That thing Tom Arnold said in yesterday's Times about James Cameron's upcoming True Lies sequel starring him and Arnold Schwarzenegger? You won't believe this — it was made up! Ain't It Cool News received the following e-mail from Cameron: "I think Tom was joking. There are no plans for a True Lies 2. I don't know about the creative direction thing.... I'm always down for a good action-comedy (actually, we always classified the film as a 'domestic epic'). But since September 11, I've never felt comfortable generating laughs with nuke-toting Islamic fundamentalist terrorists. True Lies, even though it has a cautionary thread underneath the pratfalls, is in a strange way a product of a more innocent time. But if we ever do another True Lies, I wouldn't dream of doing it without Tom. He's a good friend and a very funny guy." [Ain't It Cool]
