TOTAL RECALL Reboot Headed To Toronto For March Start Date

Production is underway for the Total Recall reboot from Len Wiseman and Columbia Pictures. Filming is set to begin in Toronto this March!

Recall will be shot based on a script by Kurt Wimmer, with Neal H. Moritz producing through his Original Film banner. The original source material is based on a story by  Philip K. Dick called  “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale”. The story is about a man with recurring dreams of traveling to Mars so he buys a literal dream vacation from a company called Rekall Inc., which sells implanted memories. Something goes terribly wrong with the implant and he believes he is a secret agent fighting to overthrow a despotic ruler controlling the production of air.

Here is an excerpt from the story at The Hollywood Reporter;

“Len Wiseman will direct Total Recall based on a script by Kurt Wimmer, with Neal H. Moritz producing through his Original Film banner. The project, based on the Philip K. Dick story, portrays a man haunted by a recurring dream of rocketing to Mars. Total Recall is just the big budget Hollywood shoot that Ontario has been looking to draw to the city. Pinewood Toronto Studios has recently hosted movie shoots like Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Thing, and Dream House. But it’s the vfx-heavy studio projects like Total Recall that Ontario has been looking to draw away from Vancouver and Los Angeles, which have been in the hi-tech soundstage business for far longer than Toronto.”
