Total Recall remake

06.02.2009

We were warned, and they meant it. A new version of Paul Verhoeven's wondrously violent sci-fi mindjob TOTAL RECALL is on the way. It's nearly a whole two decades old, and therefore requires a hot new cast and loads more CGI!

Writer Kurt Wimmer (EQUILIBRIUM, upcoming SALT) will be helping you remember it wholesale with what is only being described as a "contemporized adaptation" of the original Philip K. Dick story. Columbia and producer/noisemaker Neal Moritz (STEALTH, XXX) are plugging you into Rekall for some painful memory eradication.

The original modern classic starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as an average Joe/Quaid/Hauser whose implanted memory "vacation" uncorks his real personality as a secret agent. So he travels to Mars and meets a chick with three boobs, an irritating cabbie, a machinegunning midget whore and a guy with a greasy puppet in his chest, and then he slaughters almost everyone in sight and/or saves the planet.

You blabbed, quaid!

Hollywood needs an earthquake under its ass to stop all these fucking remakes of classic movies. Really, really sick and tired of great movies being "rebooted", etc. Fucking ridiculous.

Seriously some movies need to be remade to reflect the update in special effects when that helps the story become more realistic and acceptable, but seriously, LEAVE TOTAL RECALL ALONE!! If this shit gets remade Ill end up in jail for killing a studio exec, and that cant happen cause "I got fiiive kids to feed!"!!!

I have no problem with it.


I was never a big fan of "Total Recall" as it was made at the pinnacle of the dumb action/dumber jokes era.

As with any movie, it's not so much a matter of source material as it is good filmmaking. We shall see.

As for the recommendation that "The Dark Knight" be remade, I'm TOTALLY behind that. I'm clearly in the minority here but that is one of the most disappointing movies of the decade.

I think they should remake The Dark Knight, why it's been out a whole year so it's due for a remake. All these classic action movies I grew up with are getting remade, how depressing. Oh we need a remake of The Godfather as well. We can have Zac Efron play Michael Corleone, give it a PG-13 rating and add a few dance numbers.......kill me!

Cool

I'm generally not too adverse to remakes. Sometimes there are good ones, sometimes there are bad ones. Haven't you ever watched a film and thought, man that story had such potential but they just took it the wrong direction?

Total Recall. One of my all time favourite action flicks (Up there with Robocop, Die Hard and Mission: Impossible...yes M:I). It'll be tough rekindling the magic that Verhoeven and Arnold brought to the project but hopefully they keep the same attitude. It depends on

It'll be tough rekindling the magic that Verhoeven and Arnold brought to the project but hopefully they keep the same attitude. It depends on three things, Cast, Director and R-Rating.

...Oh and isn't Running Man basically been remade into Gamer?

I hate to say this, as I'm not really in 'favor' of Hollywood being less creative and all, but...

If you don't like the remake... let it come out and just watch the original? It's not like they're erasing all copies of the original.

Enough.

I've been quiet far too long and I think enough is enough. Stop the remakes, stop the rumors about remakes. As soon as they re-adapted [REC] I lost all faith in Hollywood.

I DON'T LIKE THE IDEA OF ALL OF MY FAVORITE CLASSICS BEING REMADE!!! NO CROW AND DEFINITELY NO TOTAL RECALL!!! BAD HOLLYWOOD! BAD!

The only way they could justify remaking 'Total Recall' is if we see a CG, four-boobéd hooker. Heck, throw in an extra tit for good measure.
