According to Deadline sources, Skydance Media has acquired the rights to restart the Spy Kids franchise from Spyglass Media. The new film will be written and directed by original director Robert Rodriguez.
There are no plot details. It is known that the events of the film will unfold around a multinational family.
Skydance will serve as the lead studio for the production, while Gary Barber and Peter Oylatager of Spyglass will executive produce. The film has no actors, as well as the expected release date.
Previous films in the Spy Kids franchise have featured Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Junie Cortez (Daryl Sabara), the children of former secret agents Gregorio (Antonio Banderas) and Ingrid Cortez (Carla Gugino). By chance, children have to try on the role of spies.
