John Cho the latest actor to join the questionable Total Recall remake
The TOTAL RECALL remake has assembled an impressive cast - Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, Ethan Hawke and Bill Nighy - even as the film itself sounds less than impressive. But yet another actor we like and respect has joined the ever-expanding cast in a familiar role. John Cho has signed on to RECALL as McClane, the sales agent who convinces Douglas Quaid to sign up for the Rekall program.
Ray Baker played the role in the original film, though it's mostly a small part. It's unclear if Cho's role will be beefed up for the sequel.
The remake won't take place on Mars and will instead have Quaid working in a futuristic United States in a robot factory (yes, the film will feature robots instead of mutants). How this will explain Kuato, a little dude growing out of the stomach of another dude, remains to be seen.
In fact, there's much that remains to be seen about this TOTAL RECALL remake. Like why they'd rename their version of Kuato to Quatto. It's such an arbitrary and pointless change but, I suppose, that's indicative of this entire movie.
