Jessica Biel Close to Grabbing One of the Lead Female Roles in TOTAL RECALL Remake

Len Wiseman’s (Live Free or Die Hard) remake of Total Recall may be close to casting one of the two lead female roles. Variety reports that Jessica Biel is circling one of the roles opposite Colin Farrell in the remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger starred sci-fi film. The two roles in the original, Lori and Melina, were played by Sharon Stone and Rachel Ticotin respectively. Apparently early word was that Biel was going after Melina, but the trade says that there’s a chance she’s going after the other character. Other actresses reading for the roles include Eva Mendes, Diane Kruger and Kate Bosworth.

Bryan Cranston is set to play the villain in the remake. When producer Neil Moritz sat down with Steve a while ago, he stated that this film is closer to Philip K. Dick’s book than the 1990 film was, and in the remake they won’t be going to space (which is kind of confusing, given that a major plot point involves Mars). Further plot details are scarce, and at this point we don’t even know what villain Cranston is portraying. Nevertheless, the addition of Cranston to the cast automatically puts this in my “must-see” category. Total Recall hits theaters August 3rd 2012.

    Whilst Cranstons name places this in the “must see” pile, every other aspect leave it in the “don’t touch it with someone elses” category I’m afraid.

    Anyone noticed how remakes are”much closer to the book” than thier predecessors, because it was the books success that spurred the idea of a remake…

    can’t wait for movie to come out if Jessica will be in it…

    …”in the remake they won’t be going to space (which is kind of confusing, given that a major plot point involves Mars).”

    Read the original story and you won’t be confused. Doug Quaid never leaves the planet. The Mars stuff was completely invented in the Schwarzenegger movie.

    Try reading the original story and maybe you won’t be confused. It all takes place right here on Earth. The Mars stuff was completely invented in the Schwarzenegger movie. Personally, I welcome a take that is closer to Dick’s original vision, and an everyman who is actually an everyman, and not some giant steroid-created freak of nature.

    Not sure why all the hating on Jessica Biel… she’s not Megan Fox.

    Cranston does make this a must see and the fact that they’ll be remaking it based on the original story… is not usually a bad thing.

    I’m hopeful.

    Today’s “Studio Big Wigs” in Hollywood seem to be lacking creative Grey Matter, and imagination in their quest for more Box Office Gold—a Remake of TOTAL RECALL, and so soon—what could they be thinking, or not? GBJ
