Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel are said to currently be in negotiations for the female roles in the movie.
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.
The "Total Recall" remake is being directed by Len Wiseman and produced by Neal Moritz.
