Len Wiseman To Direct Total Recall Remake

A director has been found to helm a Total Recall remake. Yup, you might know of him as being Kate Beckinsale’s husband, or the guy who directed/produced the Underworld movies. He also directed Bruce Willis in Live Free or Die Hard.

JoBlo reports:

Columbia has anointed Len Wiseman to helm the project, which looks to be an Arnold-free reimagining of the Philip K. Dick story. “Len has an incredible love of the genre and a great gift for action. He’ll bring a contemporary feel to the film while taking care with everything we love about Philip K. Dick’s original story.”

Moritz said, “I have been trying for years to work with Len and fortunately we finally found a great project that he loves as much as we do. Len is terrifically talented and we know he is the right director to re-imagine Total Recall for a new generation of fans.”

Wiseman added, “I’ve always been fascinated with Philip K. Dick’s short story, and I’m excited at that prospect of diving even deeper into the type of world it evokes and the questions it asks. I love that the most crucial mystery our character is trying to solve is the one of his own soul.”

I don’t know, Total Recall is one of those films that shouldn’t be touched. I mean, it’s considered one of the best sci-fi movies ever. But, since everything old is making the money now, it was bound to happen. Maybe, I’d feel more comfortable if they do a totally different take on Philip K. Dick’s short story. Regarding Wiseman, I don’t believe he is a great director, nor a horrible director. I’m surprised the studio wouldn’t want a greater director tackling this remake.

What do you guys think? You want them to touch Total Recall? Who should’ve been named director then?
