Well… there’s a True Lies series coming to Disney+ and Schwarzenegger may have a role

May 21st, 2019 by Marc Comments

If there was one movie in the 1990s that was crying out for a sequel, it was True Lies.

The James Cameron movie starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as a husband who pretend to sell insurance buy is actually a top-secret agent and when his family – Jamie Lee Curtis and a very young Eliza Dusku – get involved by accident, hijinks ensue.

Honestly, it’s a fun, funny and over the top in all the right ways actions movie and seemed prime for sequels which just never appeared.

But now it seems that Cameron is working on producing a TV series which will have Charlie’s Angels’ McG directing.

“Well right now my new thing for television is I’m doing True Lies at Disney+,” McG revealed yesterday.

“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.”

The movie had been eyed as potential TV series a while ago by Fox, so it looks like Disney have decided to pick it up and run with it.

But, will the main man, Arnold Schwarzenegger be involved?

“There’s talk of that. It’s largely rebooted but there may be a spot there, we’ll see,” McG added.

Chances are we’ll have a wait for this one but as a big fan of the original, I’m both excited and terrified in equal amounts.

Let me know your thoughts, guys…

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….
