Colin Farrell Talks 'Tough' Total Recall Co-Stars Jessica Biel & Kate Beckinsale

Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale star in the “Total Recall” reboot, 22 years after Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone’s Martian/memory-wiping sci-fi movie, and the film’s star says his leading ladies are two forces to be reckoned with!

“Kate’s amazing in the film. I really thought she did such a great job because she’s so villainous and she’s so strong as the villain,” the actor told Access this weekend at the film’s junket.

Kate’s character (originally played by Sharon Stone) is a serious match for Colin’s character and his ally (played by Jessica) also holds her own.

“They’re both tough,” the Irish actor continued.” Tough broads both of them…the two of them are really strong.”

Jessica told Access that she feared having an accident while shooting the film’s intricate fight scenes with Kate.

“It’s all about safety… and looking extremely aggressive at the same time, which is a real strange dichotomy. How you have to go for it, but you have to know that you have to pull the punch so you don’t accidentally clip Kate Beckinsale in the face,” the actress recalled.

Adding, “It was very intense… day and day out hanging on wires, jumping off buildings, rolling around in sets, flying helicopters, it’s pretty intense but very cool.”

“Total Recall” hits theaters on August 3.
