Inside Total Recall with Colin FarrellColin Farrell returns to action films with a starring role in the 2012 version of Total Recall directed by Len Wiseman (the Underworld films). Farrell plays a factory worker who escapes his life by visiting Rekall, a company that turns dreams into actual memories. And in this interview courtesy of Sony Pictures, Farrell discusses the film’s plot. He also talks about the set, his big fight scene, and what sets Total Recall apart from other films of its genre.
Watch the interview:
Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.
