Kate Beckinsale - Kate Beckinsale Offered Total Recall Remake

Kate Beckinsale - The British actress and star of 'Underworld' KATE BECKINSALE has been offered a role in her husband Len Wiseman's remake of the 1990 sci-fi movie 'Total Recall'. Beckinsale could play the role of 'Lori', originally portrayed by Sharon Stone, reports Deadline.com.
'Lori' is the wife of 'Doug Quaid', played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the first film. She is also the girlfriend of 'Richter', the ruthless deputy from Mars. The Irish actor Colin Farrell has already been cast in the Schwarzenegger role, while Eva Mendes and Rosario Dawson will battle it out to land the role of the freedom fighter 'Melina', originally played by Rachel Ticotin. 'Seinfeld' star Bryan Cranson will play the movie's main villain 'Vilos Cohaagen'. Beckinsale will first star in the action movie 'Contraband', a remake of the Icelandic film 'Reykjavik-Rotterdam', with Mark Wahlberg. The actress left her boyfriend Michael Sheen for the director Wiseman while she was shooting 'Underworld' in 2002. The couple became engaged in June 2003 and were married in Bel-Air, California, one year later.
Kate Beckinsale first garnered international recognition when she was cast alongside Ben Affleck in the 2001 movie 'Pearl Harbour'. Since then, she has appeared in the likes of 'Underworld', 'The Aviator' and 'Van Helsing'.
