We’ve known about the Total Recall remake since last July, but apparently I missed the memo about it starring Colin Farrell as Quaid. It seems like bizarre casting when you compare him to Schwarzenegger, but on the other hand, I can totally imagine Colin Farrell feeling up a three-breasted prostitute. Hell, there’s probably pictures. Anyway, Farrell’s casting isn’t new news, but it was confirmed in Sony’s announcement of their 2012 releases. Get a load of this slate of films:
First up, I Hate You Dad, the father-son comedy starring Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg [who are 12 years apart in age -Ed], is scheduled for June 22nd. Next up, Frank Coraci’s action-comedy Here Comes the Boom starring Kevin James [the MMA-saves-the-rec-center movie] has been scheduled for July 27th. And finally, Len Wiseman’s re-imagining of Philip K. Dick’s sci-fi Mars story Total Recall, starring Colin Farrell as Doug Quaid, has been scheduled for release on August 3rd later in the summer [not in 3D]. [via FirstShowing]
Wow, we’ll be treated to ALL of those films in the SAME YEAR? The year 2012? I’m sorry I ever doubted you, Ancient Mayans. I shall humbly sacrifice a capybara and await the judgment of Kinich Ahau and the Ghost Penis of Toltec Itzquoatl. Also, if “Here Comes the Boom” doesn’t have a fart reference in the poster I shall be most disappointed.
