wow, they really have run out of ideas.
I like Total Recall anyway, leave it alone.
I thought Total Recall was a decent movie, but I can't believe they're wanting to create a remake. That's just stupid.
The second half of Total Recall was especially poor. If you read the original short novel by Philip K Dick, then you'll realise it has the potential to be something far more interesting and relevant to these times. I see nothing wrong with updating it... and I'm sure it won't be called Total Recall.
Complete Recall? Absolute Recall? Almost All Recall?
It depends on how they remake it and the audience it's targeted at. Adult smart paranoia thriller or lots of running around, explosions and pod chases. In the hands of someone like Michael Bay, it could be appalling.
I submit: Total Regurgitation
If Michael Bay did it, it would also be a 3 hour movie. I do like the Bad Boys movies, but I agree, he does add too many explosions.
Yawn, come on Hollywood. These films were great years ago. Can't you just go out and make good new films?
Forgot It All.
No. Their budgets for good scripts and directors went to special effects and popular (talentless) actors.
Do any new actors even come from legitimate theater anymore?
Total Recall was great for it's time. I liked The Thomas Crown Affair too, but it could have been titled Rene Russo's b00b's since they were in every other scene. I guess what I'm saying is if the same guy does the Total Recall remake then it might actually be quite good.

I enjoyed the original for what it was
I am not opposed to a 'remake' as long as it breaks new ground
Woof, Woof - Dawg
Why can't Terry Gillingham do a film of V.A.L.I.S?
It would be fantastic.
Seeing as there was a LOT of artistic licence in Total Recall about the whole Mars part of the plot, I think the least they could do is keep the 3 breasted stripper no matter what they do to butcher the original short-story this time round
It's being rewritten by Kurt Wimmer. The writer responsible for:
The Thomas Crown Affair
So, take that how you will.
Why not just take the original, clean it up, remaster it and rerelease it.
Oh, they'll do that too...
What's next? The Running Man?
As long as they still have the triple-breasted pub babes, I'll be happy.
Only "The Thomas Crown Affair" and "Sphere" were any good, though not great by any means. This sounds like it will be a horrible remake.
total recall was on the other day in my area. i remember watching a minute or two and thinking how cheesey the effects were back than and how much better they'd be if it were made now... lol. not a bad film but not great either.
Still a tough call. Script projects go through so much reworking that the final product often does not reflect directly on the guy who wins (or, depending on the final product, loses) the game of musical chairs by which the final writing credits are assigned.
The fact that Wimmer also directed Equilibrium and Ultraviolet is probably more telling with regard to what he might have in mind. I don't know, if he has creative input beyond the script his sense of style might be entirely appropriate to a PKD mindf*** story.
Still, the screenplay could change hands three or four times before it ever sees production.
totally agreed. They should just leave these classic oldies as is
That reminds me of Pepcid updating their name from "Pepcid" to "Pepcid Complete." What? Was it incomplete before?
