Deadline has received a list of actresses who are reading for the two major female leads in Len Wiseman’s ‘Total Recall’ remake starring Colin Farrell.

First up, we have the ladies who are vying for the role of Douglas Quaid’s wife, Lori. The site reports that actresses Kate Bosworth and Diane Kruger are reading for the role. Sharon Stone played the role in the 1990 Paul Verhoeven-directed original.

Reading for the role of Melina, Quaid’s former lover and ally, are Eva Mendes and Paula Patton (‘Deja Vu’). Eva Green and Jessica Biel are also possible options, with Mendes also being considered for the part of Lori. Rachel Ticotin played the character in the Verhoeven movie. 

The remake, which is said to be closer in tone to the original Philip K. Dick story ‘We Can Remember It For You Wholesale,’ is scheduled to start filming in May with a August 2012 release.
