Zachari Levi and Gina Rodeiguez on the Star red carpet

The Spy Kids franchise is back with its original creator Robert Rodriguez in a remake, with some new faces along for the ride.

Levi and Rodriguez co-stars as Joseph and Mary in The Star. Rodriguez tends to keep his universes connected and we hope to see more of him in the future. We Could be Heroes was directed by him and featured characters from his books.

This will be the fifth film in the series, after the fourth entry, Spy Kids: All the Time in the World, and will feature two newcomers. The movie will center around them as the children of the world's greatest secret agents, who inadvertently 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. Rodriguez and Racer Max wrote the Spyglass and Skydance release.
