SuperheroHype have got their mitts on this new batch of images of Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel on the set of Len Wiseman’s ‘Total Recall.’ The contemporized adaptation of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger genre classic, is based on the Philip K. Dick story, “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale.” Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel are also joined in the film by Bill Nighy, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston, who’s playing the lead villain, and Ethan Hawke who’s on board for a cameo role. 

The original ‘Total Recall’ followed a man (Arnold Schwarzenegger) haunted by a recurring dream of journeying to Mars who buys a literal dream vacation from a company called Rekall Inc., which sells implanted memories. The man comes to believe he is a secret agent and ends up on a Martian colony, where he fights to overthrow a despotic ruler controlling the production of air. The new story ditches the Martian storyline and instead involves nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai, with Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he is a spy, although he doesn’t know for which side. Vilos Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston) is the leader of Euromerica who, under the cover of protecting his people, is secretly readying an invasion of New Shanghai. Jessica Biel plays Melina, while Kate Beckinsale plays Lori. ‘Total Recall’ is scheduled for release in cinemas August 3rd, 2012. Kurt Wimmer (Salt) has written the screenplay.
