Lest you forget we're remaking Total Recall--"for a new generation of fans"--Columbia Pictures has announced their choice for who will direct this "contemporized" take on Philip K. Dick's We Can Remember It for You Wholesale. Len Wiseman, the man who brought us Die Hard 4 and every fucking one of those Underworld films is reportedly in final negotiations to direct this re-imagining. In the press release, Wiseman declares his fascination with the original story, and loosely promises to dive deeper into its world and themes--while maintaining the name Total Recall, of course, because no one's going to see some shit called "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale." Give me a name I can remember from a couple decades ago!
By the way, if you haven't yet discovered Netflix or Hulu or Downloading Things or any of these movies-at-home services, now would be a great time to look into that and never go to the theater again.
