Kate Beckinsale wants to return to romantic comedies

Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)
A remake of the 1990 sci-fi action film of the same name, starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biel & Ethan Hawke. Like the original, this reboot is inspired by the famous short story "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" by Philip K. Dick. For factory worker Douglas Quaid (Farrell), the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man as he finds himself on the run from the police.

Kate Beckinsale wants to return to romantic comedies.

The 'Underworld' actress - who has 13-year-old Lily with former partner Michael Sheen - is known for her action film roles but would love to be offered more romantic comedy parts in the future - if the scripts were funny enough.

Asked whether she would consider making a comeback to the genre, Kate told Total Film magazine: ''I hope so. I really like the idea of doing as many things as possible.

''I haven't done many romantic comedies because I'm a huge snob about comedy and I often don't find them very funny.''

The 38-year old actress currently stars in Len Wiseman's sci-fi remake 'Total Recall' with Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Bill Nighy. She plays Lori, Colin's feisty on-screen wife who helps him run from the police after a memory-altering procedure goes awry.

Kate is delighted with her new role and admitted that big blockbuster roles are few and far between.

She said: ''The ones that make you go, 'Ooh, let me play that' don't come around every two weeks. I'll go months, maybe even years where I don't find something that I want to do.

''And sometimes you go, 'Right that's it, I can't hibernate forever and you do something that isn't your dream job, but gives you something that's interesting.''
