John Cho the latest actor to join the questionable Total Recall remake

05.27.2011

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.

First version of the film left me saying to myself: "Marshall Bell has nice abs."

Why questionable remake? The 'original' deviated a lot from the book; so if this follows the book more closely what's the harm? It's not as if we're remaking Citizen Kane by the way - TR was a great film for its day but I don't think it has dated that well.

So does this mean we will have a robot with three tits instead of a mutant.

To be fair...

I would much rather see a 'Total Recall' that is faithful to Phillip K. Dick's story and done with care for the material.

Could someone please explain to me how a director like Wiseman was able to bring these great actors into this remake. The guy is like McG or Ratner, the only projects I see them attached to are sequels or reboots of movies, tv shows, etc. Most of which were disappointing.

aww someone is still bitter about Live Free or Die Hard. His only other movies are the 2 Underworld movies, not a fair comparison especially to those 2 hacks.

I can give this film a fair shot. They had me at Bryan Cranston and the ladies.

Great cast, it's a shame they're killing the movie with endless plot changes.

John Cho should be in more movies.

He was one of my favorite parts in Star Trek.

"Use your head you dumb bitch!"

"He's just acting out the secret agent portion of his Ego Trip."

I think they are going more for a karate kid remake than a normal remake,you know a retelling than a straight update,it worked really well for TKK in which jaden smith out acted macchio 10 to 1 at half the age. I think people will be really surprised with this film as it has even less animosity than the karate kid remake did.
