Yet another big named beauty is in the running to hop aboard the upcoming Columbia Pictures’ remake of Total Recall. She’s fought vampires, decimated lycans, and even survived the wretched doldrums of the most boring white-out imaginable. Why not get a little action on Mars?
Deadline is reporting that Kate Beckinsale (pictured right) has been offered one of the female lead roles alongside Colin Farrell in the Sony Pictures remake. Beckinsale has been offered the role of Lori, who was portrayed in the 1990 Paul Verhoeven-directed actioner by Sharon Stone.
The original 1990 movie, based on the Philip K. Dick story We Can Remember It for You Wholesale, was about a man haunted by a recurring dream of journeying to Mars who comes to believe he is a secret agent and ends up on a Martian colony while the new story involves nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai.
Total Recall is being directed by Len Wiseman and produced by Neal Moritz and his Original Film banner. The redux will be landing in theatres on August 3rd, 2012.
