Wimmer Penning Total Recall Remake


Columbia Pictures has set Kurt Wimmer to write Total Recall, the remake of the 1990 film that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, reports Variety.

Wimmer has been working with the studio on Salt and co-wrote the upcoming Law Abiding Citizen. Wimmer’s credits include The Thomas Crown Affair, Equilibrium and Ultraviolet.

Total Recall was resurrected for remake earlier this year by the studio and producer Neal Moritz and his Original Films. The film will be a contemporized adaptation of the sci-fi saga based on the Philip K. Dick story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale.”
