Fox to Develop a TV Series Version of James Cameron’s ‘True Lies’

Proposed Project Comes Following the Successful Arrival of 'Lethal Weapon' This Season

“True Lies,” the 1994 action comedy with Arnold Schwarzenegger from director James Cameron, could be following in the same path as “Lethal Weapon” this season. Fox has given a put pilot commitment for an hour-long reboot of the film, which comes from McG, “Arrow” co-creator Marc Guggeheim, Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV. The original film also starred Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Arnold, Bill Paxton, Tia Carrere, Art Malik, Eliza Dushku and Grant Heslov, and it followed U.S. government agent Harry Tasker (Schwarzenegger) as he balanced his life as a spy with his familial duties.

“True Lies” is certainly not the only reboot in the works. Also in contention at present is a live action version of “The Jetsons” at NBC, “The Munsters” and a female-led “Greatest American Hero” at ABC, and “Starsky and Hutch” at Amazon. What could be next?
