After carousing a list of potential female leads, Variety is reporting that Sony Pictures may be close to landing Jessica Biel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Blade: Trinity) for one of two female leads for its Total Recall reboot.
Biel is circling a role opposite Colin Farrell in the pic. Sony has offered her the role but no discussions are underway. It’s unclear which role she would play.
In the original 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger starrer, the femme leads were played by Sharon Stone, who played Lori, and Rachel Ticotin, who played Melina.
The film follows Douglas Quaid, a man who believes he is a secret agent and ends up on a Martian colony where he fights to overthrow a ruler controlling the production of air.
There was early buzz that Biel was going for the role of Melina but sources say there’s a chance she going for the other character.
Len Wiseman will direct the latest version, with Farrell stepping into the Schwarzenegger role and Bryan Cranston attached to play the villain. James Vanderbilt penned the screenplay.
