Re-call ‘Recall’?

Neil Mortiz & Original Films are working with Columbia Pictures to remake the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi flick. I’m not sure how I feel about this one. On one hand, this movie marked the end of Schwarzenegger’s 80’s action movie run. Before this we saw things like Predator, Raw Deal, Commando, & The Running Man. After this we had two Terminator jems, but mostly it was fluf like Junior, Jingle All The Way and Batman & Robin. So Total Recall has a lot of fond memories for me. In addition, I’m not sure we have a big enough action star right now who can fill the shoes of the memory impaired Douglas Quaid. But, if they go back to the Phillip Dick story the movie was based on & start completely from scratch, not even acknowledging the 1990 movie, we might have something. Especially if they cast a talented unknown with today’s special effects.
