Ethan Hawke has joined Len Wiseman’s upcoming remake of Total Recall.  The film stars Colin Farrell as a factory worker who begins to believe he’s a spy for either the nation stat Euromerica or New Shanghai, but he doesn’t know which.  The movie is based on the Philip K. Dick story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale” and was loosely adapted back in 1990 as an Arnold Schwarzenegger action movie directed by Paul Verhoeven.  The movie has ditched the concept of going to Mars because I guess as a country we’ve given up on that dream.

Heat Vision reports that Hawke’s role is being kept under wraps and that it’s a cameo in nature.  I’m not exactly sure why you’d cast Hawke in a cameo when he wasn’t in the original film, but I’m not going to argue against his participation.  The film also stars Bryan Cranston as villain Vilos Cohaagen, and Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel are in talks to play the female leads Lori and Melina, respectively.  Total Recall opens August 3, 2012.
