A reboot of James Cameron's 1994 action comedy film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis has been finally ordered to series, completing a six-year journey for McG. "Bringing True Lies to television has been a longtime passion for McG," says Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "He started pursuing the idea in 2016, shortly after he signed an overall deal with 20th TV, whose sister feature studio produced the movie. The following year, a TV series reboot with Marc Guggenheim as a writer sold to Fox with a put pilot commitment. It did not go beyond the script stage but McG continued his efforts. In a 2019 interview, he indicated that a True Lies TV series could still happen, possibly at Disney+."
