Farrell to replace Arnie in new Total Recall
Does anyone else think this is a crap idea? Man, why can't they leave the old films alone. I enjoyed Total Recall and have absolutely no desire to see it being remade. Sigh.
Colin Farrell is to star in a remake of 'Total Recall', it has been confirmed.
The Irish actor will reprise Arnold Schwarzenegger's lead role in the 1990 classic.
Farrell is currently putting himself through a gruelling training regime in a bid to get in shape for the action hero part of Douglas Quaid.
He said, "Iím curious every time I go to work and Iím curious to go to work on 'Total Recall'.
"Script is cool. Script is smart. Itís clever and itís well written and thereís loads of action.
ďI saw some of the pre-visualisations already and itís the first time in years where I went, ĎWow! I could be part of that? In that frame?í Itís gone back to the original.Ē
Talking about the film, producer Neal Moritz commented, "I think the world that [director] Len Wiseman is creating is incredible. Itís a real world, a real future world, where the cities have just gotten so overcrowded that the cities are just built up, up, up, up."
He added: "Weíre playing it like a real world, but thereís all these technological advancements to the real world, and itís just really, itís cool. Itís an awesome movie. Iím dyingóas a fan of movies, more than anything, itís a movie that Iím just dying to see.Ē
Filming on 'Total Recall' will begin in May.
