SET VISIT: ‘Total Recall’!

We visit the Toronto set of Total Recall starring Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel The word "remake" has developed more of a negative connotation among movie goers lately, with many fans desperately wanting more originality coming from the Hollywood system. Honestly, when I first heard of the Total Recall remake happening, I was quite skeptical (at best), since I loved the innovative original starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a dude who doesn't fully know who he really is. Last August, I was invited up to the Toronto set of this new sci-fi tale, where all of my fears and doubts were promptly put to rest after speaking with all of the key players involved.

First of all, there will be several aspects of the original that remain intact, like Douglas Quaid's (Colin Farrell) identity issues and Rekall, but this remake is set in a completely different world altogether. Earth is now divided into two huge halves, the United Federation of Britain and New Asia, which are both connected via the massive "elevator" dubbed China Fall. This machine literally takes you to the other side of the world through the center of the Earth, and it factors greatly into the plot, with the final fight sequence taking place atop this structure.
