The epic reboot of the sci-fi classic 'Total Recall' has already attracted fierce buzz, but with some newly leaked pics of Colin Farrell this week the speculation is off the charts.

But Farrell warned the press tonight not to expect a camp classic - so forget the Arnold Schwarzenegger style catch phrases and wink to the audience.

Instead, the Irish hunk says 'the tone will be much less jokey' and 'there's not as much tongue in cheek.'

The reboot will co-star Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy and Korean American hunk John Cho.

'Total Recall' is a terrific title for the moment because with a prequel to 'The Thing' and a remake of 'Conan the Barbarbian' (really? the world needed this?) coming later this year it's back to the future in tinsel town.

Fans saw Farrell's star fall and then rise again with his Golden Globe win for his role in 'In Bruges.' But mainstream audiences will be knocked out by his brilliant turn in 'Horrible Bosses' (he's the best thing in the film) currently playing.

His turn in 'Total Recall' takes him back to A-List territory, but this time it's on his own terms - and since he's always been the smarts (if not the most disciplined) of artists, we expect him to wipe the floors with the competition.
