It was Sharon Stone’s most famous role before “Basic Instinct”, now Kate Beckinsale has been offered the role of Lori in the remake of “Total Recall” at Sony Pictures reports Deadline.
In the Paul Verhoeven directed 1990 original, Lori (Stone) was the happily married wife of Douglas Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) who turns out to be a plant of the villain Cohaagen (Ronny Cox) and girlfriend of his main enforcer Richter (Michael Ironside).
Though not mentioned amongst the candidates for the role of Lori, the offer isn’t surprising considering the remake’s director Len Wiseman is both her husband and she has worked with him on several “Underworld” films. Beckinsale is currently shooting “Underworld 4: New Dawn”.
The project kicks off filming next month in Toronto with Colin Farrell as Quaid and Bryan Cranston as Cohaagen. Jessica Biel has also joined the cast.
