In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a sci-fi film that nearly starred Patrick Swayze – and the attempt to reimagine it.

1990’s Total Recall took over a decade to come together, and in the end it took a bankruptcy for Arnold Schwarzenegger to get his hands on it. And he wasn’t cheap.

After a sequel nearly happened, a 2012 new take on Total Recall followed – but this one faced a few different challenges.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
