Breaking Bad doesn't want Martians to have oxygen?

The L.A. Times (and lots of other people who wouldn't lie) are saying that Bryan Cranston (of Tv's "Breaking Bad") is set to play the villain, Cohaagen, in the "Total Recall" total remake. I'm not gonna start jumping up and down and buying tickets on fandango yet, but short of announcing that Weird Al will be playing Quaid, this is probably the best possible news concerning this movie.
