Coming soon: Total Recall remake

July 30, 2010 16:15 IST

Filmmaker Len Wiseman is set to create a modern remake of the 1990 action classic Total Recall, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Movie studio executives at Columbia Pictures secured the rights to the sci-fi thriller last year and hired Salt writer Kurt Wimmer for the updated screenplay.

According to The Daily Express, Wiseman has now been approached to direct the blockbuster.

The film is about a man who believes he's a secret agent and is haunted by a recurring dream about travelling to Mars, according to the Los Angeles Times.
