Casting is heating up for Columbia Pictures' Total Recall remake, with several actresses reading for two prominent roles. Kate Bosworth and Diane Kruger are reading this week for the role of Lori, while Eva Mendes and Paula Patton will read for the role of Melina.
In Paul Verhoeven's original 1990 Total Recall, Lori was played by Sharon Stone, the dutiful wife who turns out to be a spy for the agency. Rachel Ticotin played Melina, who helps Arnold Schwarzenegger's Douglas Quaid go along with the Resistance. Jessica Biel and Eva Green are also being considered for Melina and it is mentioned that Eva Mendes may be up for the Lori role as well.
Production is scheduled to start on May 15 in Toronto.
