    Colin Farrell to replace Arnold Schwarzenegger?






    Colin Farrell has been offered the lead part in Len Wiseman’s ‘Total Recall’ remake, but will he accept?



    1990′s R-Rated sci-fi adventure film Total Recall is another item on the infinitely growing list of remakes. Poised as a different retelling of Philip K. Dick’s short story and to be directed by Len Wiseman, Total Recall is on the verge of getting its new leading man.

    Wiseman made public his wishes for Irish star Colin Farrell to star as construction worker Douglas Quaid three weeks ago and while growing stars Tom Hardy and Michael Fassbender have been mentioned for the part, Sony has reportedly offered the gig to Farrell.

    Variety has the exclusive that Farrell received the offer last week and is currently in negotiations with Sony for the role. Should he accept, Colin Farrell will be to Arnold Schwarzenegger (for Total Recall) what Karl Urban is to Sylvester Stallone (for Judge Dredd) in sci-fi/action remakes.

    Paul Verhoeven’s Total Recall is based on the Philip K. Dick story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale,” and tells the thought-provoking and imaginative story of construction worker Douglas Quaid who frequently has vivid dreams of traveling to Mars. This inspires Quaid to purchase a virtual vacation to Mars (it’s the year 2084 and they can implant memories) and the process triggers memories for Quaid of who he really is. Now on the run and remembering he’s an agent named Hauser, Quaid makes his way to Mars meeting apparent friends and foes of old. But in the end, viewers are left wondering if it was all a big dream or a virtual memory.

    The Total Recall remake is based on a script from Kurt Wimmer (Salt, Equilibrium) and Farrell’s addition to the cast would offer an entirely different set of character traits than Schwarzenegger brought audiences through his inter-planetary journey. Farrell’s profile and career has taken a positive turn in recent years with award-worthy performances in Crazy Heart and In Bruges to name just a few, and I’m sold on the idea of him as Wiseman’s leading man.

    Stay tuned for more as we hear it on story and casting for Total Recall. Expect it to hit theaters in 2012.

    the thing is most younger people have no concept of the originals and will still pay to see this like it's the first one or original.....think of how many young people think Puff Daddy was original and not dubbing everyone?

    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    I though Farrell was funny as hell in In Bruges the scene where he tells the fat guy his family is a bunch of elephants when asked if the tower is open and walking up it. then the turd chases him around. Then the slob goes up the tower anyway and has a heart attack. Great movie. Any movie with hookers and a racist midget has got to be good.

    It seems like, at least, half of the movies coming out anymore are remakes. Don't anyone have any new ideas?

    But Total Recall was a remake of PK Dicks book, in fact a whole bunch of Movies since the beginning are just remakes of books or plays or actual events, the trick is if they can create a different way of seeing something old or re-awaken in younger audiences the awareness of an Artist like PK Dick(who has inspired me greatly after I learned he was the writer of what led to Total Recall back in the 90's I started reading all of his work), hopefull some kids have the same impressions for the remake...

    First Official Still From Total Recall Features Colin Farrel As Quaid

    First Official Still From Total Recall Features Colin Farrel As Quaid

    We have already seen some set pics, but here is the first official look at the Total Recall remake which also gives us our first look at Colin Farrel as the character Arnie played in the original, Doug Quaid..


    The pic comes from the latest issue of EntertainmentWeekly, from which we have also aggregated about 450 Spidey pic from today too! Anyway In the mag Farrel says..

    "The tone will be much less jokey” than Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s 1990′s sci-fi hit. He says, “there’s not as much tongue-in-cheek” and that he wouldn’t feel comfortable delivering lines like ‘Consider dat a divorce!’”

    Aww, I was looking forward to hearing that! Here is the official synopsis and cast list..

    "Welcome to Rekall, the company that with one little implant can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Doug Quaid (Colin Farrell), the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his ordinary existence. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. With the line between fantasy and reality blurred and the fate of his world hanging in the balance, Quaid goes on the run to discover his true identity, his true love, and his true fate. Based on Philip K. Dick’s classic story “I Can Remember It For You Wholesale,” this brand new take on some of his most visionary ideas is directed by Len Wiseman and stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, John Cho and Bryan Cranston."

