Skydance Media wants to relaunch the Spy Kids cinema license with a reboot.
In order to diversify its portfolio, and since the acquisition of the license rights, Skydance Media (The Old Guard, Top Gun Maverick, Jurassic World Dominion) is ready to give another chance to Spy Kids as well as to its creator, Robert Rodriguez, who will be in charge of writing and directing a reboot focusing on a multicultural family. The returns of comedians Alexa Vega, Daryl Sabara, Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino are compromised. Peter Oillataguerre and Gary Barber of Spyglass Media Group (Scream, Hellraiser, Perfect Strangers, Short Circuit) will also be executive producers.

Note that a first “reboot” had been produced in the form of a series of animation for Netflix , but the success was not there you despite the presence of the main characters of the four films of the duo Dimension Films and Troublemaker Studios: “ Children of spies, Juni and Carmen Cortez enter the academy of the OSS (Organization of Super Spies). This secret school is for future spies and children of secret agents. Juni and Carmen form a team of young spies to take on the forces of SWAMP (for The Super Winners of the Apocalypse for the Massacre of the Population) and their evil leader, the Golden Cortex, who wants revenge on the OSS. ”
