Total Recall recalled

Prepare to get your ass back to Mars. Sony Pictures is looking to relaunch a remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger classic TOTAL RECALL. Producer Neal Moritz (FAST & FURIOUS, I AM LEGEND) will develop the film which will be more of a readaptation of Philip K. Dick's story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale," than a remake of Arnold's film (though the contemporary version will keep the TOTAL RECALL title). The rights to a sequel were, oddly enough, held by Miramax who had bought them from Carolco when Bob and Harvey Weinstein were around. The current Miramax regime was obviously never going to make a TOTAL RECALL movie so Sony-based Columbia was able to pick up the rights to the project.

The idea of a TOTAL RECALL remake almost immediately upsets because of, well, how awesome the original is. But I'm guessing they're going for a completely different tone than Verhoeven's somewhat tongue-in-cheek version. But really isn't that what made the original so appealing?

Extra Tidbit: Consider that a divorce. See you at the party Richter. Screw you! I could do this all day....
