McG offers True Lies TV series update, now at Disney+

If you recall back in 2017, it was announced that Fox had given a put pilot commitment to a TV reboot of James Cameron’s 1994 action comedy blockbuster True Lies, with McG (Charlie’s Angels) set to direct the project and produce with Cameron and Marc Guggenheim (Arrow).

It’s be all quiet on the True Lies TV front since then, but during an interview with Collider, McG has confirmed that he is still working on the potential series, although it is now set up at Disney for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service.

“Well, right now my new thing for television is I’m doing True Lies at Disney… which is exciting. I’m writing that one, which is very exciting, because I’m so passionate about that story where you think you know your partner but you don’t.”

McG went on to tease a potential cameo from Arnold Schwarzenegger,

Jason Blum Says He’s Working On Making A Halloween Sequel Happen

Last October, Blumhouse rebooted the Halloween franchise – well, kind of, booting everything but John Carpenter’s original – and ended up making the most successful film following Michael Myers’ seasonal serial killings to date. Naturally, fans have been waiting for official confirmation that a sequel will be happening ever since. Things had gone a little bit quiet on that front lately, but Jason Blum has just confirmed he’s working on making it a reality.

With Blumhouse’s The Invisible Man reboot landing a release date in March 2020, one fan questioned the producer on Twitter about when Halloween 2 – or, technically, Halloween 12 – will be getting an announcement of some kind. The horror studio’s founder replied with a brief but encouraging: “Working on it.”

Of course, Blum has never been shy about talking about his own personal wish to continue the eternal battle between Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode and her masked tormentor,

Nick Castle Details His Involvement In Halloween (2018)

Over the years, there have been many men to have played the iconic role of Michael Myers in the Halloween franchise. But what you may not know is that very few of them have done it more than once. Tyler Mane may be the most obvious because he’d previously made a name for himself as a pro wrestler and as Sabretooth in the first X-Men flick before playing the villain in both of Rob Zombie’s contributions to the brand.

As it turned out, the filmmakers behind 2018’s (sort of) reboot actually managed to acquire the services of Nick Castle. If his name rings a bell, it should, because he was credited as the Shape in the 1978 original. And though James Jude Courtney was under the mask more often than not in the most recent picture, Castle did indeed suit up.

When I had the chance to speak with Mr.

True Lies TV Series In The Works From Terminator: Salvation Director

From Star Wars to The Muppets to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney has a solid line-up of shows in development for its upcoming streaming service Disney Plus. Now, it looks like we can add an adaptation of James Cameron’s 1994 action-comedy True Lies to that list, and Terminator: Salvation director McG will be the one to help usher it onto the small screen.

McG, who honest-to-god got his start as the original singer of the band Sugar Ray, is known for his high-octane style of action directing, which seems perfectly suited for a True Lies follow-up. Speaking on Collider Live, the director revealed his involvement with the Disney Plus show, saying:

“Well, right now my new thing for television is that I’m doing True Lies, at Disney+. I guess I’m announcing it, which I don’t mean to do. So, True Lies at Disney+, which is exciting. I

True Lies TV series shifts to Disney+

Kirsten Howard May 21, 2019

Terminator: Salvation's McG is still very much at the center of bringing True Lies to the small screen.

Back in 2017, it was announced that McG was about to produce and direct a True Lies TV series for Fox. These plans were evidently shelved for a time, but it looks like the combined interests of Fisney are working in the proposed show's favor.

Collider sat down recently for a chat with the Charlie's Angels director about what exactly is going on with the TV version of True Lies, and he revealed that it's now set for the Disney+ streaming service. "Well right now my new thing for television is I’m doing True Lies at Disney+," he confirmed. "Which is exciting.

James Cameron's True Lies is Being Adapted Into a Series For Disney+ By McG

James Cameron’s True Lies is in my opinion one of the best action comedies ever made. I love that movie because it’s got a solid story, awesome action, and no matter how many times I’ve seen it, it still makes me bust up laughing.

Well, that film is now being adapted into a series for Disney+ and it’s being developed by McG, who already worked on a James Cameron property with Terminator: Salvation. But, that didn’t turn out very well. McG has always been good with the TV shows that he’s been a part of, like Chuck, so maybe there’s a chance that this True Lies series could be decent.

