More Total Recall Casting: John Cho to Play a Smooth Talker
And one more actor has joined the ranks of Len Wiseman's Total Recall redux: John Cho, better known as Harold of Harold & Kumar and as Demetri in the short-lived "FlashForward". He's signed to play McClane, a smooth-talking rep for the mind-messing company that tempts Colin Farrell’s Douglas Quaid to implant fantastic memories into his brain.
Joining Farrell and Cho in the film, which starts shooting in June in Toronto, are Bryan Cranston as the villain with Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel as the female leads, Quaid's wife and revolutionary girl friend, respectively, according to EW.com. Bokeem Woodbine portrays Quaid's best friend, Ethan Hawke is on board for a cameo, and Bill Nighy is apparently still in negotiation for the role of Quatto, the leader of the resistance.
The movie ditches the Martian storyline from the original pic and instead involves nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai. Farrell's Douglas Quaid is a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he is a spy — although he doesn't know for which side.
The remake will be landing in theatres on August 3rd, 2012.
