Len Wiseman To Direct Total Recall Remake?
Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard, Underworld) is set to direct Columbia Pictures’ Total Recall. Kurt Wimmer, who has written Equilibrium and Salt, will pen the screenplay. The film will be a new, contemporary adaptation of Total Recall.
Total Recall originally starred the Mayor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and was based on Philip K. Dick’s We Can Remember It for You Wholesale.
“I’ve always been fascinated with Philip K Dick’s short story, and I’m excited at that prospect of diving even deeper into the type of world it evokes and the questions it asks. I love that the most crucial mystery our character is trying to solve is one of his own soul,” said Wiseman.
Producer Neal H. Moritz is delighted to finally work with Wiseman: “Len is terrifically talented and we know he is the right director to re-imagine Total Recall for a new generation of fans.”
