Columbia Moves Forward with New, Contemporized Adaptation of Total Recall

We Can Remember It for You Wholesale (The Collected Stories of Philip K. Dick, Volume 2)
More information about the book

In a press release today (read it on /Film), Columbia Pictures announced that Len Wiseman is in negotiations to direct the Kurt Wimmer-written film adaptation of the short story We Can Remember It for You Wholesale by Philip K. Dick, effectively moving the project forward after being somewhat in limbo for 16 months or so now. A classic sci-fi thriller, it was originally made into the 1990 film Total Recall starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Studios today are loathe to use the word "remake", so Columbia is calling this "a new, contemporized adaptation" based on the film, but, somewhat oddly, not on the source material.
