Kurt Wimmer has been tapped to write Columbia’s new version of “Total Recall,” which Neal H. Moritz is developing and producing through his Original Films banner.
The original, based on the Philip K. Dick story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale,” follows a man haunted by a recurring dream of journeying to Mars who buys a literal dream vacation from a company called Rekall Inc., which sells implanted memories. The man comes to believe he is a secret agent and ends up on a Martian colony, where he fights to overthrow a despotic ruler controlling the production of air.
   The studio is keeping mum on the new take, simply calling a “contemporized adaptation.”
   Toby Jaffe is overseeing production on behalf of Original Film. Matt Tolmach and Sam Dickerman are overseeing the project on behalf of the studio.
   Columbia secured the rights to “Recall” in February from Miramax, which retained the right to co-finance the film.
   CAA-repped Wimmer wrote “Law Abiding Citizen,” which recently wrapped, and penned “Salt,” Columbia’s spy thriller starring Angelina Jolie that is currently shooting in New York.
