Book Your Trip to Mars: ‘Total Recall’ Release Date

Len Wiseman better get crackin’ as Columbia Pictures has announced that they’ll release Total Recall in theaters on August 3, 2012.

Although it’s never been confirmed, Colin Farrell is said to be filling Arnold Schwarzenegger’s shoes as Douglas Quaid/Hauser.

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.
