Episode 418: Total Recall (1990)

Special Guest: Gary L. Goldman
Guest Co-Hosts: Jedidiah Ayres, Rob St. Mary

We’re kicking off back to back discussions of adaptations with a look at 1990's Total Recall. Directed by Paul Verhoeven, the film spent years in turnaround until was attached and got the thing made. It's the story of a common construction worker who dreams of life on Mars. When he learns of a procedure that can implant memories of being on Mars, things get a little complicated.

Rob St. Mary and Jedidiah Ayres join Mike to discuss the complicated road which Total Recall took to get to the silver screen as well as the wretched Len Wiseman remake and the strange television spin-off. Screenwriter reveals how he helped shape the film to make it the success it ultimately became.
