Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis in Talks to Do ‘True Lies’ Spin-Off
The original stars of the 1994 action movie, who played husband and wife Harry and Helen Tasker, are said to have recurring roles in the first season of the Disney+ series.
AceShowbiz –Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis are reportedly in talks to reprise their roles in “True Lies” for a TV spin-off.
The stars, who played husband and wife in the 1994 action movie, have been circling a Disney+ series inspired by the James Cameron movie in recent months and according to the entertainment news website We Got This Covered, they will have recurring roles in the show’s first season – but they are not expected to lead the cast.
The film followed a secret agent who allows his wife to participate in a spy mission after he fears she is having an affair.
The news comes after “Terminator Salvation” director McG revealed last year (19) that he was involved in a planned television series.
Curtis previously shot down rumors of a sequel to the production, insisting it would not be appropriate to spoof terrorism in the wake of the 9/11 attacks in 2001.
”I don’t think we could ever do another ‘True Lies’ after 9/11,” she shared during a 2019 press conference. ”This was pre-9/11… we could make fun of terrorism because it was so outrageous.”
But she confessed the role was one of her career favorites.
” ‘True Lies’ is just a perfect combination of everything I would do well in every way,” she shared. “It was just a perfect canvas. It was such a giant scope and Jim (Cameron) hired me, he wrote it for me… he just let me do what I do.”
The news comes as Curtis and her Comet Pictures associates sign a three-year, first-look deal with bosses at horror movie studio Blumhouse. Among the projects already in production is thriller “Mother Nature“.
