There will be a three-breasted woman in this remake! Listen to interview with Total Recall’s screenwriter Mark Bomback

“It’s not a remake,” screenwriter Mark Bomback says of the new film Total Recall, starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, and Jessica Biel which releases in theaters August 3.   It’s a film basked on the Philip K. Dick short story about a man who realizes a memory has been imbedded in his brain but now he doesn’t know what is real and what isn’t.

“This is a futuristic Bourne in a sense,” says Bomback, who originally shied away from taking the job to write this movie. He wasn’t sure if what the producers wanted to do made any sense. He remembers telling them he didn’t think he was right for the job. “The original film did a really good job of telling that story,” he says he told producers. Bomback also added that the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone film of the same name was considered a cult classic among fans of the sci-fi genre. Big shoes to fill. Schwarzenegger-sized shoes.
