Multiple award winning star of Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston, has joined the Colin Farrell led blockbuster remake of Total Recall, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Len Wiseman is directing the film, which will apparently be very different from the Arnie original. It won't be set on Mars first of all, and will instead take place in a part of future earth called Euromerica. Farrell will play Douglas Quaid, a factory worker who the forces that be believe to be a spy. Cranston will be the villain, "a despotic ruler controlling the production of air."

The film will have a mammoth budget estimated by some outlets at $200 million and will shoot in Toronto in the coming weeks. Kurt Wimmer, who previously penned the Farrell starrer The Recruit, has knocked out the screenplay for this one.
