Summer 1994 was an unpredictable time at the box office for Hollywood studios. The year before, Jurassic Park had smashed box office records, but twelve months on, films such as The Flintstones and Beverly Hills Cop 3 were struggling to emulate its success. There were some solid hits: The Client, Maverick and True Lies, for instance. But there was also a sense of things changing. The big money of summer 1994 was being taken by sleeper successes such as Forrest Gump and Speed.
In the midst of this, though, emerged two brand new movie stars.
Jamie Lee Curtis will star in and executive produce a new multi-cam comedy in development at CBS, Variety has learned exclusively.
The project, titled “Quality of Life” is described as a multi-generational sitcom set at a family-run funeral home, tackling life through the unique perspective that growing up in a funeral home gives you. Curtis will play the family matriarch. She and Janis Hirsch came up with the story for the project, with Hirsch writing the script. Both Curtis and Hirsch will also executive produce, along with Eric and Kim Tannenbaum. CBS Television Studios will produce.
The news comes on the heels of the announcement that Curtis will reprise her iconic role as Laurie Strode in the upcoming “Halloween” film. Curtis’ character will have a final confrontation with Michael Myers, the ghoulish masked figure who has plagued her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

The Ridley Scott-ing of James Cameron‘s careers continues to push forward, with no end in sight. With the filmmaker already working on his multiple sequels to “Avatar,” and getting ready to reboot the “Terminator” series, now he’s plucking another title from this catalog and bringing to TV. Guess you gotta pay for those pea protein factories somehow.
The director’s Lightstorm Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV are teaming up to develop a TV series based on Cameron’s 1994 blockbuster “True Lies.” The film, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis and hasn’t aged well at all, tells the story of an ordinary married man, who’s actually a spy for a secret government agency, with his wife all the while believing he’s just boring computer salesman.

Warning: This exclusive deleted scene from Lethal Weapon‘s first season may give you the munchies.
The moment, cut from Episode 3, “Best Buds,” shows Clayne Crawford’s Riggs doing something kinda sweet for his new-ish partner, Damon Wayans’ Murtaugh. But as Murtaugh tucks into the delicious treat Martin brings him, Riggs — in the driver’s seat — announces that he’s maybe kinda a little under the influence.
Is Riggs actually high? Probably. (We mean, have you met him?)
The exchange is featured on the Fox series’ Season 1 Blu-ray and DVD, »
We’re going to go out on a limb and say Last Man on Earth‘s Season 4 premiere on Oct. 1 (9:30/8:30c on Fox) will feature some kind of time jump — and the (apparent) proof is in the exclusive video above.
In the final moments of Season 3, our survivors were introduced to Kristen Wiig’s Pamela Brinton when she boarded their yacht and promptly murdered evil Pat Brown (Mark Boone Junior). Well, based on this first Season 4 promo, Pamela now appears to be just another member of the wacky family. Will Forte’s Tandy, in particular, seems quite smitten »
Feeling emotional about the imminent end of So You Think You Can Dance‘s 14th season? Well, Monday’s penultimate episode made it clear that you are not alone.
Only seven days remain until the Fox competition series crowns its newest champion, and at least one All-Star was feeling very sentimental during the performance finale. Just after she reprised her Top 9 contemporary routine with Kiki, Jenna Johnson burst into tears, revealing to Cat Deeley between sobs, “I’m just so sad… because I love dancing with him!”
Suffice to say, Monday’s broadcast was packed with similar nostalgia, as the »
We’ve been hearing about the possibility of a True Lies sequel ever since the original hit theatres back in 1994 and became one of the highest grossing movies of the year. James Cameron claimed in the early 2000s that 9/11 had forced to him to abandon the project and yet Tom Arnold continued to bring […] »

According to studio reports, Fox is developing a new TV series, adapting director James Cameron's terrorist-killing, 'action comedy' spy feature "True Lies" (1994), giving the project a 'put pilot' commitment:
"...'Harry Tasker' leads a double life. While his wife 'Helen' and daughter 'Dana' believe him to be a run-of-the-mill computer salesman...
"...he is actually a 'black operative' for the covert counter-terrorism task force 'Omega Sector'..."
McG will direct the pilot from a script by Marc Guggenheim, executive produced by Cameron.

