Jessica Biel: 'Total Recall ripe for remake'

Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)
A remake of the 1990 sci-fi action film of the same name, starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biel & Ethan Hawke. Like the original, this reboot is inspired by the famous short story "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" by Philip K. Dick. For factory worker Douglas Quaid (Farrell), 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 as he finds himself on the run from the police.

Jessica Biel thinks 'Total Recall' was due a remake.

The 29-year-old actress is set to star alongside Colin Farrell in a modern version of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, but she admitted not everyone is happy about the film being recreated.

She told WWD.com: "It's ripe for a remake. There are two camps, some who want a remake and some who think it should be left alone."

Jessica is set to star as prostitute Melina - who was previously played by Rachel Ticotin - in the motion picture, which will see Kate Beckinsale take up the role of Sharon Stone's old character Lori, with Len Wiseman directing the project.

The sci-fi movie, which is based on the book 'We Can Remember It for You Wholesale' by Philip K. Dick, tells the story of a construction worker Doug Quaid (Colin) who thinks he is a secret agent.

Producer Neal Moritz recently revealed the latest adaptation of the film will follow the novel more than its predecessor.

He said: "It's closer to the book, the big different is we don't go to space. Instead of it being a spaceship that takes us to another planet, there's something that takes us from one side of the plane to another that's really interesting."
