They’ve run out of 80s movies to remake, so they’ve switched to the 90s, or so it would seem with news that the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi hit Total Recall is to be remade.
Columbia Pictures is reported to be “final negotiations” with producer Neal H Moritz to develop a “contemporary version” of the movie.
According to The Register, Moritz, whose previous credits include I Am Legend and Prison Break, expressed the hope that “advancements in technology and state-of-the-art visual effects can help tell the Recall story in a fresh way”.
The original movie was based on the Philip K Dick story We Can Remember It for You Wholesale.
No word yet on who will star in the Total Recall remake.