McG talked about the project when talking to Collider saying, “So, True Lies at Disney+, which is exciting. I’m writing that one, which is very exciting, because I’m so passionate about

Critters Attack! Trailer: Dee Wallace Returns to Battle the Krites
The first trailer for Critters Attack is here. The little deadly creatures have been away from the pop culture landscape for nearly three decades now. However, in the modern age of Hollywood, everything old is new again. As such, this particular franchise is getting revived in a big way this year as we're not only getting the recently revealed Critters: A New Binge series over on Shudder, we're also getting this brand new movie, which brings back original franchise star Dee Wallace.

It's a trailer that should delight fans of the series. It starts off with a familiar premise, as the little creatures crash land on Earth and quickly begin devouring unsuspecting humans. Dee Wallace seems to be playing a role similar to that of Jamie Lee Curtis from the most recent Halloween, waiting and preparing for these aliens to return. Based on what we see here, she's more than ready for them.

‘Someone Great’ Is the Music-Critic Comedy We Had No Idea We Needed

Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez shines in her totally delightful Netflix comedy Someone Great, written and directed by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson. In addition to everything else Someone Great is — a break-up comedy, a killer soundtrack, a girls-together-outrageously romp — it’s a movie about music fans, people who live their lives and suffer and fuck up and bond and grieve while obsessing over their favorite songs. It finds clever ways to crush your soul with Mitski or Phoebe Bridgers tunes. A moment in a bodega where you hear a Selena

Missing Halloween 5 Massacre Footage Details Revealed by Michael Myers Actor

Missing Halloween 5 Massacre Footage Details Revealed by Michael Myers Actor
Halloween 5:The Revenge of Michael Myers actor Don Shanks, the man under the mask in the 1989 sequel, has detailed a massacre filmed for the movie but never before seen. In a recent interview, Shanks recalls shooting footage of a scene featuring Michael totally decimating an entire Swat team in incredibly brutal ways.

The footage was intended to be shown in snippets to coincide with the screams of the officers heard on the radio, but ultimately, none of the video was used. Because not a second of this footage has been seen by fans, all we know about it comes from the description by Don Shanks in his new interview.

  • Deadline
When Deadline runs its Most Valuable Blockbuster film profitability countdown each year, readers often ask about certain wildly profitable films that didn’t crack our top list. So we’ve once again had five overachievers (pics with production budgets under $40 million) broken down by the experts.

Rian Johnson Shows Off First Footage From His Murder Mystery Film Knives Out

Rian Johnson’s upcoming film project has been shrouded in mystery, but during the Lionsgate presentation at CinemaCon he pulled back the curtain and shared some of the first footage from the movie.

Johnson explained that his new movie is a tribute to the kind of murder mysteries that Agatha Christie gave the world and mixed it up with a Hitchcockian-type thriller. It’s a who-dunnit story that is filled with suspense, twists and turns, and it’s set in Modern Day America.

Daniel Craig stars in the film as Detective Benoit Blanc and he is looking to find a murderer within a family. He also sports a southern accent. Jamie Lee Curtis also stars in the film and she explained that the movie is a family gathered together in a mansion and this family does not get along with each other. She also teased that by the end of the film,

Rian Johnson Brings Knives Out Trailer to CinemaCon

Rian Johnson Brings Knives Out Trailer to CinemaCon
The first trailer for Rian Johnson's Knives Out just wowed the crowd at CinemaCon. Lionsgate decided to surprise those in attendance with the first look at Johnson's follow-up to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is a decidedly very different kind of movie. This time around, the filmmaker has decided to tackle a whodunit-style murder mystery with an impressive ensemble cast in a thriller coming from Mrc. Apparently, based on the reactions to the footage on social media, that all makes for a winning combination.

Rian Johnson was on hand to present the first trailer for Knives Out. He described the movie as his own take on Agatha Christie, while also saying it has a "Hitchcock thriller-type twist." Jamie Lee Curtis and Ana De Armas were also on hand to present the footage, which went over like gangbusters. Digging around online, there isn't a single negative reaction in the bunch to what was shown.

Jamie Lee Curtis, Ana de Armas Debut Footage of Whodunit Murder Mystery ‘Knives Out’
Daniel Craig is on the case in Lionsgate and Mrc’s “Knives Out,” which was prominently featured during the studio’s presentation with footage introduced by writer-director Rian Johnson and stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Ana de Armas.

Heavily inspired by Agatha Christie’s murder mystery novels, the film follows a stately Southern investigator named Benoit Blanc and his partner Troy Archer — played respectively by Craig and Lakeith Stanfield — as they investigate the murder of a wealthy 85-year-old (Christopher Plummer) on his birthday. And everyone in the victim’s extremely dysfunctional family is a suspect.
