With Colin Farrell signed to take over the role originated by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Total Recall remake, the next question was: who would play the ladies in his life? Well, now we know.
Collider reports that Kate Beckinsale has officially been cast as Lori, the wife of Douglas Quaid (Farrell) in the “real” world, while Jessica Biel will play Melina, the woman he meets in his “other” life as a spy. The roles were played by Sharon Stone and Rachel Ticotin respectively in the 1990 original. There’s no real surprise about Beckinsale’s casting: she was rumored for weeks to have the role, seeing how she’s married to director Len Wiseman, with whom she’s also collaborated on the Underworld films.
