Opening this Friday is director Len Wiseman‘s remake of Total Recall. Based on the short story We Can Remember It for You Wholesale by Philip K. Dick, Total Recall stars Colin Farrell in the role originated by Arnold Schwarzenegger. In the film, Farrell stars as Douglas Quaid, a man who is bored with his life (even though he’s married to Kate Beckinsale) and seeks to have adventurous memories implanted in his brain. However, after visiting Recall, both friends and family are after him for different reasons. But the big problem is he doesn’t know what’s real. The film also stars Jessica Biel, John Cho, Bill Nighy, and Bryan Cranston.
The other day I got to speak with Bryan Cranston here in Los Angeles. We talked about his reaction to the finished film, his experiences at this year’s Comic-Con, deleted scenes, The Lincoln Lawyer sequel, and Breaking Bad. For fans of Breaking Bad, Cranston told me, “episode 5 of the fifth season is the biggest episode we’ve ever done as far as scope and cost.” Hit the jump to watch.
