Deadline Hollywood is reporting that the Colin Farrell led remake of the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Total Recall may have found its Lori to Farrell’s Quaid in Kate Beckinsale.
The role has been offered to her but she has not officially accepted it as of yet. Rosario Dawson and Eva Mendes are rumored for the part of Melina, Quaid’s love interest.
What does it mean? It’s a bit of a surprise, if only because Beckinsale didn’t read for the part, but she is married to Len Wiseman (who is directing the film) and is a known quantity. That and having her in the role of a villain would be something new as she normally is the romantic lead or killing werewolves & vampires. It’s a bit odd she wouldn’t be offered the role of Melina, if only because she has the background for the part.
She has yet to accept the part, though, so it could change as well.
