ArnoldArnold Schwarzenegger is taking another step back into the acting pool this week with news that he’s set to appear in an upcoming remake of The Toxic Avenger. Some reports have suggested that he will play the title character’s mentor, while others speculate that he may take on the role of a villain.

For those of you unfamiliar with Lloyd Kaufman’s 80s cult favourite, you best check out this trailer:

Now here’s a genuine question: how is ANYBODY expected to top that?

Kaufman will serve as an executive producer while  Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink will be calling the shots. While Schwarzenegger has been out of the governor’s for over two years now, he’s been slow to jump back into acting, taking a minor role in Expendables 2 before moving back into the driver’s seat with the under-rated The Last Stand.

Arnold has wrapped production on Ten, an action thriller directed by End of Watch‘s David Ayer. It’s due in cinemas early 2014.
