"Total Recall" is a remake of Paul Verhoeven's 1990 science fiction/action epic about a man haunted by a recurring dream of a visit to Mars.

As he investigates, he remembers being a secret agent who fought against the evil administrator of Mars.

The new version is expected to be closer to Philip K. Dick's short story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale."

Variety first reported the news.
