Colin Farrell: Plays role of Arnold Schwarzenegger in 'Total Recall' remake
Popular actor Colin Farrell has discussed the upcoming remake of Total Recall.
Colin stars as a construction worker who begins to suspect he's a spy, after a harrowing experience with memory-altering company Rekall – a role played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1990 original.
"I found it continuously challenging, not just in a physical way, but in an emotional way and in an intellectual way," Farrell told Total Film. "Hopefully that comes across.
"I'm playing a man who's told his life isn't what he thought it was, the people in his life aren't who he thought they were and he isn't who he thought he was."
"The whole film then is a journey from this man awakening to the ideas of identity and past and being robbed of everything you were and everything you believed, without even knowing what these things are.
"So, there were plenty of existential questions for me to think about."
Other artists like Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and Ethan Hawke also star in the film, which is directed by Underworld helmer Len Wiseman.
