When Colin Farrell was replaced by Robert Pattinson in David Cronenberg’s film Cosmopolis, it seemed safe to assume that Farrell was taking the lead in the Len Wiseman-directed remake of Total Recall. But in an interview shortly afterward, Farrell hedged on the question.

Now producer Neal Moritz has confirmed that the actor is leading the cast, and given out some more info on the film as well. Read More »

‘Total Recall’ Lead Offered to Colin Farrell

The ‘offer’ story is one of the more useless developments in the movie news business. Because offers go out all the time, and the reason we don’t hear about most of them is that they’re meaningless as news. The offer is part of the process of getting a film made, but until it actually turns into an actor making a deal with a part it isn’t really news. (Even the most famous offer stories, like David Lynch and Return of the Jedi, are only worth a damn as footnote trivia.)

But this one is a little better, because not only has Colin Farrell been offered the lead in the Len Wiseman-directed remake of Total Recall, he’s begun negotiations to take it. Read More »

When they said that Quatto Lives, they weren’t kidding around. Colin Farrell is reportedly at the top of a list that also includes Tom Hardy and Michael Fassbender to star in a remake of the 1990 Paul Verhoven/Arnold Schwarzenegger film Total Recall. We last heard about the project in July when Len Wiseman (Underworld, Live Free or Die Hard) was announced as director of a script by Kurt Wimmer (Salt, Equilibrium) The film will be a “a new, contemporized adaptation of Total Recall, which was based on the story, We Can Remember It for You Wholesale by Philip K. Dick.” We’ve got more after the jump. Read More »

Len Wiseman to Direct Total Recall

total recall

Len Wiseman is in final negotiations to direct a “contemporized adaptation” of Total Recall, which was based on the story, “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick – the book that spawned the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger film. Last year, Columbia Pictures hired Kurt Wimmer to pen the remake. Neal H. Moritz will produce through his Original Film banner (yes, a company called Original Films is in the remake business).

I’m not one of those people that think a Total Recall remake has to be aweful, but signing Wiseman to helm said remake gives me less faith that it is achievable. Read More »

It’s a tribute to the fake products and companies found in movies, and to the filmmakers who didn’t want to sell out or get sued by real corporations. Each logo is accurately recreated in painstakingly detail by Josh Eacret’s hand.
