REMAKE: BLADE RUNNER: EXTREME
Based on legendary sci-fi author Philip K. Dick's story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale”, director Paul Verhoeven's 1990 action-adventure blockbuster Total Recall stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a dissatisfied construction worker who attempts to have memories of an awesome Martian vacation implanted in his brain, only to react violently before the procedure and discover that he may actually be a Martian freedom fighter whose memories were erased. Pretty trippy—did we mention that Dick used a lot of drugs?
WIth Total Recall being remade with Colin Farrell in the lead, it makes perfect sense to redo another of Dick's many tales adapted/drastically altered by Hollywood. Of these, you can't do any better than Ridley Scott's 1982 gem Blade Runner, which is based quite loosely on Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? In the original film, Harrison Ford plays an ex cop tasked with tracking down and "retiring" robot replicants of humans that have caught feelings and escaped from bondage. In a dramatic shift from all the sugary shit he's been shoveling, we see pretty Zac Efron bringing in young lady dollars as the hunter after the rogue humanoids, who falls for robot Katy Perry. Her personality is definitely better than his Sybian’s. That EXTREME enough for you, kids?
