Fresh off directing three episodes of the Disney+ Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett, Robert Rodriguez is set to helm a Spy Kids reboot for Netflix.

Per the Hollywood Reporter, the streaming platform announced it’s teaming with Rodriguez to relaunch the property. He will write, direct, and produce the new film, which will be the first in the family comedy series since 2011’s Spy Kids: All the Time in the World. Rodriguez launched the franchise in 2001, and acted as director/writer/producer on all four entries. He also provided the music for 3-D and All the Time in the World

The original Spy Kids starred Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino as secret agents rescued by their children, portrayed by Alexa Vegas and Daryl Sabara. Netflix has yet to announce plot details or information regarding the cast. With a total global box office of over $550 million, each entry was produced on a modest budget and performed well financially. 

This isn’t Rodriguez’s first project for the streamer, as he served as an executive producer on the short-lived animated series Spy Kids: Mission Critical in 2018. He also directed/wrote/produced Netflix’s We Can Be Heroes, which did well enough on the platform for development to start on the sequel. According to the streamer in early 2021, 44 million households watched at least two minutes after the superhero film’s debut on Christmas Day 2020. 

He recently wrapped production on the Ben Affleck-starring sci-fi thriller Hypnotic, although a release date has yet to be announced.
