Farrell was previously tipped a few weeks back, along with fellow hot property actors Tom Hardy (Inception) and Michael Fassbender (Fish Tank).

Total Recall is loosely based on Philip K. Dick’s novelette We Can Remember It for You Wholesale and will be directed by Len Wiseman (Underworld).

Columbia Pictures recently hired Kurt Wimmer (Salt) to write the screenplay, with a release date set for late 2011.

The original, released in 1990, was directed by Paul Verhoeven and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone.
