John Cho has become the latest cast member of the sci-fi remake Total Recall for Columbia Pictures.

The actor will portray McClane, a salesman at Recall who manages to talk Quaid (Colin Farrell) into getting memory implants. The implants go awry, though, and Quaid believes he is a spy, although he isn't sure for which side. The original Total Recall takes place on Mars, although the remake will be set in the fictional countries of Euromerica and New Shanghai.

Len Wiseman is directing Total Recall from a screenplay by Kurt Wimmer, Mark Bomback, and James Vanderbilt.

Production is scheduled to start Monday, on location in Toronto.