    I fucking hate Farrel, but if you guys haven't seen Tigerland it is very much worth checking out. It is about basic training during Vietnam and was a kick ass movie. I think it was his first one, and probably why everyone suddenly thought he was great. After that....a bunch of shit, but that one was good.

    New Pic Of Karl Urban As Judge Dredd

    New Pic Of Karl Urban As Judge Dredd

    Bleeding Cool have been sent a new snap of Urban as ol stoney face himself. It's dark so as to obscure some of the detail, but pretty cool nonetheless. Check it out..


    This looks to be an official still, which doesn't make to much sense considering the last one we received looked like THIS. Why shade in the detail if we have seen the full helmet/costume already? Anyway, nice to have another pic, things have been fairly quiet on the Dredd front lately.

    Here is a (probable) detailed plot synopsis. Mild spoiler warning..

    In a future where Earth has become a radioactive wasteland, 98% of the Human Population is concentrated in the Mega-Cities, where the law is enforced by the Judges, a police force entitled to act as jury, judge and executioner. The best Judge there is is Dredd (Karl Urban), who operates in Mega-City 1.

    One day, Dredd is assigned to train recruit Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), who had previously failed the Judge Academy, but received a second chance for being a mutant with heightned psychic abilities that might be useful. The duo is deployed to investigate a triple homicide in the block of Peach Trees, a violent area ruled by Madeline "Ma-Ma" Madrigal (Lena Headey), a sadistic drug dealer who has put a new substance in the market: Slow-Mo, a drug that alters its user's brain's chemics, making it appear as if time is in slow-motion.

    Dredd and Anderson discover about Slow-Mo and raid one of the dealing points, capturing one of Ma-Ma's men in the process. In order to prevent him from being taken to the Judges' headquarters, where he'll surely crack under interrogation, she has her skilled team of Hackers cut Peach Trees of the grid and activate the Nuclear Attack continency program, isolating Peach Trees inside a titanium dome. Ma-Ma then puts a bounty on Dredd's and Anderson's heads: Either they die, or the dome doesn't get lifted.

    Completelly stranded inside a hostile environment where everyone wants them death, Dredd and Anderson have to find a way to escape and put a stop to Ma-Ma's plans before she is able to expand her turf over the other blocks, effectively becoming Mega-City 1's number one drug dealer.


    Dredd is directed by Pete Travis and will hit theaters sometime in 2012.

    Judge Dredd was one of the worst movies of it's time, think I walked out after like 30 minutes.
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    That's ridiculous. Arnold is not replaceable in any of his movies. It won't be anything close to the original. I've been to the movies maybe twice in the last two years. It's all regurgitated crap. Everything new that comes out is garbage. Even the new pop stars that come on the scene these days are just manufactured props like Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake. They have no talent and even $100K worth of studio equipment doesn't hide that fact.

    Not a good sign.

    Director Pete Travis Off DREDD

    Director Pete Travis Off DREDD

    Even though the movie is now in post production, the director of the Judge Dredd reboot has been asked to step away from any further involvement. Click for the details..


    Well this may explain the lack of any footage or real promotion for Dredd which we were expecting to see quite a while ago. Word is that the director of the movie, who has already shot it, has been asked to leave the editing and post production to others.



    From The LATimes..

    Although he completed shooting the picture earlier this year, Travis has not been involved in the current editing phase of the movie, after creative disagreements with producers and executives in charge of the film reached a boiling point, said three people with knowledge of the production who asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to speak about the situation publicly. Instead, the editing room is now being run by a writer-producer on the film, the screenwriter Alex Garland, the people said.

    Apparently Garland may now seek a co-director credit on the movie too since he has done the lions share of the work since Travis left the project. Details on exactly why Travis was asked to step away are sketchy but according to the LA Times it was "when Travis and producers and executives in charge of the production did not see eye-to-eye on footage Travis was delivering". The blog also mentions that re-shoots are a possibility. This type of thing is rare, but not unheard of. Lets just hope that we still get a good movie out of all of it.

    Getting yanked around by bad reporting...

    Pete Travis NOT Off Dredd After All?

    Pete Travis NOT Off Dredd After All?

