Bryan Cranston is Breaking Bad in the Total Recall Remake

The Total Recall remake now has a bad guy, and he's someone who is known to break bad...

Variety reports that, yes, Emmy-winning Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston is in talks to play the villain in the film. Colin Farrell is starring in the Columbia Pictures redux of the Arnold Schwarzenegger action classic.

That 1990 film featured Ronny Cox as the evil Vilos Cohaagen. Michael Ironside also played a not-so-nice guy named Richter who was in pursuit of Schwarzenegger's character Quaid (the real Quaid!).

Heat Vision reports that "The new story involves nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai, with Douglas Quaid (Farrell) a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he is a spy, although he doesn't know for which side. … Cranston would play Vilos Cohaagen, the leader of Euromerica who, under the cover of protecting his people, is secretly readying an invasion of New Shanghai."
