True Lies Getting a TV Reboot

At this stage all I want is True Lies on Blu-ray but that doesn’t seem to be coming any time soon. The Arnold Schwarzenegger movie is the next reboot coming off the Hollywood conveyor belt and according to Deadline “Fox has given a put pilot commitment to an hourlong reboot of the film, which comes from McG, Arrow co-creator Marc Guggenheim, Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV.

Guggenheim is writing the adaptation, with McG set to direct. The two are executive producing alongside Cameron and Jon Landau via Lightstorm, as well as Rae Sanchini and Mary Viola.

20th Century Fox TV, whose sister feature studio produced the movie, and where McG is under an overall deal, is the studio. 20th TV had been trying to put together a True Lies series with McG since last season.

McG will focus on the project after recently exiting over creative differences from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s upcoming drama series 9-1-1 for Fox, on which he was to serve as director/executive producer.”

I always wanted to see a sequel with Arnie and co. coming back but sadly it never happened… so about that Blu-ray release…