    Well, at least not according to Alex Garland and, er, Pete Travis. The La Times have updated their original story with a statement from the duo that cites an "unorthodox collaboration" for the confusion..


    Fans feared the worst when word from The LA Times suggested that director Pete Travis had been asked to step away from the already finished shooting Dredd and locked out of the editing process. But now the site has update their story and if we go by Garland and Travis they seem to have gotten the wrong end of the truncheon..

    Travis and Garland released a joint statement that read, "During all stages of the filmmaking, 'Dredd' has been a collaboration between a number of dedicated creative parties. From the outset we decided on an unorthodox collaboration to make the film. This situation has been misinterpreted. To set the record straight, Pete was not fired and remains a central part of the collaboration, and Alex is not seeking a co-director credit. We are all extremely proud of the film we have made, and respectfully suggest that it is judged on viewing when its released next year."

    They could just be downplaying this of course but for now we should take their word. I find when wires have been crossed like this the truth lies somewhere in the middle. I wouldn't be surprised if Travis is still on board in some capacity but there were arguments about the way the final film should come across and he probably had final word on the edit taken away. Of course that's just my guess! One way or the other it has to be seen as a relief that things are still moving forward.

    DREDD Star Olivia Thirlby Hopes Her Portrayal of Judge Anderson Doesn't Disappoint Fans

    DREDD Star Olivia Thirlby Hopes Her Portrayal of Judge Anderson Doesn't Disappoint Fans

    While Olivia is promoting her new movie, The Darkest Hour, she was kind enough to tell Movie Fone about why she decided not to watch Sylvester Stallone's Judge Dredd.


    Olivia Thirlby may not be on your radar at this point, but she is started to getting bigger and better roles of late. You might recognize her from Juno, when she played Ellen Page's best friend, who flirted endlessly with over-the-hill teachers. Or, you might recognize her from United 93, which I like to refer to as the movie that had no business being made so soon. Little long, and not so catchy of a title, but much more honest.

    Anywho, she is starring in The Darkest Hour, which is opening up Christmas Day. Hmmm, let's see stay at home and open presents, get wasted on some sweet eggnog, or go to the movie theaters to see another alien invasion movie? Hmmm that is quite the quandary. Truly a toss-up. I'll have to consult my magic eight ball on that one.



    So you've got 'The Darkest Hour' and the 'Dredd' coming out. Were you a big sci-fi geek growing up?

    To be honest, I wasn't a sci-fi geek at all. But I do love a good sci-fi film, especially one that can really take you away. And I read some reality-bending novels growing up, like stuff by [Kurt] Vonngeut, so I already had one part my brain open to the unnatural and unusual, and it's generally fun to venture into that world and film in it.

    Did you even bother watching the original 'Judge Dredd' movie with Sylvester Stallone, or did you want to go in with a clean slate?

    I actually didn't watch the original one intentionally, and I still haven't. But I think that at this point, it's not an intentional choice. I am excited to see [the original], and whenever I have the chance [I will]. But during shooting, I decided not to watch it, just because the film we were making really has nothing to do with it, and I didn't want to get influenced by it at all.

    With 'Dredd' -- and to a certain extent, 'Being Flynn,' based on 'Another Bullshit Night in Suck City' by Nick Flynn -- do you feel more pressure because both of them have an established fan base?

    Yeah, definitely. Of course, the Nick Flynn fan base is very different from the '2000 AD' fan base [laughs]. It's a little daunting [for 'Dredd'], where I am personifying a character which already exists very firmly in people's minds, and that people have an attachment to and have an affection for. But my hope is that people respond to it and they feel that it's something that complements their imaginations and the ideas that they already had built up, instead of conflicting with them. All I can do is hope and pray that I won't be disappointing anyone.

    Synopsis - DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.

    Dredd will hit theaters September 21st, 2012

    HOLY $H!T!!!!

    I thought you meant WILL FERRELL when I first read this!



    It took me almost a whole minute of looking at the picture to realize the difference....

    Still sucks it's no one on par with Arnold but FCK am I stupid! I'm actually relieved now!
    Well hello Mister Fancypants. Well, I've got news for you pal, you ain't leadin' but two things, right now: Jack and shit... and Jack left town.
