“Total Recall” remake adds Bill Nighy to cast


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Len Wiseman’s “Total Recall” remake continues to take shape.

The sci-fi action thriller, which casts Colin Farrell as a factory worker who begins to suspect he’s a spy in a futuristic society, just added Bill Nighy to its growing cast, THR reports. The Brit will play Quatto, the infamous leader of the resistance. Nighy’s a regular player in Wiseman’s ensemble, having participated in the “Underworld” series. He’ll join Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston and Jessica Biel in the film, which reportedly begins shooting in Toronto next month.

“Recall,” of course, was a very popular vehicle for Arnold Schwarzenegger. At one point, it was believed a cameo from the former Governator would be worth its weight in gold. Now it would probably tarnish a promising production.

The “Recall” remake will be in theaters next year.
