Bokeem Woodbine in talks to star in Total Recall
If he signs on, Bokeem Woodbine will play the best friend to Colin Farrell's Quaid, who has developed a big-brother sort of relationship with him. We reported in March that Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston was "locking down" the villain role in Total Recall, but it still isn't clear if that deal was finalized.
We also reported last month that Kate Beckinsale has been offered the role of Lori, Quaid's wife in the reboot, although it isn't known if she has started negotiations yet. Lori was portrayed by Sharon Stone in the original Total Recall. Jessica Biel was also reportedly offered a major female role in the remake last month, most likely Melina, who was played by Rachel Ticotin in the original.
Len Wiseman is directing the Total Recall from a script by Mark Bomback and James Vanderbilt. It isn't known when production will start.
Total Recall was released August 3rd, 2012 and stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Bokeem Woodbine, Bill Nighy, John Cho, Will Yun Lee. The film is directed by Len Wiseman.
