Steve Howey to star in True Lies TV adaptation
It remains to be seen who will be stepping into the shoes of Jamie Lee Curtis
Steve Howey, best known for playing Kevin Ball in Shameless, is set to headline the TV adaption of James Cameron's 1994 action comedy True Lies, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis in the lead roles.
The series is currently in works at CBS. The pilot of the show has been scripted by Matt Nix, while Anthony Hemingway, whose directorial credits include American Crime Story and The Purge, will be directing the first episode.
The plot of the pilot will reportedly follow a suburban wife who discovers that her computer consultant husband, played by Howey, leads a double life as an international spy, a discovery that pushes her life into danger and adventure. The two eventually team up on a mission that also rejuvenates their fading relationship.
It remains to be seen who will be stepping into the shoes of Jamie Lee Curtis. Nix and Hemingway will also be serving as executive producers
