Bryan Cranston Gets Villainous for 'Total Recall'

Columbia Pictures’ Total Recall just got a whole lot cooler to me as “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston is in negotiations to play the villain opposite Colin Farrell in the Len Wiseman directed sci-fi pic, scripted by Kurt Wimmer.

Michael Ironside played “Richter” in the 1990 flick.

The original, 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.

Columbia hopes to have it ready for launch on August 3, 2012.
