Schwarzenegger on board for Toxic Avenger reboot?

You read that right. Arnold Schwarzenegger is in talks to star in a remake of the Troma Films cult classic, The Toxic Avenger. Wanna fight about it?

I'm not bullshitting you. The man who played The Terminator, John Matrix and Dutch from Predator is interested in co-starring in a new take on The Toxic Avenger. Note co-starring, as word has it Arnold won't be the Toxic Avenger himself.

He'll be an exterminator, apparently. Get it? From Terminator to an exterminator. Ha!

Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink co-wrote the new Toxic Avenger and will direct. I really liked Hot Tub Time Machine, and have not seen the original Toxic Avenger, so with Schwarzenegger on board, I'd give this a watch.

The plot of the original Toxic Avenger is as follows: The Toxic Avenger is born when mop boy Melvin Junko falls into a vat of toxic waste. Now evildoers will have a lot to lose. So says the IMDb.
