For any fans out there who liked the original story which was based on the Philip K. Dick novelette, We Can Remember It for You Wholesale. Don't get your panties in a wad, because the new film ditches the whole Martian storyline,and instead will be closer to Philip K. Dick’s original version.
According to The Hollywood Reporter.com, the movie has been casting up ahead of its June start in Toronto with Bryan Cranston playing the villain. Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel are currently in negotiations for the female leads. (I'm pulling for Kate Beckinsale)
Total Recall is being directed by Len Wiseman and produced by Neal Moritz. The remake will make it's way into theaters on August 3rd, 2012.
