Today, McG revealed during an appearance on Collider Live, that he has started work on a new series for Disney+, based on the 1994 Arnold Schwarzenegger, True Lies.
“Well right now my new thing for television is I’m doing True Lies at Disney+. 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.”
During the interview he said he will be working on writing the outline of the series during the summer and it will be a reboot of the franchise, with a nod to the original. With a possibility of having Arnold Schwarzenegger involved.
“There’s talk of that. It’s largely rebooted but there may be a spot there, we’ll see.”
The original True Lies movie was directed by James Cameron and released by 20th Century Fox. Disney CEO Bob Iger has been vocal about wanting to make reboots and sequels for many of the Fox franchises, so a new series based on True Lies does fit the bill.
