Jessica Biel Offered One Of The Two Female Leads In Total Recall Remake
Last week, a list of actresses vying for the one of the two female leads in the Len Wiseman-directed remake of Total Recall emerged. Today it seems as though a frontrunner has emerged.
Variety reports that Sony has offered Jessica Biel one of the two lead female roles in the project, though negotiations are not yet underway. Biel would either play Lori, Douglas Quaid's (Colin Farrell) wife who ends up being a spy who tries to kill him, or Melina, a resistance fighter who helps Quaid take down an evil politician named Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston).
While Biel is certainly quite beautiful, she has yet to really prove herself as a capable actress. I really hope that either talks fall through or she ends up playing Lori instead of Melina. This is a clear cut case of less is more.
