In the plot, Steve will star as Harry, the role played in the film by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The character is described as “a benign, play-it-safe, seemingly risk-averse computer salesman and devoted family man, married with two kids. But in reality, Harry is an undercover operative, a first-class spy working for a covert U.S. Intelligence organization.”

Here’s more of the plot summary: “Harry’s unfulfilled suburban wife is propelled into a life of danger and adventure when she’s recruited to work alongside him to save the world as they try to revitalize their passionless marriage.”

The role of the wife, played in the movie by Jamie Lee Curtis, hasn’t been revealed yet.

A series version of True Lies was first attempted in 2017 by Fox with a pilot commitment. True Lies was originally released in 1994, and grossed over $378 million worldwide.

James Cameron, the director of the original film, will executive produce.
