Last we heard about the remake to Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1990 sci-fi classic Total Recall, Inception had just come out, and all we could think was…these movies are pretty similar!
They may seem even MORE similar if lead role candidate Tom Hardy gets cast as our hero, Quaid, although it looks like the frontrunner right now is Colin Farrell.
The movie is scheduled to start shooting in late March with Underworld's Len Wiseman directing.
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, but that dream becomes…a NIGHTMARE! (cue maniacal laughter).
As much as we always love the opportunity for some Tom Hardy in our lives, we think Colin Farrell could def pull this one off.
Remakes are always tricky fare, but after Inception, we're still kind of innerested in exploring the concept of "Dreams Vs. Reality."
What about U? Does this appeal to U? Or have U had enough with movies that explore this subject?
