Arnold Schwarzenegger is in negotiations to co-star in Steve Pink's remake of "The Toxic Avenger," TheWrap has learned

A mainstream reboot of the "classic" Troma franchise, the action-comedy will follow a 17 year-old high school student who gets dunked in toxic waste by a corrupt chemical company. He survives with the ability to transform into a monster with superhuman strength and becomes an unlikely hero.

In a cheeky nod to his "Terminator days," Schwarzenegger will play "The Exterminator," a former black ops agent who trains the protagonist to use his powers for good. Together they take on the lurking menace created by the polluters, as well the polluters themselves.

Akiva Goldsman and Richard Saperstein are producing with Charlie Corwin, Stephen Kessler and Michael Benaroya. Troma's Lloyd Kaufman will executive produce with Michael Herz.

International Film Trust will shop "The Toxic Avengers" to buyers this week at Cannes, and production is scheduled to start in the fall.

The real "Exterminator" is the guy who CGIs out his sagging man boobs.

... Body building has ironic consequences later in life it seems.

Just saw the news about it as well.

I never watched the original 2 movies (i think there was 2) and not sure what's it about really but i like remakes of old movies. I still have mixed feeling about Schwarzenegger acting :)

Anyway, it looks like he is a busy man now in Hollywood after years of being governor. He has 6-7 project for the next 2-3 years.
