With Colin Farrell set to square off against Bryan Cranston in the get-your-ass-to-Euromerica remake of Total Recall, attention has now turned to finding the ladies who will help and/or hate him (or help then hate him, and vice versa).

And by “search” we mean director Len Wiseman just sort of glanced around his kitchen, saw wife Kate Beckinsale standing there, and decided he better cast her in another one of his movies. Anyway, Deadline reports that Beckinsale has been “offered” the role, but let’s just assume that she’s got it.
