You’ve got a new Sci-Fi show about to premiere.  You know Sci-Fi fans are gonna look in.  So what do you do?  Appeal to non-Sci-Fi fans.  And, with the premiere less than week away, that’s just what the producers and stars of TNT’s “Falling Skies” are doing.  Executive Producer Mark Verheiden told The Hollywood Reporter:

It’s not about the invasion – it’s about the resistance … It’s about finding hope in an otherwise hopeless situation.

While star Noah Wyle said:

Our show walks a really interesting line between being a character-based drama and being a sci-fi show … It’s not really one or the other but has a little something for both.

We appreciate what they’re trying to do.  They want  big numbers for the premiere.  But, frankly, it’s Sci-Fi fans are gonna make or break this show.

Hollywood Reporter let slip that the remake of Total Recall has entered the casting stage, and the production is considering Colin Farrell, Michael Fassbender or Tom Hardy for the lead.  Farrell is considered the front runner.

Farrell, interesting enough, appeared in Minority Report.  A film which was originally developed as a sequel to Total Recall.  Both films were based on short stories by Philip K. Dick.
