James Cameron 'True Lies' TV series in development
 
Quote:

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, exec producing with Cameron and Lightstorm’s Rae Sanchini and Jon Landau.

Interesting. I guess this is just them cashing in on the current CIA-type TV series in production.
Under Covers, Nikita, etc.

CIA/FBI or spy shows come and go. Alias was big for 5yrs at the end of the 90'/start of '00s.

They should've continued the True Lies concept on screen a decade ago. They could be on film 4 or 5 by now. They fumbled that concept as a franchise long ago.

For him, it would be more of a shocker if he didn't. :rommie:

Oh, no. Cameron's worst movie? That disgusting piece of sexist crap, where the "hero" misappropriates government resources to abduct and then psychologically and sexually terrorize his wife and it's treated as a comedy? I do not want to see a continuation of that story.

The TV series, starring Eliza Dushku as Dana Tasker following in her fathers footsteps and maybe Tom Arnold as Albert "Gib" Gibson in a mentor roll.

Never gonna happen, I know...I would watch though and I bet it would do better than Dollhouse in the ratings.

:lol:

I don't see how he screwed up a franchise that obviously just hasn't been a priority for him to make. His main star has kind of been unavailable for a while. Maybe Eliza can reprise her role in this :)

How about Eliza Dushku as Dana Tasker and Alyssa Milano as Jenny Matrix teaming up to kick some ass? Their fathers are good friends. :)

That would be awesome. Though the level of hotness with those 2 onscreen may melt my DVR and television.

I'm sorry I happen to be correct all the time. :rolleyes:

:p

James Cameron is a nut job that makes great movies but should never be allowed to talk or make sequels to the movies. He just waste them and is a lot of talk in order to get attention because he's an attention whore.

Meh. That could be said for most creative people.

That part of the movie was great! I hope they build an entire series around kidnapping cheating wives and scaring the shit out of them.

But until Avatar 2 in 4 years time he has only ever made one sequel to one of his own films, and that was T2.

Fair enough if you personally think that movie was a waste, I personally it bloated and cloyingly sentimental, but it's a pretty small sample to make such a sweeping statement off.
