    Default Bryan Cranston to play villain in remake of "Total Recall"

    Bryan Cranston to play "Total Recall" villain - Yahoo! News

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) Bryan Cranston is negotiations to play the villain in a remake of "Total Recall" that will star Colin Farrell.

    The original 1990 movie, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone, followed a man haunted by a recurring dream of journeying to Mars who buys a literal dream vacation from a company called Rekall Inc., which sells implanted memories. The man comes to believe he is a secret agent and ends up on a Martian colony, where he fights to overthrow a despotic ruler controlling the production of air. It was based on a Philip K. Dick story, "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale."

    The new story involves nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai, with Douglas Quaid (Farrell) a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he is a spy, although he doesn't know for which side.

    Cranston would play Vilos Cohaagen (a role originally played by Ronny Cox), the leader of Euromerica who, under the cover of protecting his people, is secretly readying an invasion of New Shanghai. Len Wiseman will direct the Columbia project.

    While racking up Emmys for his work as a methamphethamine manufacturer in AMC's "Breaking Bad," Cranston has been working steadily in film. He is currently on screens with Matthew McConaughey in "The Lincoln Lawyer" and has Tom Hanks' "Larry Crowne" in the can. He will also be seen with Ryan Gosling in "Drive" and Disney's "John Carter of Mars."

    Hmmm, I'm so tired of all of the remakes...but I love Bryan Cranston.

    When is Breaking Bad coming back?
