This project is a continuation of the successful franchise “Spy Kids”, in which Daryl Sabara and Alexa Vega played the roles of the children whose parents – interpreted by Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino – are super spies. These three previous films were written and directed by Robert Rodriguez.
Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara are no longer kids – Vega has almost 23 years and is recently engaged – but Rodriguez wants to continue the franchise.
In this new film project, Jessica Alba will play a former spy who will be reactivated. Jessica Alba, who is in real life mother to a two-years-old daughter, will play the role of a baby’s mother, who has also two adolescence stepchildren.
The actors distributed in the roles of two children will be the new “Spy Kids”. According to U.S. press, Banderas, Vega and Sabara will resume their previous roles.
Like most of his films, “Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World” will be filmed in the hometown of Robert Rodriguez: Austin, in Texas, and will have a smaller budget of 30 million dollars. Filming will begin next month and will be made with 3D technology.
This project marks the third collaboration between Jessica Alba and Robert Rodriguez, after “Sin City” (2005) and “Forms” which will premiere on September 3.
Jessica Alba has become known through the television series “Dark Angel”, and gained fame through roles in the movie “Honey” (2003), “Sin City” (2005) and “The Fantastic 4” (2005).
