We can reboot it for you wholesale

Colin Farrell is reported to star in Total Recall, a second film adaptation of Philip K. Dick's We Can Remember It for You Wholesale. Producer Neal Moritz claims it will be more faithful to the original story than was the Schwarzenegger version by the same name.

That said, his diabetes enducing enthusiasm is somewhat less than encouraging.

“I think the world that Len Wiseman is creating is incredible. It’s a real world, a real future world, where the cities have just gotten so overcrowded that the cities are just built up, up, up, up. It’s just everything I see on the movie, every pre-vis I see on the movie, every conceptual drawing on this movie that I see just makes me more and more excited. We’re playing it like a real world, but there’s all these technological advancements to the real world, and it’s just really, it’s cool. It’s an awesome movie. I’m dying—as a fan of movies, more than anything, it’s a movie that I’m just dying to see.”
