Total Recall remake (2011-2012)

Kurt Wimmer is being tapped to write the script. For a while now there has been talk of remake of the science fiction shoot em up. Wimmer is best known for writing and directing the cult film Equilibrium. The only issue I have with this is that they are going to ignore the original film's future setting for a more contemporary film. It's bizarre that they wouldn't want to bring back the colony on Mars, mutants and alien/futuristic technology. While it's not known who is set to direct, I could see Wimmer himself directing. Philip K. Dick's material is very difficult to adapt to film for every Blade Runner we get a Next or Impostor. I'd rather they make a large scale budget remake of Screamers but that's just my opinion.
