    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...
