Zachary Levi and Gina Rodriguez Cast in Spy Kids Reboot at Netflix
Netflix has announced that Zachary Levi and Gina Rodriguez have been cast in the upcoming reboot film Spy Kids. Starring alongside Levi and Rodriguez will also be Everly Carganilla and Connor Esterson. Their roles are yet to be confirmed but it seems as if the famous spy family has been put together for the upcoming reimagined film.
Spy Kids was created by Robert Rodriguez in 2001 and follows two siblings who get caught up with the spy agency their parents work for. After they save the world, a new division dedicated to young agents is created and led to the sequel films Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams and Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over. Rodriguez wrote and directed all three films with a soft reboot in 2011 titled Spy Kids: All the Time in the World also arriving as the final installment.
Netflix has already contributed to the Spy Kids franchise with the animated series Spy Kids: Mission Critical. The main installments in the franchise have benefited from Rodriguez’s involvement and the reboot is sure to garner interest and have the creative touch needed to compete with the nostalgia and quality of the original trilogy. There aren’t currently any details on the Spy Kids reboot’s plot.
The Spy Kids reboot is being developed by Netflix, Skydance, and Spyglass Media with Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre acting as executive producers. David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger will produce.
There is currently no release date for the Spy Kids reboot.
