Official Total Recall Plot Details Make Their Way Online. Or Are We Just Dreaming It?

So the question beckons... just how different will this new version of Total Recall be in comparison to the blast that was the Arnold Schwarzenegger running rampant on Mars flick? Pretty damned different. Read on for your first look at the official synopsis.

Len Wiseman directs the film based upon the Philip K. Dick tale We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston and Jessica Biel star.

The remake will be landing in theatres on August 3rd, 2012.

Total Recall is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) whom he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred, and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

I'm excited and quite curious to see the footage. Hoping for a teaser in front of Underworld this weekend.

Over-stylized, CG-filled PG-13 fun! Oh, yay!
