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 anywhere. Thankfully, James Cameron says that will change sometime in the near future, but we don’t know when.
In the meantime, it looks like we may get a new version of True Lies on television before the original movie ends up available in an HD format. James Cameron is executive producing a TV series reboot of True Lies in the works at 20th Century Fox Television, but unfortunately, there’s one name involved that makes us a little less excited about this prospective TV show.

There was a slight sense of dread when Fox announced their Lethal Weapon television series. When it comes to film to TV adaptations, shows like Fargo are the exception, not the rule. These adaptations rarely transcend their predecessor or take the story in a new direction, and Lethal Weapon does stumble in that regard. The pilot is, however, far from the misfire some people predicted after we saw the off-putting trailer for the show. Its quality is inconsistent, especially when it comes to the jokes, but Lethal Weapon, for what it is, is just fine.

The wheel of fate spins. Another artist is pulled into the vortex of the always-in-the-works, never-coming-to-pass Masters of the Universe reboot. The cycle continues and it shall continue, even as our world turns to dust and the universe slowly stumbles toward oblivion.

This time around, that director is McG, who is best known for directing the Charlie’s Angels movies and Terminator: Salvation. But don’t get too attached to this news – this property has a long history of attaching talent and losing talent and attaching talent and losing talent and…you know.