True Lies is heading to the small screen, with THR reporting that Fox has given a put pilot commitment to a TV reboot of the 1994 action-comedy.
Marc Guggenheim (Arrow) is penning the script and McG (Charlie’s Angels) has signed on to direct. They will also executive produce along with James Cameron, who wrote, produced and directed the original film. The TV reboot is described as “a modern version of the story about how a suburban couple adjusts when one of them is revealed to be a spy.”
True Lies starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as Harry Tasker, a family man posing as a computer salesman, who is actually leading a double life as a black ops agent. Also featuring in the cast of the film were Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Arnold, Bill Paxton, Art Malik and Tia Carrere. »

Though Terminator 2: Judgment Day is obviously the more acclaimed and beloved collaboration between director James Cameron and star Arnold Schwarzenegger, there is still plenty of love for the action comedy True Lies out there. The film has inexplicably yet to be released in high-definition, and you can’t even find it to download or stream […]

It was strongly hinted on social media that True Lies star, Jamie Lee Curtis will be reprising her role as the virginal Laurie Strode in the upcoming Halloween sequel, scheduled to be released on October 19th, 2018.
A message on her official Facebook page read as follows:
Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween. Release date 10/19/18.
A picture of Jamie Lee Curtis wearing the same clothes that her 40 year younger self wore in the original Halloween back in 1978 with her knife wielding adversary, Michael Myers in the background accompanied the post. It has gotten fans wild over her return and there is already a lot of speculation on a lot of things about the new movie. Here it is below.

Arguably, James Cameron’s True Lies has not aged as gracefully over the years as some of his other action blockbusters. It's certainly not a perfect film, but it's still pretty damn hilarious, and a pretty clever riff on the spy genre. Mixing matrimony and spymania has often been something filmmakers have toyed with, from Mr. & Mrs. Smith to Mission: Impossible 3. Still, no one does it better, in terms of ‘90s action glee, than a pun-dispensing Arnold Schwarzenegger - so it was probably inevitable that True Lies would get a reboot of some sort.
Enter Fox’s newest television remake prospect.
We may still be waiting for True Lies to be released on Blu-ray, but it's entirely possible that a TV reboot of the James Cameron flick may be the first out of the gate. Per THR, Twentieth Century Fox Television has given out a sizable put-pilot commitment for a television adapation of True Lies, which is set to be penned by Marc Guggenheim (Arrow). Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as Harry Tasker, a... Read More »

Fox made Lethal Weapon into a moderate success and now it will not give up the ghost of making yesteryear action movies into hit series. That's actually good news because the network has convinced James Cameron -- yes, the James Cameron -- to adapt his '90s Arnold Schwarzenegger starrer True Lies

Forcing us all to give serious consideration to the question “Who is the modern-day Tom Arnold?” Deadline reports that James Cameron is set to serve as a producer on an in-development remake of his 1994 action film True Lies. But while Cameron seems happy to lend his name to the project, it sounds like day-to-day…

For well over a decade after it hit theaters, people would keep asking if James Cameron ever planned to make a sequel to his 1994 action-comedy True Lies. The premise seemed ripe for franchising as it followed a spy (Arnold Schwarzenegger) who tries to keep his profession a secret from his wife (Jamie Lee Curtis) and daughter (Eliza Dushku) until his worlds collide. And yet as Schwarzenegger got older and Cameron decided he wanted to make Avatar movies forever, chances for a sequel became slimmer and slimmer. Now it looks like a sequel is dead as True Lies aims … »

Oh, you thought the trend of movies being adapted for the small screen had died down? Sorry to let you down, friend, but “True Lies” is being turned into a TV show, too. A new take on James Cameron’s action flick — which he wrote, directed, and produced in between “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” and “Titanic” — is headed to Fox.
“Arrow” executive producer Marc Guggenheim is on screenplay duty, with Cameron and McG onboard as an executive producers; if a pilot is ordered, the “Terminator Salvation” and “Charlie’s Angels” helmer will direct as well. Released in 1994 and based on the 1991 French comedy, “True Lies” starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as a spy and Jamie Lee Curtis as his wife, who’s unaware of her husband’s actual career. Tom Arnold, Bill Paxton, Eliza Dushku, and »
