Total Recall’ Reboot Coming Soon


The 1990 sci-fi action film ‘Total Recall’ starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is getting a reboot in 2012. This time the former California governor’s role is reprised by Hollywood bad boy Colin Farrell opposite Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel. Sony Pictures Entertainment shows the movie trailer on Sunday during a regular season game between bitter rivals Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat take place in the National Basketball Association (NBA) on ABC.

Farrell plays Douglas Quaid, a blue collar worker married to Lori played by Beckinsale. Quaid goes on a virtual vacation offered by Rekall. As in its original version, Rekall offers dreams in real life memories to its customers. The twist to the plot begins when the procedure on Quaid goes awry and he becomes a hunted man.

The reboot version of ‘Total Recall’ may also remind movie fans of ‘The Fifth Element’ for its futuristic production design and the1982 Harrison Ford-starrer sci-fi film ‘Blade Runner’ for its neo-noir appeal.

The film opens in August, possibly in a head-on collision with ‘The Expendables 2’ and the latest ‘Bourne’ film.
