True Lies: Fox Developing Reboot For TV With McG, Marc Guggenheim And James Cameron Producing

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Fox is developing a television series version of James Cameron 1994 action film True Lies which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis.


The film focused on Harry Tasker, a man who his family believe is a dull computer salesman but is actually a government spy. He’s currently on the trail of tracking down nuclear missiles in the possession of fanatic terrorists when his mission is complicated when he finds his wife Helen is seeing another man, a used-car salesman who claims to be a spy, because she needs some adventure in her life. Not only must Harry save the world, but he must patch up his marriage in the process.


The film also starred Tom Arnold, Bill Paxton, Tia Carrere, Art Malik, Eliza Dushku and Grant Heslov. Fox has given the potential hour-long reboot a pilot commitment which will have Marc Guggenheim penning the script that will be a modern retelling of the story focusing on how a suburban couple adjusts when one of them is revealed to be a spy. If the script moves forward then McG will direct the pilot. The duo will serve as executive producers alongside James Cameron and Jon Landua under the Lighthouse Entertainment banner, as well as Rae Sanchini and Mary Viola.
