Kate Bosworth, Diane Kruger, Eva Mendes Reading the Role of Lori in Total Recall Remake

Kruger-Bosworth-Mendes, Total Recall Diane Kruger and Kate Bosworth have read for the role of Lori; Paula Patton, Jessica Biel, and Eva Green have read for Melina, and Eva Mendes has read for both roles in Len Wiseman’s remake of Total Recall. Colin Farrell is starring in the role originated by Arnold Schwarzenegger who started out the 1990 Paul Verhoeven-helmed original. His wife Lori was played in the original film by Sharon Stone that really launched her star. Martian freedom fighter Melina was originally played by Rachel Ticotin — the woman who helps the protagonist get to the bottom of the futuristic scandal on Mars. Colin Farrell landed the lead role a few months before over the likes of Tom Hardy and Michael Fassbender, but there hasn’t been the zeitgeist movement on the film since then, despite the film’s been binding towards its May start date and landed a key 2012 summer release, where it’s currently set to go opposite  The Bourne Legacy. While most of the actors involved have done good work in the past, especially Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) and Green (Perfect Sense), there’s something of a lack of imagination at work here. Especially Kruger and Bosworth (Little Birds) seem to be the answer to the question of which female thespian looks most like Sharon Stone 20 years ago. More news will come sooner rather than later as to who’s landed the roles, but most are unattached to other projects, except  of Green, who starts filming on Tim Burton‘s Dark Shadows shortly, which might well put her out of the way. Total Recall will hit theaters on August 3rd, 2012. Do you think any of these actresses would be better than the others? And how do you think this remake will influence on Colin Farrel’s future status?
