Who's Writing "Total Recall" Remake? You May Recall Him 


As we told you in February (click here for the full story), "Total Recall" is being remade. We now know who the writer is going to be.

As far as the plot? Columbia Pictures is saying that it's going to be a "contemporized adaptation" of Philip K. Dick's story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale," the same basis of the original "Total Recall" film.
