The remake to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1990 sci-fi classic Total Recall finally seems like it’s on its way.
For many years, this proposed remake has been stuck in pre-production hell, but now it appears the film might actually get made, probably because it’s kind of like Inception.
Len Wiseman, director of the Underworld series, Live Free or Die Hard, and the Hawaii-Five O pilot is in talks to direct the remake for Columbia.
The plot, which is based on a Phillip K. Dick story, revolves around a man who wants to travel to Mars, and buys an implanted memory of a dream vacation to the planet. Hmm…memory alterations? Cough…Inception…Cough.
As the movie progresses, it becomes increasingly unclear as to whether or not our hero is in a dream or reality.
Are you intrigued? If so, you should go see Inception…….and this too when it comes out, we suppose.
