Bryan Cranston cast as the villain in Len Wiseman's Total Recall remake
The remake of TOTAL RECALL will soon have a villain in Bryan Cranston.
Cranston is currently in negotiations for the role opposite Colin Farrell. BREAKING BAD and MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE fans rejoice! I've always had a soft spot for the original and with this casting addition along with Farrell, it's getting harder to resist. Even if I just see it for shits and giggles...
Speaking of the original, it was based on the Phillip K. Dick story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale". The film, "followed a man haunted by a recurring dream of journeying to Mars who buys a literal dream vacation from a company called Rekall Inc., which sells implanted memories. The man comes to believe he is a secret agent and ends up on a Martian colony, where he fights to overthrow a despotic ruler controlling the production of air."
With that refresher, 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 will play Vilos Cohaagen, "the leader of Euromerica who, under the cover of protecting his people, is secretly readying an invasion of New Shanghai." Ronny Cox played Cohaagen in the version from 1990.
So they won't be getting their asses to Mars? Instead it's Euroamerica. I think Cranston would have made a great Richter as well.
