Columbia Pictures presidents Doug Belgrad and Matt Tolmach have announced that Underworld director Len Wiseman is in final negotiations to direct their remake of the 1990 Paul Verhoeven science fiction favorite, Total Recall. Though still at a late negotiation stage, a press release was put out by the studio (via /Film) to make the announcement, meaning this is a done deal.

Wiseman is best known as the director of Underworld and Underworld: Evolution. He also directed Live Free or Die Hard and is expected to return to helm Underworld 4. He was at one time attached to bring us the feature adaptation of hit video game Gears of War, but budgetary restrictions have that project facing an uncertain future.

You could make a case for Arnold Schwarzenegger as the greatest action movie superstars of all time. This is a case you would win every single time, because there is no one that tops this man when it comes to the genre. Regardless of what you think of him as a Governor, there is no arguing that his presence in movies has been missed for some years now; and thus, we retreat back to his best works to get our Schwarzenegger fix.

On the bright side, there’s sets like this one being released from time-to-time to help your binging needs. This particular set includes Red Heat, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The Running Man, and Total Recall.

When I got the chance to review this new four-movie collector’s set of Schwarzenegger flicks, I jumped at the chance for a couple of reasons: One was because I shockingly had not seen two of them; and also because I even-more shockingly didn’t own any of them.

There’s obviously a good chance that you’ve seen all of the movies reviewed here and know whether you would jump all over this set or pass it by. For this, think of these reviews as more of a recap and my own personal opinion of these intense flicks that likely hold a great deal of nostalgia for many of us.

Video: Like ‘RoboCop’? Watch It Now!

If you haven’t heard yet, there’s this place called Hulu where you can enjoy lots of movies and TV shows for free. At the moment, you can head there and watch one of the all time classic sci-fi movies, Paul Verhoeven‘s RoboCop.

I’m running on the assumption that most everyone knows of or has seen Robocop, but for the Amish just joining us, the movie tells the story of a good cop who is gunned down by a gang of big time drug lords. Instead of moving on from there, a big time corporation decides to take his remains and try a new high-tech experiment where they fuse him into a super robot police officer called a RoboCop.

I recently re-watched this one and I must say, if it’s been a while, watch it again! The kind of graphic, anarchic tone that Verhoeven pulls off is something you never see directors pulling off anymore. It’s one hardcore flick and it still holds up just as strong today as it did back in 1987.

Jump over for more and the full movie!
