Sony Pictures released an official synopsis for the Colin Farrell headed reboot of Total Recall today.  While we’ll have to wait till August to see if director Len Wiseman can top the origianl, we can read this to tide us over.

“Total Recall” is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

I’m certain this means we’ll get a trailer soon, and while I can’t say I’m too pleased with the idea of this reboot, Farrell’s other recent remake of Fright Night paid its respects to the original and just tried to modernize it without topping it.  Here’s hoping this will do the same.

That doesn't look like Mars, will it at least have a 3 breasted alien hottie? Yep.
