If you recall back in 2017, it was announced that Fox had given a put pilot commitment to a TV reboot of James Cameron’s 1994 action comedy blockbuster True Lies, with McG (Charlie’s Angels) set to direct the project and produce with Cameron and Marc Guggenheim (Arrow).
It’s be all quiet on the True Lies TV front since then, but during an interview with Collider, McG has confirmed that he is still working on the potential series, although it is now set up at Disney for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service.
“Well, right now my new thing for television is I’m doing True Lies at Disney… which is exciting. I’m writing that one, which is very exciting, because I’m so passionate about that story where you think you know your partner but you don’t.”
McG went on to tease a potential cameo from Arnold Schwarzenegger, adding that: “There’s talk of that. It’s largely rebooted but there may be a spot there, we’ll see. I’m just breaking the outline, just getting it going… I’ll spend the summer writing that.”
A smash hit at the box office, True Lies starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as Harry Tasker, a family man posing as a computer salesman, who is actually leading a double life as a black ops agent. Also featuring in the cast of the film were Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Arnold, Bill Paxton, Art Malik and Tia Carrere.
