Total Recall remake gains Bryan Cranston, but loses Mars

Bryan Cranston joins the cast of Total Recall

Emmy-winning actor Bryan Cranston is negotiating to play the villain in the upcoming remake of Total Recall. That’s the good news.

The other news? According to Heat Vision, the new version of the story will not take place on Mars like Philip K. Dick’s original story (“We Can Remember It for You Wholesale”) or the 1990 film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Instead, the script for the new film involves a battle between the nation-states Euromerica and New Shanghai.

Cranston will play Vilos Cohaagen (same name as the villain in the 1990 film), who in this version is the leader of Euromerica and is planning to invade New Shanghai.
