This is the first look at Colin Farrell as Doug Quaid in the Len Wiseman directed remake of Total Recall.
They are ditching Mars in this Earth bound adventure that is meant to be sticking closer to the Philip K Dick short story, We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. I’m not sure if it is Wiseman’s involvement (he directed Underworld and Die Hard 4) but I am not as excited about this as I thought I would. The Schwarzenegger version is a classic so this remake has a lot to live up to.
The image reminds me of a 1992 film called Freejack. That one starred Emilio Estevez, Mick Jagger, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins. I think there must be a similar scene (I’ve tried looking but can’t find a pic) that has hit a memory. I’m not sure.
The Total Recall remake just appears to be a bit generic looking at the moment.
