Bryan Cranston, Emmy-winning star of Breaking Bad, is in talks to play the villain in Sony’s upcoming remake of the mind-bending Mars trip, Total Recall. A spokesperson for the studio confirmed a Variety report that the actor, who already is slated to star in next year’s John Carter of Mars, could be set opposite Colin Farrell’s hero, who plays an Average Joe who may or may not be an intergalactic man of mystery.
