Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to bring back his old glory with Netflix’s Fubar. While he is still known for his iconic role in The Terminator franchise, his humor mixed with his physique and accent only added to the charm for future roles. He still stars in projects as a lead hero, but time and age have certainly led to some tweaks.

In his 70s now, the entertainer managed to garner an audience for his powerful delivery and, of course, brand name. Ever since details of his Netflix series began coming out, fans felt a Déjà vu moment. While it seemed inviting, it reminded many of his 1994 movie. When asked, the legend himself gave an explanation.

Sometimes an actor plays a character so well, it withstands the test of time. Likely why there are speculations of Fubar being similar to his 1994 comedy thriller True Lies. During an interview, the Austrian Oak revealed to TheHollywoodReporter that it was indeed true. He explained how executive producer David Ellison proposed the idea to Schwarzenegger. “It has to be something where I can use all my aspects and talents,” they discussed. The story needed to be sweet and show his real age instead of trying to make him look young.

So it was the executive producer who came up with the idea to get inspiration from True Lies. But instead of starring opposite Jamie Lee Curtis as a lover, he will play the role of a father and tag along with his daughter, who is played by Monica Barbaro.
