The Total Recall Remake Getting Set To Start Filming


So we are going from Arnie:

To Colin Farrell:

I don't know if that is better or worse really. I like the original story, so I am really a lot less negative about the prospects of this particular remake, despite the original being made just 20 years ago.

But the thing that I am happy about is the fact that it seems like everyone seems to be against going 3D with the movie. That is always good news.

You know, I can't believe I am saying this, but I might actually be looking forward to this remake.

I'm as shocked as you are.

Who's writing it?

There is a possibility of it being OK to be honest. There's no need for Arnie's bulk, and Colin is a better actor than him I'd argue.

I'll wait and see.

I don't feel attached enough to Total Recall to really be annoyed by this, it could be really good.

Feels weird saying that.

Colin Farrel really? Stallone doesn't want to do it?

Is there going to be a 3 breasted woman?

Megan: Kurt Wimmer. He's written some interesting movies in the past.

Dan: Yeah, it was Arnie's bulk that made David Cronenberg abandon the original... because he knew it was going to be a different kind of movie than he wanted to make from that material.

Lee: Yeah, it certainly isn't Robocop (those rat bastards who want to remake that should be lashed).

PTM: Well, if there are some on Earth, maybe.

Cohagen, give deese people air!

Love that movie. Isn't it based on a Philip K. Dick story? It'd be cool if the new script was a reinterpretation of the source material.
