Producer Neal H. Moritz talked with Collider about the upcoming Total Recall remake and confirmed Colin Farrell will star as the main character, Douglas Quaid, and offered some plot details including a more updated film start date of May 15 in Toronto.
Neal H. Moritz said:
"We’re not gonna do Recall in 3D, we decided that it would be too much."
"I think the world that Len Wiseman is creating is incredible. It’s a real world, a real future world, where the cities have just gotten so overcrowded that the cities are just built up, up, up, up. It’s just everything I see on the movie, every pre-vis I see on the movie, every conceptual drawing on this movie that I see just makes me more and more excited. We’re playing it like a real world, but there’s all these technological advancements to the real world, and it’s just really, it’s cool. It’s an awesome movie. I’m dying-as a fan of movies, more than anything, it’s a movie that I’m just dying to see."
"It’s closer to the book [Philip K. Dick’s "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale"], the big difference 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 planet to another that’s really interesting."
Total Recall comes to theaters in 2011 and stars Colin Farrell. The film is directed by Len Wiseman.
