Colin Farrell leading contender for “Total Recall” remake

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Is Colin Farrell about to get his ass to Mars?

He will if he wins the role of Douglas Quaid – a part made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger – in a planned “Total Recall” remake.

Farrell leads a list of candidates that includes Tom Hardy (“Inception”) and Michael Fassbender (“Inglourious Basterds”), according to the Hollywood Reporter. Len Wiseman of “Underworld” and “Live Free or Die Hard” would direct the remake, which is looking to begin production early next year.

Schedules likely will go a long way to deciding who is available for “Recall.” Farrell is up for “By Virtue Fall,” with Eric Bana, but could finish in time to join the “Recall” shoot.

But Hardy, whose currently shooting “This Means War” with McG, has been attached to Christopher Nolan’s third “Batman,” and no one expects him to jeopardize that for a chance to headline a remake of a Schwarzenegger flick.
