‘Total Recall’ Show Up At Comic-Con, Call Remake A ‘Human Experience That’s Brutal And Hard’ [PHOTOS]
It’s hard to top how over-the-top the original Total Recall was (c’mon, it was the ’80s!), which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, but now played by Colin Farrell. So Len Wiseman’s remake will focus in on the emotional pull of the movie: “That’s what we were continuing to maintain – this human experience is so brutal and hard to deal with, and that’s what special little thing we wanted to keep infusing so that at times it feels like this love story.”
I don’t know if I’ve been sold on the remake, but I admire the cast and crew in not trying to make the same movie twice. If worse comes to worst, at least we’ll have Colin Farrell drawing in crowds!
