Director McG has revealed while appearing on ColliderLive that he’s developing and writing a True Lies series for Disney+ based on the James Cameron’s over-the-top spy action flick that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis.
MCG: “Well, right now my new thing for television is that I’m doing True Lies, at Disney+. I guess I’m announcing it, which I don’t mean to do. So, True Lies at Disney+, which is exciting. I don’t should be even talking about that, but I think the cat’s out of the bag now.
His response if Arnold would be involved and if it would be a reboot.
MCG: “There’s been talk of that, but it’s largely rebooted. Maybe there’s a spot we’ll see.”
When asked how far into the process and he responded with.
MCG: “Just breaking the outline and just getting it going. I’ll spend the summer writing that.”
We’ll have to wait a little longer I assume to get the full picture of what they’re planning to do with this new series.
True Lies would mark the first 20th Century Fox project that would be heading to Disney+ after the merger completed back in mid-March.
