Total Recall reboot

Man, I know I say this a lot, but on the list of movies that desperately needed gritty reboots, was Total Recall really one of them? Whether it was or not, we now have our first promotional image for the film, which is being directed by Underworld veteran Len Wiseman. In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, Colin Farrell says the film will be “less jokey” than the original. I’m not saying the original was a cinema classic or anything, but the weird tone it took certainly helped define it (well, that, and that mutant prostitute). Removing that aspect for the reboot seems, like the thought of a reboot itself, rather worrisome.
