Oh shi…taki mushrooms! It’s happening! Netflix’s Spy Kids reboot, which was announced back in March, has found its leading spy family in Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez, Shazam’s Zachary Levi, Yes Day’s Everly Carganilla, and newcomer Connor Esterson.
According to Deadline, the creator behind the original early ’00s Spy Kids movies, Robert Rodriguez returns for the Netflix reboot as writer, producer, and director, with the aim to introduce a whole new generation to a new family of spies.
The original Y2K movies starred Antonio Banderas, Daryl Sabara, Carla Gugino, and Alexa PenaVega — with cameo features from several famous faces throughout — as The Cortez, AKA our favorite butt-kicking family of secret spies.
The new movie will be “set after the children of the world’s greatest secret agents unwittingly help a powerful game developer unleash a computer virus that gives him control of all technology, leading them to become spies themselves to save their parents and the world,” according to the synopsis.
Is there a full cast list for the Spy Kids reboot?
The untitled Netflix Spy Kids project is still in its early days of production, so if you’re trying to peep at the full cast list, you’re a bit too early for that. For the moment, just Gina Rodriguez, Zachary Levi, Everly Carganilla, and Connor Esterson have been announced. However, we’re sure in the following weeks more additions will be made.
