First look at Colin Farrell in Total Recall

First look at Colin Farrell in Total Recall

The Film Stage has debuted the first official look at Colin Farrell in Len Wiseman’s (”Live Free or Die Hard”) remake of ”Total Recall” via the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.

Also starring Bryan Cranston & Kate Beckinsale, the upcoming sci-fi remake will rework the plot of the original film (which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger) and is scheduled for theatrical release on August 3rd, 2012.

Here’s the film’s official plot:

Total Recall revolves around the futuristic nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai, with Douglas Quaid (Farrell) a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he is a spy, although he doesn’t know for which side.

Vilos Cohaagen (Cranston), the leader of Euromerica who, under the cover of protecting his people, is secretly readying an invasion of New Shanghai.

In the magazine, Farrell says “the tone will be much less jokey” than Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s 1990′s sci-fi hit. He says, “there’s not as much tongue-in-cheek” and that he wouldn’t feel comfortable delivering lines like ‘Consider dat a divorce!’” We know “the new story involves nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai, with Douglas Quaid (Farrell) a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he is a spy, although he doesn’t know for which side.” Cranston plays Vilos Cohaagen, “the leader of Euromerica who, under the cover of protecting his people, is secretly readying an invasion of New Shanghai.”

Additional cast members include Bill Nighy, Jessica Biel, and John Cho.
