Will Schwarzenegger Prove Non-Toxic In THE TOXIC AVENGER Remake?

Yes, you read that right.
A remake of Troma's 1984 cult hit The Toxic Avenger is in the works, and according to Variety, Arnold Schwarzenegger is in talks to star.

For those thinking Arnie would be either atrocious (or perfect) as Toxie - the wimpy teenager transformed into a monstrous hulk by toxic waste - here is some consolation (or disappointment): he is being eyed for another role entirely.
This might prove a wise choice, seeing as how he has recently been more successful in supporting than starring roles.

Director of this reboot will be Steve Pink of Hot Tub Time Machine fame, and the aim is to make this new Toxic Avenger a mainstream action adventure.

Intriguing to say the least. And some interesting questions do come up.
Is this title even remotely fit for a mainstream-aimed remake? Is adding Arnold good or bad? And for Arnold, is it good or bad to be added?

Ehm... have your say?

    If there is 1 thing we should be taking away from "The Last Stand", it's that Arnold is dried up. He should just do himself (and us) a favour and stop, I think it is his time to retire.
