WATCH: Trailer arrives for True Lies TV series…

What?! When was this made?!?! 

So the trailer has landed for the True Lies TV series which, last we heard in 2019 was being written/developed by Charlie’s Angels’ McG and may possibly, at some stage, have a role for Arnold Schwarzenegger (here).

Now that the trailer is here, we know that the series is basically a remake of the James Cameron movie which starred Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis as Harry and Helen, played here by Steve Howey and Ginger Gonzaga. The series having its own version of Harry and Helen means that, should Arnie have a role, he won’t be revisiting the one he played in the 90s action classic.

Mind you… in the original movie Harry’s [secret] agency was run by Charlton Heston… we could see Arnie in that sort of role here.

True Lies, inspired by James Cameron’s hit action/comedy film of the same name, follows Harry (Steve Howey), a first-class international spy for U.S. intelligence agency Omega Sector, and his wife, Helen (Ginger Gonzaga), a language professor bored with her daily routine, who makes the shocking discovery that her seemingly ordinary husband is leading an extraordinary double life.

The secret out, Helen joins Harry’s team, and the renewed bond between them adds much-needed sizzle to the Taskers’ emotionally distant marriage and upends the top-secret world of Omega Sector. But, as Harry says, if you’re going to save the world, you might as well do it for the ones you love.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
