Columbia Confirms Total Recall Remakeby Contributor | 26 February 2009
A remake of classic ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER sci-fi movie TOTAL RECALL is planned.
Columbia Pictures will be working on the project with Neal Moritz' Original Films, despite rumours of there being a sequel on the books.
The original TOTAL RECALL was based on a Phillip K Dick short story, We Can Remember It For You Wholesale, and was directed by PAUL VERHOEVEN, grossing $261 million (£182 million).
In the film, a man dreams of journeying to Mars and visits Rekall Inc, which sells implanted memories.
SCHWARZENEGGER's character begins to believe he is a secret agent, travelling to the planet and fighting the tyrant who controls the colony.
The Hollywood Reporter reports: "The movie explores of one Dick's favourite topics - reality versus delusion - as audiences never know whether the story was a dream."
In other news, SCHWARZENEGGER, currently the governor of California, will be starring in SYLVESTER STALLONE's new flick, THE EXPENDABLES.
