If you hadn’t heard, Total Recall is being remade, which Vince reported decision. THR says Colin Farrell is the top choice for the Arnold Shwanz-, Schwartz-, *googling* Schwarzennegar role. Also on the list of Sony and director Len Wiseman’s candidates are Tom Hardy (Inception, my spank bank) and Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds).
The script is by Kurt Wimmer (Law Abiding Citizen, Salt), and Neil Moritz will produce under his — get a load of this this — “Original Film” banner. Right now, Farrell looks to be the most likely choice, as he will be available to work after production on By Virtue Fall wraps up next January. Hardy and Fassbender will likely not be finished with their own projects yet when this Original Film begins shooting
my childhood in the face next March.
