It seems that a remake of an Arnold Schwarzenegger 90s classic has found itself a writer. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kurt Wimmer has signed on to write the remake of Total Recall for Columbia Pictures.
The original, which was based off the book "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" by Phillip K. Dick, starred Schwarzenegger as a man haunted by visions of Mars and, after getting a virtual Mars vacation from a company called Rekall, goes to Mars himself to fight with rebels trying to win back control of the air supply.
Neil H. Moritz is producing the remake and, although plot details weren't given on the remake, it was said to be a, "contemporized adaptation." Wimmer also wrote the upcoming films Law Abiding Citizen and Salt, which is currently filming.
