Shocking: Kate Beckinsale offered a leading role in her husband's Total Recall remake

Apr. 21, 2011by: George Merchan

Not one to shy away from nepotism, stunner Kate Beckinsale (UNDERWORLD 4: NEW DAWN) has reportedly been offered the role of 'Lori' in husband Len Wiseman's TOTAL RECALL remake.

Lori, as you might remember, was portrayed in director Paul Verhoeven's original classic by a then relatively unknown Sharon Stone (who'd soon go on to hit it huge with stuff like BASIC INSTINCT and CASINO). Beckinsale's offer comes about a month after names like Kate Bosworth and Diane Kruger were being tossed about as potential candidates for the role of Colin Farrel's hot but psycho wife.

Meanwhile, an actress for the role of 'Melina', Douglas Quaid's true romantic interest, is still being sought after. Deadline is now saying that the serious contenders for the part of the more exotic lead female are Eva Mendes (LAST NIGHT, THE OTHER GUYS) and Rosario Dawson (ZOOKEEPER, UNSTOPPABLE). Who would you prefer?

TOTAL RECALL gets its ass back to theaters August 3, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: Call me when they cast the three-titted wench, please.

Whoa...

Beckinsale as Lori and Rosario as Melena? Sign me the fuck up!

Can you imagine watching Kate and Rosario in a bitch fight...pulling eachother's hair...moaning wildly...ripping eachother's shirts off....use your imagination for the rest.

Luckily she'll do a good job regardless, but Diane Kreuger would be preferable. And if they don't have the 3-titted wench, Wayne Brady's gonna have to choke a bitch. Hollywood ain't too highfalutin to give us a 3-titted wench! C'mon, baby!

You know it's gonna be PG13...

Wiseman can't direct traffic let alone a film. He gets to shaft Kate Beckinsale though so don't feel sorry for him

This is the only way she can get work. She doesn't have much screen charisma other than being plasticy and generic looking. This movie has absolutely nothing going for it.

I think she makes any movie better. I even thought the movie Whiteout was ok.

She fits the role perfect; as the hot "wife" and as a supporting actress (not a principal role)

I guess this version with Urban will be more "realistic" and not so much "far-out" as the Arnold version. They will each stand on their own then.

My mistake, Colin Farrell it is. Well, Farrell is perhaps even an upgrade. Though Urban does a great Bones. =)

Charlie Sheen should be Kuato!

The Studio: "So, Mr. Wiseman...exactly how long do you plan on bringing your kick-ass yummy wife to the set of the Total Recall remake (to help w/ kraft services or for an "afternoon delight") before you tell her she really isn't in the film at all?"

Len Wiseman: "TWO WEEKS!!!"

Shocker indeed...

Just another example of it's who you know and who you blow, quite literally in this situation. Although I do dig the casting and one of the few excited for this despite being a loyal Arnold follower (his movies, not necessarily his Governership).

Also, I concur with Sulaco down below for Rhona Mitra. Time she got some bigger roles too.

For Melina?

Eva Mendes or Rosario Dawson?

Frankly, I can't picture Rosario Dawson as a cheap prostitute. No offense to her. It's just in that the roles she has taken so far she has been so innocent. Take Men In Black 2, for example. I can't picture her as Melina. So between the two of them I would go with Eva. No offense to her either. (I'm not saying she looks like a cheap prostitute.)
