Total Recall

The last bit of major casting we heard for the remake of Arnold Schwarzenegger's sci-fi action flick Total Recall had Kate Beckinsale pegged as one of the female leads set to collaborate again with her husband and Underworld director Len Wiseman. Now Collider has confirmed that Beckinsale has officially joined the cast, and that Jessica Biel has taken the other major female role in the remake. Beckinsale will play Lori, the wife of Farrell's protagonist character while Biel will play Melina, another character who might know him better than Lori. In addition, Heat Vision has learned Bill Nighy (Love Actually) has also signed on.

Nighy will play Quatto, the leader of the resistance in the story that ditches the original Mars setting of the story for two nation states called Euroamerica and New Shanghai where Farrell, a factory worker, comes to believe he's a spy, but he doesn't know for which side. In the original, Nighy's character was called Kuato, and ended up being a vessel being controlled by a small mutant inside of his body. I'm not sure if this film will be as exciting without the science fiction elements from the original, but perhaps some will still be there if it takes place in a distant future. We'll have to wait and see. Thoughts?

Awww shit.I was looking forward to this with the Mars setting. Regardless I'll keep an eye on this, as the cast sounds great and I've loved every character  Farrell has done recently (I think he's going to be the best part of Horrible Bosses).  OPEEEEEEN YOUR MIIIIIND OPEEEEEEN YOUR MIIIIIIIINDD

No Mars? then this will be a complete revision I guess. Nighy as Quatto = Excellent choice. wonder if Farrell will say my favorite line "Hahaha, you think this is the real Quaid?IT IS."{BOOM}

The only reason I'll even consider seeing this is Kate Beckinsale.

How does Biel keep getting work?

Sounds like they may have gone back to the source material (We Can Remember It For You Wholesale by Phillip K. Dick).  In the novella, he doesn't go to Mars in the course of the story, but does have memories of it.
