Robert Rodriguez, who created the original series, has returned for the upcoming reboot, which he will write and direct.
Spyglass Media, which owns the “Spy Kids” franchise, is also on board. Skydance will serve as the lead studio and oversee development and production, while Spyglass execs Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre will executive produce. Though plot details are thin, the next generation of “Spy Kids” will revolve around the activities of a multicultural family.
The original “Spy Kids” movie centered on Carmen and Juni Cortez (Alexa PenaVega and Daryl Sabara), two young kids unaware that their parents (Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino) work for the Organization of Super Spies. Eventually, the Cortez children join the family business of espionage. The first film was hugely popular among younger and older audiences alike,
