Apparently THR hates cameos.

The outlet is reporting that Ethan Hawke has joined the cast of the upcoming remake of TOTAL RECALL, in what was being billed as a secret cameo turn for the actor. He joins Colin Farrell and Bryan Cranston in the film, along with Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel (who are both in negotiations) in the remake.

Hawke’s cameo role has not been revealed yet, but I would imagine that the role is something relatively big, as there doesn’t seem much of a reason to cast an actor of Hawke’s stature in the role. A villain hinted at in the first film to cover tracks for a potential sequel? Don’t color me shocked if that’s the case.

Personally, while I’m a fan of the original film, I really don’t have much interest in this project. Len Wiseman is helming the film, and while the cast is relatively interesting, I don’t see the reason as to why this remake is getting so much steam. What do you think? Is this a remake you’re interested in?

    Another remake? Why are there so many remakes now? Is there no more creativity in Hollywood anymore? Total recall, Three stooges, Annie? Are you serious? Oh & Gotti with John travolta as John Gotti are you kidding me? Michael madsen, Mickey rourke or Christopher walken maybe. But John travolta? I don’t understand what’s going on! Who approves this bs? Hollywood big wigs or are the actors or actresses paying someone off? Threes stooges, I feel it’s going to mess up the nostalgia of one the best comedy dous ever! Next thing were gonna have the godfather trilogy with Wil smith,Nicolas cage,Bradley Cooper,The situation as al Pacino (you never know). Well that’s enough of my rant
