TOTAL BABE: Jessica Biel is getting ready for a busy summer, what with her being cast as Melina in the remake of “Total Recall,” which beings shooting in Toronto this week. Biel, who was in New York recently to promote Revlon’s latest Grow Luscious Plumping mascara and accompanying commercial, directed by Darren Aronofsky and featuring musician Pharrell Williams, shared her excitement about the coveted role. “It’s ripe for a remake,” she said from a sky-high apartment in The London hotel, which will have her playing opposite Colin Farrell.

The film, which reinterprets a Nineties action classic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, also will star Kate Beckinsale, in the role of Lori, and is being directed by Len Wiseman. “There are two camps, some who want a remake and some who think it should be left alone,” she acknowledged. Biel is also looking forward to a possible trip to Greece this summer, a voyage she said she promised her younger brother more than a year ago as a high school graduation gift. Asked which islands she’ll visit, she said, “I don’t know. Maybe we’ll do a tour cruise of all the islands. And then go to Athens for some history.”
