Director Paul Verhoeven's sci-fi action film, Total Recall, will be back on the silver screens this summer. A future dystopia based on author Philip K. Dick's matter-of-factly titled short story "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale", the storyline now takes place on Earth instead Mars, where the outcome of a global power struggle between Euroamerica and New Shanghai rests on one lowly factory worker. Sitting on the director's chair of this new remake is Len Wiseman, the man behind the Underworld franchise. Colin Farrell takes the lead role of Douglas Quaid/Hauser, made famous first by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Actresses Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, along with Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy, Ethan Hawke, and John Cho will all take part in the new film. Scheduled to be in theaters on August 3rd, Sony Pictures just unveiled the teaser ahead of the first official trailer this weekend.
