Variety reports this morning that rising comedy star, Joel McHale, has been cast in a lead role in Robert Rodriguez's upcoming Spy Kids movie. Spy Kids: All the Time in the World is being billed as a reboot to the mega-blockbuster franchise.
In the film, McHale will play a "spy-hunting reporter" married to Jessica Alba's retired spy character. Alba will be the stepmother to McHale's kids, who become spies, or SPY KIDS, if you will. According to ComingSoon.net, the kids will face off against the villainous Time Keeper, who is out to stop time.
The film is already set for an August 19th release next year. While the movie itself doesn't interest me at all, I am happy to think McHale will get a big blockbuster under his belt, which will hopefully net him more roles in the future. The three previous Spy Kids films grossed $360 Million worldwide.
