Talk about a new spin on the James Cameron classic True Lies has been around for decades, but it appears the material is being revived at an unlikely home. We learned in 2017 that a planned sequel to the 1994 action-comedy was being scrapped in favor of a TV series adaptation executive produced by Cameron and directed by McG (Charlie’s Angels). And today, while appearing on Collider Live to discuss his upcoming Netflix film Rim of the World, McG revealed the TV show is now in the works at Disney+:
“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.”
As for what the True Lies TV show will entail, McG says he’ll be spending the summer writing it, but the door is open for Arnold Schwarzenegger to be involved in some capacity:
“There’s talk of that. It’s largely rebooted but there may be a spot there, we’ll see.”
This one may still be a ways off as Disney+ hasn’t yet announced it, but it’s certainly a curious home for the True Lies TV series.
