SDCC 2011: TOTAL RECALL Street Display Awesomeness

We were up late walking around the Gaslamp District of San Diego last night, and saw a few people start setting up am awesome street display for the upcoming Len Wiseman film Total Recall. As you can see the display includes a futuristic police cruiser with some high tech police officers. While were were standing around watching this get all set up Guy Pierce came walking around which was pretty cool, the poor guy ended up getting mobbed by a ton of people, but he was nice enough to sign autographs and take pictures with his fans.

The film was written by Kurt Wimmer, Mark Bomback, and James Vanderbilt, and also stars Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bill Nighy, Ethan Hawk and Bryan Cranston. Farrell plays Douglas Quaid, a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he is a spy, although he doesn't know for which side. The movie will ditch the Martian storyline from the original pic and instead involves nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai.

Here are a few more details for the film that were offered up in EW from Ferrell,

“the tone will be much less jokey” than Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s 1990′s sci-fi hit. He says, “there’s not as much tongue-in-cheek” and that he wouldn’t feel comfortable delivering lines like ‘Consider dat a divorce!’” We know “the new story involves nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai, with Douglas Quaid (Farrell) a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he is a spy, although he doesn’t know for which side.” Cranston plays Vilos Cohaagen, “the leader of Euromerica who, under the cover of protecting his people, is secretly readying an invasion of New Shanghai.”
