True Lies Series in the Works for Disney+

-

Back in 2017, it was announced that James Cameron was working on a True Lies series for 20th Century Fox Television. We haven’t heard anything about the possible project since then, but now in a new interview with Collider, filmmaker McG reveals that the True Lies series is now in development for the Disney+ streaming service. It makes sense as Disney recently bought 20th Century Fox Television.

He says: “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.”

He adds that he’ll be spending this summer writing in and that the door is open for Arnold Schwarzenegger to be involved. “There’s talk of that. It’s largely rebooted but there may be a spot there, we’ll see.”

It’s not news that McG is attached, as he was part of the original announcement. In 2017, it was reported that he would write, executive produce, and direct the pilot. The True Lies series was said to be modern take on how a couple deals with the reveal that one of them is a spy.

McG’s Wonderland Sound and Vision president Mary Viola and Lightstorm Entertainment’s Rae Sanchini will executive produce. Sanchini executive produced the film as well.

Also starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Arnold, Bill Paxton, Charlton Heston, Tia Carrere and Eliza Dushku, the 1994 film was written, directed and produced by Cameron.
