This makes sense. Someone mentioned it earlier in the day having something to do with Machete.
There does seem to be plenty of marketing people on Fark.

Thank Christ. There's way too much original stuff in Hollywood.  They need to start rebooting classic films from the 2000s. Because there's no method available yet for seeing the originals.

Well, if Robert Rodriguez is involved, then you know that Danny Trejo will be in it.   It's like he's contractually obligated to put him in every farkin' film he makes.

Who can replace Antonio Banderas?

Is Alexa Vega going to play the mother this time?

Pick a cop show on CBS. There's usually  token Latino they can cast.

I think it's fair to note that the media tends to mistake sequels to titles that haven't had updates in a while for reboots/reimaginings with some frequency.

Rodriguez had a recent project with Pedro Pascal where he plays... a nearly identical character role to Banderas' in the first Spy Kids, so maybe him?

Alan Cumming was enjoyable in the first one, but there really is only one reason to watch those movies.

I never saw a Spy Kids movie but I sure as hell know who Carla Gugino is.

Only if we can get her to re-enact this music video.

With her being an adult now, we can enjoy it more, with less having a seat over there.

I remember seeing a lot of ads for Alita but I had no idea RR directed

Benedict Cumberbatch can play the grandpa.

Makes sense, they "rebooted" Sharkboy and Lavagirl on Netflix or something with them as parents.

/with the original Lavagirl

The superhero thingy on Netflix was definitely much less of an acid trip than the original Sharkboy & Lavagirl though.

It was definitely for kids, but I enjoyed the first viewing.  By the fifth time in a single week, I was done with the song "We Can Be Heroes"

Sharkboy and lavagirl on shrooms is still one of the most singularly weird experiences of my lifetime.

Well, Machete was spun off into his own series from spy kids and his Alexa Vega showed up as Killjoy. She did some naughty flirting with her uncle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?​v=BBNJ5j​rJRU4
