Open your mind to Bill Nighy as the new Kuato in the remake of Total Recall

05.25.2011

British actor Bill Nighy is no stranger to genre material -- he's had his face replaced with CG tentacles, transformed into a zombie, and ruled the vampire hierarchy.

Now he's going to potentially wear more prosthetics when he leads the resistance as Kuato (or "Quatto", as Heat Vision spells it) in the remake of TOTAL RECALL, which has Colin Farrell taking over for Arnold Schwarzenegger as implant-triggered superspy Douglas Quaid.

But this time around, Quaid won't be getting his ass to Mars. The new version takes place in futuristic nation-states Euromerica and New Shanghai, with Farrell as a factory worker who begins to believe he is a spy -- although he doesn't know for which side.

The movie reunites Nighy with his UNDERWORLD co-star Kate Beckinsale, who will play Quaid's wife (or at least the agent inserted into the role). Jessica Biel will be playing the action-ready "other woman", the freedom fighter Melina.

Beckinsale's director-hubby Len Wiseman (LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD) is remaking Paul Verhoeven's own violent version of Philip K. Dick's sci-fi story. "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston plays the villain now, and Ethan Hawke has an undisclosed role.

Request:

Can Nighy play both the host and Kuato himself? And can he basically still be himself in both cases? I would love that...

You know what their biggest mistake is gonna be on this remake?

Getting the tone right. They're not gonna inject enough, if any, humor. It most likely will look and feel like The Bourne Identity in the future.

Nighy is always a good addition to any cast, but this film should still not be-remade--good cast, or otherwise. "OPEN your mind....open your mind!!"

I love Nighy. This is pretty good cast for a remake of what was a mediocre film aggrandized by much (my own included) posterity. But this needs to be on Mars! If Philip K Dick wrote the story about Mars, put the movie on there.

We Brits are quite a reserved bunch of people. In all my years of watching movies at the cinema, Total Recall is the only movie where the audience applauded at the end. Sure, there will be applauds at Premieres, but this was a regular Saturday night screening.

This remake is a terrible idea. The original was such a perfect drinking game that there's no way this is even going to compare... even with the awesome Billy Nighy.

Drink every time someone says Mars. Oh man that scene where Arnold repeatedly says "Get your ass to Mars," kills me every time.
