The offer has gone out for Kate Beckinsale to appear in the upcoming remake of Total Recall, Deadline reports.
The film is based on the 1990 Paul Verhoeven adaptation of the short Philip K. Dick story, “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale.” The original starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as Douglas Quaid, a man who, after buying implanted memories of a vacation to Mars, begins to remember experiences tied to an elaborate conspiracy.
Beckinsale would play the part of Lori (Sharon Stone in the original), the wife of the protagonist who turns out to be part of the villainous conspiracy.
Beckinsale is both the wife of the reboot’s director, Len Wiseman, and has worked with him before on the “Underworld” films.
Total Recall is currently eyeing an August 3, 2012 release.
