It’s been a big news week for True Detective fans as information about the second season of the critically-acclaimed HBO show has been coming in fast and furiously. (You’ll get that later.) Following up on the recent casting announcement of Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn for two of the series’ four main roles comes word that Rachel McAdams is circling the third. Nothing’s confirmed just yet, but sources say that McAdams is very close to taking on the role. In the meantime, you can tell that True Detective has fully entered the zeitgeist because now it has its very own parody courtesy of Funny or Die! Get your full load of True Detective news below.

It’s taken a long time, and there’s been an awful lost of speculation up to this point, but now there’s been a semi-official announcement concerning the cast of True Detective season 2. You can hardly blame any actor in Hollywood for the hesitancy, True Detective was the smash success of winter and a new prestige hit for HBO, a network known for prestige hits. All that, and the fact that Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are going to be a tough act to follow, would scare even the boldest of actors from being the follow-up act in the new season. But fortune, as they say, favors the bold, and Colin Farrell hopes that this is the case because he says he’s just signed up to lead True Detective season 2. (more…)
As a reminder that Star Wars Episode VII isn’t the only sci-fi/fantasy project casting right now, it seems that a pair of leads are being courted for the highly-anticipated World of Warcraft movie. Deadline is reporting that if all goes according to plan, then Colin Farrell (Total Recall) and Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) will headline the movie based on the massive online role-playing game.
The rub, according to Deadline is that they’re not sure that “Farrell is going to make a deal–sources said it’s 50/50.” So Farrell may not end up being in the film after all, but perhaps he’s the frontrunner and preference of director Duncan Jones for the part. Patton, meanwhile, is said to be in negotiations for a lead role, as Jones tests other potential leads in case Farrell doesn’t work out.
In the meantime, Warcraft is still on schedule to start shooting this January in Vancouver for a 2015 release date. The project is set up at Legendary Pictures, and although no studio is attached yet, it’s widely expected that the film will be released through Legendary’s new partner, Universal.
More news as it develops.
Total Recall is a film about a ho-hum factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) who, on the recommendation of a co-worker, decides to visit a company called Rekall. In Rekall, they basically plug you into a machine that can give you the memories of any life or fantasy that you desire. Want to think that you were a rock star and have actual memories of living that life? No problem, just pay up and plug in. The only catch is that you’re not supposed to have them implant memories of a life that you already live. If you are already a spy in real life, they won’t implant additional fake memories of a spy fantasy, or it could cause a drastic brain overload, and then God kills a puppy…or did my mom tell me that after the time she caught me…nevermind. Anyway, guess what happens to poor old Doug! After he essentially gets his mind scrambled, Doug spends the rest of the movie trying to figure out what’s real, who he was, who he is and who he should be, not to mention who he should trust. It’s a great concept, but the movie left much to be desired with the follow-through.
There were some ups, some downs…some more downs, and way too much Colin Farrell. I do have to give credit where credit is due, though, so let’s start out with a spoon full of sugar before the medicine goes down.
If you missed the Total Recall clip that aired on “The Ellen DeGeneres” the other day, fear not true believer, NerdBastards has the clip and a couple of new Three Boobed Hooker (Kaitlyn Leeb) pictures from SDCC2012.
This just might be the summer’s palat cleanser after we all suffer the after effects of The Dark Knight Rises. Maybe this action packed thrill ride . . . Sony Pictures words not mine, can help.
Total Recall hits theater screens on August 3rd, starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston, and Jessica Biel.
Anyone familiar with the 1990 version of Total Recall will undoubtedly recall (no pun intended) the 3 breasted mutant hooker; the one Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character surprisingly didn’t fuck. When that triple chested whore appeared on screen, men were given a fantasy of breasts they never knew they wanted. I mean come on, 3 breasts? What a novel idea! Oh, this reminds me of a funny story. This one time, in a strip club in Canada, I got a lap dance from a girl with 3 nipples. At least I think it was a third nipple. It could have been a slice of pepperoni. Regardless, that’s the closest I’ve ever come to living out my Total Recall triple tit fantasy. It was amazing! But I digress…
Will the Len Wiseman‘s adaptation of Total Recall feature a three-boobed woman? I had heard reports that it was real, that it was actually happening. But in the latest trailer for Total Recall, we finally get to see the three-breasted mutant woman for ourselves. Yippie!
Besides the triple chested tramp, this looks pretty good for a reboot. Wiseman can stage some good action sequences and it looks like he’s gone all out here. I’m actually looking forward to it.
The August 3 release is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.
Another television spot for Len Wiseman’s Total Recall remake has hit the Internet and you can watch it below. For those of you that have no idea what Total Recall is . . . don’t worry, we’re not gonna make too much fun of ya. Check out the synopsis below to bring yourself up to speed.

After the jump, we’ve got the first TV spot for Len Wiseman‘s Total Recall reboot. While it doesn’t have any new footage it still makes this movie look a lot better than I expected it would be. Yes, still holding out for a tri-boobed hooker, but even if that doesn’t make it into this new non-Mars based version of Philip K. Dick‘s “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale,” it still looks like it might be a fun little flick. It Stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and opens on August 3rd. (more…)
The latest international trailer for Len Wiseman’s Total Recall remake has hit the ‘net and boy howdy, does it look like the last one. Sure there is a small sprinkling of new footage if you really want to scour it frame by frame, but it still left me with an empty feeling.
Don’t get me wrong, I will fully admit this version of the classic Philip K. Dick short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale looks like a great sci-fi movie, it still depresses me a little inside. No, this is not some old nerd pining for the original… ok, maybe it is a little.
Is a 3 boobed hooker just to much to ask for these days?
Check it the trailer after the jump.
A few days ago, we shared with you the trailer for Total Recall. And suffice to say that it was fuckin’ awesome.
In a rare move, director Len Wiseman got together with MTV and recorded a director’s commentary on the trailer. Yes, you read that right. He did a commentary of the trailer. It actually helps to provide some neat insight into the process. I suppose this means we can expect a director’s commentary when the DVD comes out.
Check out the trailer with his commentary below. The film is out in theaters on August 3, 2012 and stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy.
