Ok, here are the facts for this one. Colin Farrell plays the Doug Quaid Arnie role, Len Wiseman (Underworld) directs, his wife Kate Beckinsale takes on Sharon Stone’s role, and the impressive cast list also includes Bill Nighy, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Ethan Hawke and John Cho.
Oh, and it won’t be going to Mars! Sorry did I forget to mention that fact? The single most important story arc in the original movie! Oh well…
That being said however, I am a huge fan of the original and I am definitely looking forward to this. Colin Farrell is always good value, and the cast in general is great, but still I’m not entirely convinced that Len Wiseman is up to the job. Although I’m happy to be convinced otherwise.
We have a US release date of the 3rd August 2012, and a UK date of 22nd August. No Australian date announced yet.
