Talk of a remake of Total Recall has been ongoing over the last few years but the project finally appears to be taking shape. One big step is settling on who will take over the lead role that was played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1990 original.

The top name on the list reportedly is Colin Farrell with interest also in Tom Hardy and Michael Fassbender should a deal not be worked out. The movie is being described as a new, contemporized adaptation of Total Recall which was based on the story We Can Remember It for You Wholesale by Philip K. Dick. Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard, Underworld) is locked in to direct.
