical company. He survives the ordeal with one major side effect: upon contact with toxic chemicals, he transforms into a monster with superhuman strength. Schwarzenegger would play ‘the Exterminator,’ a former black ops agent, who trains Toxie to use his powers for good. Together they take on the lurking menace created by the polluters, and the polluters themselves.
