First Glimpse At Reimagined ‘Total Recall’
Pictured above is the first picture to make its way online from the upcoming remake of the 1990 scifi film Total Recall.
Colin Farrell takes over the role as Douglas Quaid originally made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
According to EW, “Farrell describes the movie as ‘much less jokey’ than the 1990 version. He claims that the tone will be completely different than what we saw in the past. There’s not as much tongue-in-cheek,’ he says.”
It’s not the only change audiences can expect.
The original set much of the movie’s action on Mars, which is something the remake will not do. Instead, the focus will be on two opposing power blocs, Euromerica and New Shanghai, in a futuristic Earth.
The movie is being directed by Underworld’s Len Wiseman, and stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston and Bill Nighy.
Total Recall opens August 3rd 2012.
