Arnold Schwarzenegger is reportedly in negotiations for a major role in a remake of Toxic Avenger.
The actor will not be playing the Avenger himself, but instead another lead role, report Variety.
The project, described as “an action adventure geared toward mainstream audiences”, has been written by Steve Pink, and produced by Elysium Films. The original Toxic Avenger was released in 1984, to low takings and negative reviews. However, it gained a cult following, leading to two sequels and a musical.
