At a time when remakes, reboots or new incarnations of past and previous properties are all the rage, now comes news that a new take on James Cameron’s True Lies is on the way.
Courtesy of Collider, Cameron’s 1994 True Lies is now being turned into a TV series for the Disney+ streaming service. Cameron himself will seemingly not have any involvement in the show, but he has reportedly given his blessing to the person tasked with developing the show.
That person is the opinion-splitting McG, best known for helming the likes of Terminator: Salvation, Charlie’s Angels and The Babysitter.
On this news, McG enthused, “I’m so passionate about that story where you think you know your partner but you don’t.”
In Cameron’s ’94 offering, the movie starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as a tough-as-nails secret agent who discovers that his wife – played by Jamie Lee Curtis – may be having an affair.
As ever, expect more on this True Lies TV series as it continues to develop.
