Columbia Pictures to remake Total Recall. Yes, seriously.

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.
