Total Recall Remake May Become 'Reality'
ComingSoon.net (whose logo's font was clearly borrowed from Blade Runner), is reporting that Neal Moritz (whose production credits include I Am Legend) is in final talks to remake Total Recall. This isn't the first time this rumor has surfaced, but I think a quick sampling of the comments over at ComingSoon.net speaks for most of us:

My favorite part of the article was that the people behind the remake is a company called Original Films.

This movie will be nothing without Arnie. Everytime I watch the DVD (which is every few months since it is one of my favorite movies ever) I get chills down my spine at the opening credits. Everything is perfect in that movie. This remake will just take the plot line but put Jason Stateham in instead. I can't see that bald prick pulling off lines like "See you at the party Richter!" or "Consider this a divorce." **** **** **** this is stupid.

Can't stand that Neal Moritz. What's he gonna do? Cast Vin Diesel as the main protagonist with that hack Rob Cohen as director???
Enough with the goddamn remakes please!!!!

I copied this from another board, simply because I feel it's accurate:
It's NOT gonna be a remake of TOTAL RECALL.
It's going to be an adaption of ****'s "I Can Remember It For You Wholesale". Huge difference.
It's like how The Last Man on Earth and Omega Man are both adaptions of "I am Legend".
Most people have never read "I Can Remember It For You Wholesale", much less even heard of it. So it's easier to say it's a Total Recall remake.
