Deadline are reporting that the Titanic auteur (having previously co-created and executive produced Fox’s sci-fi drama Dark Angel) will be adapting a film from his own back catalogue this time around.
1994’s action comedy True Lies (itself a remake of a 1991 French film) will be shopped around the various TV networks in the US as a possible TV show.
It’s unclear yet as to how close this small screen venture will adhere to the original film’s plot, which starred Cameron regular Arnold Schwarzenegger as a spy who keeps his espionage escapades a secret from his family.
Although it may seem a tad unadventurous for Cameron to go back this material, given the fact that the original version is now 16 years old and films like the Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie vehicle Mr. and Mrs. Smith have tread a similar path, he obviously see’s potential here for yet another huge Cameron money-spinner.
We’ll bring you more on this as it develops.
