For those of you who were concerned, like me, about the Total Recall remake looking virtually nothing like its predecessor, you’ll have some reason for good cheer thanks to some word from Len Wiseman, who said that some of the original’s “iconic moments” would be back in the remake.
Featuring Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel on the terror hottie front (not to mention one of my personal favorite actors, Bryan Cranston), this time we’re not going to Mars, but rather pitting Euromerica and New Shanghai against each other, and our old boy Douglas Quaid finds himself in the midst of Euromerica wondering if he’s a spy…and for whom. The rest of the film will have him trying to figure out just who he’s really working for, if anyone.
Not too far off from the original, I suppose, though they should have left well enough alone, I’d say. The original was some pretty good stuff, so why not stick to the original formula? While we don’t know just what moments from the original will be coming back, it will be kind of interesting to keep an eye out for them, little Easter eggs for the longtime fans. Keep it here for all the latest on this one, which is set to hit August 3rd.
