Not since 1990 have we heard so much buzz surrounding a movie called Total Recall, but now Colin Farrell is giving orginal star Arnold Schwarzenegger a run for his money!

We're now getting a sneak peek at the 35-year-old hottie in action on the set. The action flick, also starring Kate Beckinsale, Ethan Hawke and Jessica Biel, is being directed by Len Wiseman ... Ms. Beckinsale's hubby.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Farrell revealed the new version's "tone will be much less jokey."

Too bad Arnold won't be making a cameo. The former California governor has been busy dealing with his personal life and the fallout from his love child with housekeeper Mildred Baena. However, Arnold did make time just last night for a reunion with estranged wife Maria Shriver.

As for Total Recall with Colin Farrell, find out when it hits theaters... after the jump.
