Total Recall Movie - Total Recall Remake

New Total Recall MovieColumbia Pictures have announced that Director Len Wiseman (who directed the first two Underworld movies) will helm a reboot of Total Recall the cult 1990 movie that was starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Scriptwriter Kurt Wimmer (who wrote the script of Law Abiding Citizen) is in charge of the screenplay of this remake. The film will be a new, contemporized adaptation of Total Recall, which was based on the story, "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale" by Philip K. Dick. A few words from Director Len Wiseman and Columbia Picture' Matt Tolmach about this new Total Recall movie:

"I've always been fascinated with Philip K. Dick's short story, and I'm excited at that prospect of diving even deeper into the type of world it evokes and the questions it asks. I love that the most crucial mystery our character is trying to solve is the one of his own soul."
Director Len Wiseman

"Len Wiseman has an incredible love of the genre and a great gift for action. He'll bring a contemporary feel to the film while taking care with everything we love about Philip K. Dick's original story."
Matt Tolmach, President of Columbia Pictures

The original Total Recall movie was a science-fiction action movie directed by Paul Verhoeven, it was released in 1990. The plot concerns an apparently unsophisticated construction worker, Douglas Quaid (Schwarzenegger), who turns out to be a freedom fighter from Mars who has been relocated to Earth, and his attempts to restore order, and reverse the corrupt influence of commercial powers. Let's watch this movie trailer of the original Total Recall movie:


The original movie still look great even two decades later. I have mixed feelings regarding Hollywood's crave for remakes, but considering the advancements in technology and state-of-the-art visual effects, I'm pretty sure that the new Total Recall movie will be awesome.
