Remember the insane (but never denied) rumour that John Travolta was in talks to take the lead in the (very real) reboot of Troma’s most successful property to date, THE TOXIC AVENGER? Well, that’s now been trumped, with news hitting that Arnold Schwarzenegger himself is in negotiations to play what’s thought to be the villain role. Ordinarily we’d dismiss such craziness, but the people responsible for breaking this one are Variety themselves, one of the most respected industry sources in Hollywood.
As was the case back in August, HOT TUB TIME MACHINE’s writer/director Steve Pink remains in the director’s chair, having co-written the more family-friendly script with newcomer Daniel C. Mitchell. More news as we get it. (Prediction, the next article we run on the project will probably go something like this… Movie News: Schwarzenegger Confirms TOXIC AVENGER Reboot Rumours “Are Bollocks”).
