Colin Farrell has emerged as the top contender for the lead role in the remake of the 1990 sci-fi action classic “Total Recall” at Sony Pictures reports Heat Vision.
Based on Philip K Dick’s short story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale”, the new version will be re-conceived as a contemporary take on the story.
Farrell sits just ahead of actors Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy who’re also considered top candidates, but no offers are officially out at present.
Len Wiseman (“Underworld,” “Live Free or Die Hard”) will direct from a script by Kurt Wimmer. Neal H Moritz will produce and filming is aiming to begin around March.
