Schwarzenegger set to star in Toxic Avenger remake…

May 27th, 2013 by Marc Comments


Remember the Toxic Avenger? From Troma? 1984? Unpleasant but funny and spawned comics, animated series etc? Even a line of toys? No? Google it…

Looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to star in a re-imagining (yes, another one) of the original movie about a teen who joins an environmental club to impress a girl and then falls into a tub of radioactive sludge which turns him into, yep you guessed it, The Toxic Avenger. No word if Joss Whedon is interested in, oh wait, wrong avengers. Anyway…

Arnie will play The Exterminator (no, really) who is ex-black ops and trains the Avenger to be a force for good…

The movie will be directed by Steve Pink who directed Hot Tub Time Machine and will be written by him and Daniel C. Mitchell.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
