The first series from a former Fox IP is in the works for Disney+. Terminator: Salvation Director McG is attempting to adapt James Cameron‘s True Lies for the upcoming Disney streaming service.
In a recent interview on Collider Live, McG spilled the beans that his latest venture is developing a True Lies series on Disney+, saying that “So, True Lies at Disney+, which is exciting,” McG says. “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.”
We’re with you McG, it’s definitely exciting. That said, it may be some time until we see this True Lies series on the streaming service, as McG admitted that he’s, ” Just breaking the outline, just getting it going. I’ll spend the Summer writing that.”
True Lies, directed by James Cameron, released in 1994 starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Eliza Dushku. It followed a bad-ass secret agent, leading a double life. To his family believes he’s just your average boring husband/father. Eventually, his family gets wise on his action-packed antics and thus the hilarity, action, and explosions ensue.
On if the Disney+ series would see Schwarzenegger reprise his role as secret agent Harry Tasker, McG said, “There’s talk of that, It’s largely rebooted but there may be a spot there, we’ll see.”
This will be McG‘s second TV series about a seemingly common man becoming a secret agent. His first was the hit NBC show, Chuck, starring Zachary Levi.
Disney+ launches November 12, 2019 and we already know that we’re getting The Mandalorian, a Rogue One Prequel Series, WandaVision, Falcon and Winter Soldier, and, if things go well, True Lies.
