    "Total Recall" is totally coming back.

    Neal H. Moritz and his Original Films banner are in final negotiations to develop and produce for Columbia a contemporary version of "Total Recall," the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi action movie directed by Paul Verhoeven.

    The original, based on the Philip K. Dick story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale," follows a man haunted by a recurring dream of journeying to Mars who buys a literal dream vacation from a company called Rekall Inc., which sells implanted memories. The man comes to believe he is a secret agent and ends up on a Martian colony, where he fights to overthrow a despotic ruler controlling the production of air.

    The movie explores one of Dick's favorite topics, reality vs. delusion, as audiences never knew whether or not the story was a dream. Either way, the movie grossed a very real $261 million worldwide.

    Carolco was behind the original movie, which was distributed by TriStar. Dimension picked up the rights for a reported $3.15 million with the aim of developing a sequel. Columbia secured the rights from Miramax, which retained them when Harvey and Bob Weinstein left to start their own company.

    Calling Dick's story "prescient," Moritz said he hoped the advancements in technology and state-of-the-art visual effects can help tell the "Recall" story in a fresh way.

    Toby Jaffe is overseeing on behalf of Original Film. Matt Tolmach and Sam Dickerman oversee for Columbia.

    I was wondering about that too. It does look like the one's with the white armor, so maybe it could be a more elite version. Either way I can't wait to see the full fight.

    OOH My:wow:! Thanks for posting those pics Hunter. Man, oh man, Kate Beckinsale looks great. Jessica Biel too.

    Just saw the trailer for this attached to ASM and it looks incredible. I'm a HUGE fan of the Arnold movie...i would go as far as to say Total Recall is in my top favorite movies of all time. Bit disappointed that this is PG-13 though, seeing as how it was hinted at that chick had 3 boobs in the trailer!

    I remember they said in some of the production interviews that there were another higher level of security than than the black & white synthetics. I'm intrigued to find out what this version is, hopefully something unique and elite as opposed to part of a squad.

    :up: They need to do a couple of shoots together like the ones Charlize and Kristen Stewart did to promote SWATH!

    The rating says it contains brief nudity so I think you may get a flash of the boobs, I'm pretty sure brief boobage is allowed in a PG-13.

    Biel may as well be Beckensale and vice versa.

    Or have I revealed some tweest?

    That poster is pretty bad. Colin Farrell looks scared.

    I guess that's their way of making him look as big as Arnold.
