Family action comedy Spy Kids centers on the Cortez family. It was made by Rodriguez and has various Latino elements, giving the spy genre a new spin. In the first movie, Carmen and Juni, a brother and sister team, learn that their parents are spies who have been called back from a ten-year retirement. The kids must hone their spying abilities to save their parents after they are kidnapped.

This most recent installment of the Spy Kids series takes place after the world’s top secret agents’ kids accidentally assist a game developer in unleashing a computer virus that gives him control over all technology, forcing them to turn into spies in order to save their parents and the entire world. Skydance, which will manage development and production, will employ David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger as producers. Additionally producing are Max and Elizabeth Avellan. Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre from Spyglass will serve as executive producers. The movie’s Netflix (Sweet Home Season 2) creative lead will be Nick Nesbit

Juni and Carmen are discovered to be OSS members in the second installment of the franchise, Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams. The Giggles siblings’ mischief causes Juni to lose her job, therefore things don’t last long. When they learned of their plan to rule the globe using the transmooker device, they realized they had to stop them and win back Juni’s membership. The third book concludes the Cortez-centered plotline with Juni rescuing Carmen from a computer game gone wrong. The Timekeeper was preventing The Timekeeper from taking control of the globe until a sequel featuring retired spy Marissa (Jessica Alba) and her stepchildren was released in 2011.

In the upcoming episode, we’ll follow the young spies of the world as they unwittingly assist a crazed mastermind in unleashing a computer virus that grants him control over all technology. To save their parents and the planet, the kids must band together.

The movie will be directed by Rodriguez again, and he will also create the script and produce it. Co-author of the piece is Racer Max. Skydance, which is in charge of the overall production, will have David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger on its production team.

Max and Elizabeth Avellan will also work as producers. Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre from Spyglass are executive producers. Nick Nesbit will serve as the project’s creative head for Netflix (You Don’t Know Me Season 2).

Among Rodriguez’s other notable works is The Book of Boba Fett, a Disney+ original Star Wars series for which he worked as both director and executive producer. He has also directed episodes of The Mandalorian on Disney+. In addition to appearances in popular film franchises like the Predator film series and the Mexico trilogy, which includes Once Upon a Time in Mexico, his filmography spans a variety of genres. Sin City, Machete, Bedhead, Desperado, and other works are among his other creations. Numerous award-giving bodies, including Sundance, Satellite Awards, and even the Grammy Awards, have acknowledged Rodriguez’s filmmaking brilliance.
