With shooting starting next month in Toronto, casting for TOTAL RECALL keeps pouring in. The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively reported that Bill Nighy is currently in talks to join the cast of TOTAL RECALL. Nighy will be playing Quatto, the leader of the resistance. His character was known as Kuato in the 1990 original.
Nighy joins the cast of Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston, Kate Beckinsale, and Jessica Biel. It was also announced this week that there will be a cameo by Ethan Hawke. Farrell plays the lead, Douglas Quaid, who was previously played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Cranston will play the villain. The film is directed by Len Wiseman, who previously worked with Nighy on the UNDERWORLD films.
Along with the UNDERWORLD films, Nighy has recently been in the PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN franchise as Davy Jones and can be seen soon in the upcoming HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HOLLOWS PART 2 as Minister Rufus Scrimgeour.
