Colin Farrell will star in the “Total Recall” remake, and Arnold Schwarzenegger has some interesting advice for making this version even better: more boobs!
According to Total Film, there is finally confirmation that Colin Farrell will be taking over the governator’s role for the “Total Recall” remake (which, amazingly, will not be done in 3D. Apparently producer Neal Moritz doesn’t have a problem with doing a remake of a movie that was just fine the way it was, but he take issue with going too over-the-top with 3D technology. Way to keep it classy, Hollywood). The “Total Recall” remake will stay truer to the book the original was based on, “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale”, and there will be no space travel this time around (it kind of sounds like there’s going to be some kind of alternate universe or dimension involved instead, and I get the feeling that we won’t see any of the fun cheese factor that helped make the first one so memorable).
Colin Farrell already has experience in the world of remakes, thanks to his role in “Fright Night”, but a TMZ paparazzo seemed keener on Arnold Schwarzenegger using his experience from the first movie to reprise his role in the “Total Recall” remake. The camera-carrying guy ran into Arnold Schwarzenegger on the street and suggested that he could replace Colin Farrell using the same technology from “Tron: Legacy” that turned back the clock for the Dude, but Arnold Schwarzenegger didn’t seem too thrilled with the idea of going on another virtual vacation.
Of course the paparazzo had to bring up the legendary woman with three boobs from the first film before Arnold Schwarzenegger drove away (this time parking ticket-free), and Arnold Schwarzenegger left him with a real zinger: maybe the remake should have a character with four boobs instead of three (ingenious!).
So will those involved with the “Total Recall” remake use his idea? Well, since it seems like they’re totally remaking the original, I kind of doubt they’ll want to have another character with multiple boobs, but perhaps they’ll come up with a more unusual futuristic prostitute for the remake.
