Jessica Biel: 'Total Recall ripe for remake'

June 2nd, 2011

Jessica Biel thinks 'Total Recall' was due a remake.

The 29-year-old actress is set to star alongside Colin Farrell in a modern version of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, but she admitted not everyone is happy about the film being recreated.

She told "It's ripe for a remake. There are two camps, some who want a remake and some who think it should be left alone."

Jessica is set to star as prostitute Melina - who was previously played by Rachel Ticotin - in the motion picture, which will see Kate Beckinsale take up the role of Sharon Stone's old character Lori, with Len Wiseman directing the project.

The sci-fi movie, which is based on the book 'We Can Remember It for You Wholesale' by Philip K. Dick, tells the story of a construction worker Doug Quaid (Colin) who thinks he is a secret agent.

Producer Neal Moritz recently revealed the latest adaptation of the film will follow the novel more than its predecessor.

He said: "It's closer to the book, the big different is we don't go to space. Instead of it being a spaceship that takes us to another planet, there's something that takes us from one side of the plane to another that's really interesting."
