According to agency tracking database thingy The Grid, veteran actor John Travolta has signed up for Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink’s family friendly comedy reboot of 1984’s gharish horror/exploitation/superhero movie The Toxic Avenger.

Even more bizarrely, original Toxic Avenger director and Troma studios boss Lloyd Kaufman actually worked on Saturday Night Fever in some sort of production capacity, so this wouldn’t be the first time they’ve met… as you’d know if you’d read our brilliant Troma Complete Guide in the new issue of SciFiNow.
