James Cameron's TRUE LIES is Being Adapted Into a Series For Disney+ By McG
James Cameron’s True Lies is in my opinion one of the best action comedies ever made. I love that movie because it’s got a solid story, awesome action, and no matter how many times I’ve seen it, it still makes me bust up laughing.
Well, that film is now being adapted into a series for Disney+ and it’s being developed by McG, who already worked on a James Cameron property with Terminator: Salvation. But, that didn’t turn out very well. McG has always been good with the TV shows that he’s been a part of, like Chuck, so maybe there’s a chance that this True Lies series could be decent.
McG talked about the project when talking to Collider saying, “So, 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 goes on to the say the series will be “largely rebooted”, and when asked if Schwarzenegger would show up, he says that there has been talk, but feels a “Schwarzenegger cameo is unlikely.” As far as the story goes, if it’s a reboot of the film it will just tell that same story, but in the form of a series.
Here’s the thing, though… what’s the point of doing it without Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Lee Curtis, or Tom Arnold? They, and Bill Paxton, are what made that movie so damn fantastic! In case you’re wondering, Cameron is aware of this adaptation and has given McG his blessing.
I’m not really sure what to expect from this True Lies series, but as of right now, I’m not really interested in it. But, if it looks like it’s going to end up being a good show, then yeah, I’lll give it shot.
What do you think about McG developing a True Lies series?
