John Travolta to star in the new Toxic Avenger movie?

It's been a while since we've heard anything about Steve Pink's remake of the Troma classic The Toxic Avenger, but the latest batch of news is a total shocker. Rumor has it John Travolta is attached to the movie, and folks are speculating that Travolta is lined up to play Toxie himself. Whoa.

The industry site It's On The Grid has listed Travolta as a cast member for The Toxic Avenger, with no other actors currently attached. But the biggest surprise is the logline "Action-comedy remake in the vein of THE MASK... he's an environmental superhero...doesn't want it to be campy..." We're not sure how you pull off a serious Toxic Avenger, but we would really like to see someone try. Insanity!
