James Cameron Plans True Lies Series

ON

James Cameron will develop and produce a television series based on his 1994 film, True Lies, reports Deadline.

The original film starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as Harry Tasker, an everyday man leading a double life as a top-level spy. When he learns that his unknowing wife (Jamie Lee Curtis) is unsatisfied with the banality of their life together and, as a result, is planning on having an affair, Tasker accidentally pulls her into his secret battle against Middle Eastern terrorists.

Rene Echevarria, the creator of “The 4400,” will serve as the showrunner with Cameron operating as a producer.

On the television front, Cameron has developed and produced “Dark Angel,” and also took the director’s chair for the series finale.
