We've only seen some photos from Len Wiseman's forthcoming remake of Total Recall, the 1990 sci-fi film from Paul Verhoeven based on Philip K. Dick's short story We Can Remember It for You Wholesale. Now this Sunday will bring the first official trailer for the sci-fi flick and we have a tease for it featuring Colin Farrell stepping into the shoes once filled by Arnold Schwarzenegger. However, this time these shoes don't head to Mars with the story following nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai, with Douglas Quaid (Farrell) a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he is a spy, but for which side? Watch!
Here's the teaser for the Total Recall trailer, in HD via Apple, which will premiere online this Sunday:
Len Wiseman (Underworld, Live Free or Die Hard), is directing this Total Recall remake from a script by James Vanderbilt, Kurt Wimmer & Mark Bomback that is said to be more true to Philip K. Dick's original short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. The new story involves nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai, with Douglas Quaid (Farrell) a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he is a spy, although he doesn’t know for which side. Bryan Cranston, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and John Cho also star in the film which is headed to theaters on August 3rd, 2012 towards the end of summer. Excited?
