Kate Beckinsale for Total Recall?

Kate Beckinsale has been offered the starring role of Lori in the remake of Total Recall.

The Pearl Harbour star has not been linked to the film before, and Diane Kruger, Kate Bosworth, and Jessica Biel have all apparently read for the part, but Kate is married to the director, Len Wiseman, and has now been asked to take on the part, originally played by Sharon Stone in the 1990 action film, Deadline reports.

Kate and Len worked together on the Underworld films, where they met, and - if she accepts the role - Jessica has reportedly been eying up the role of Melina, the woman who helps freedom fighter Doug Quaid get to the bottom of the futuristic scandal on Mars.

But Eva Mendes and Rosario Dawson are reported to be "the serious contenders" for that role.

Colin Farrell is stepping into Arnold Schwarzenegger's shoes as Doug Quaid in the remake penned by Kurt Wimmer and due to start production in May.

Kate will next be seen reprising her role as the leather-clad Selene in Underworld 4: New Dawn, which is not directed by her husband.
