Is this idea simply absolutely wrong from the start? Really? Or could it become something like the present TOTAL RECALL reinvention?
Commercials helmer Adam Berg has been signed up to direct the Erhen Kruger scripted revamp. The original movie starred James Woods as a cable television programmer who is drawn into a mystery involving a pirate TV station seemingly featuring snuff movies.
The remake will ‘update’ the concept, turning it into more of a big budget action thriller featuring nanotech. Berg won the Film Grand Prix at the Cannes International Advertising Festival. Kruger has previously written the screenplays for Scream 3 (2000) and the Philip K. Dick inspired Impostor (2001), as well as two Transformers movies.
