Kurt Wimmer Heads to Mars for ‘Total Recall’

Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium, Ultraviolet) has been tapped to write Columbia’s new version of Total Recall. The original (directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger), based on the Philip K. Dick story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale,” follows a man haunted by a recurring dream of journeying to Mars who buys a literal dream vacation from a company called Rekall Inc., which sells implanted memories. The man comes to believe he is a secret agent and ends up on a Martian colony, where he fights to overthrow a despotic ruler controlling the production of air. The studio is keeping mum on the new take, simply calling a “contemporized adaptation.”
