Deadline is reporting that James Cameron is developing a TV series based on the 1994 hit action movie True Lies. Cameron will produce the project, with Rene Echevarria (“The 4400″) serving as showrunner:
I hear the project, from Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV, is about to be taken out to the networks. Rene Echevarria is the writer/showrunner, executive producing with Cameron and Lightstorm’s Rae Sanchini and Jon Landau. The 1994 movie centered on Harry Tasker (Schwarzenegger), a computer salesman/family man who lives a double life as a government spy. During a top-secret mission, Harry discovers that his mousy wife Helen (Curtis), seeking adventure, has embarked on an affair with an used cars salesman who has seduced her by pretending to be a spy. Harry sets out to give her the excitement she craves while battling Middle Eastern terrorists who threaten nuclear war with the U.S.
The 1994 Arnold Schwarzenegger/Jamie Lee Curtis-starrer grossed $378.882 million worldwide when it was released in 1994.
