Rowan Blanchard & Mason Cook Are The New Agents



With principal photography now underway on Robert Rodriguez's "Spy Kids 4," the last pieces of casting have fallen into place. Jeremy Piven joins the previously announced Jessica Alba and Joel McHale with Rowan Blanchard (TV’s “Dancelot Robot“) and Mason Cook (“Treasure Buddies“) stepping in as the newest titular spies. Rounding things out, and reprising their roles from the previous films are Antonio Banderas, Danny Trejo, Alexa Vega (“From Prada To Nada”) and Daryl Sabara (“Machete”).

So what will this one be about? As was hinted in early reports about the film, the picture essentially reboots the "Spy Kids" franchise, as Alba plays a former agent herself, whose kids are drawn into the action when Armageddon approaches. Piven will be using his ample supply of smarm to play the villain. Full synopsis after the jump:

On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) has it all...married to a famous spy hunting television reporter, a new baby and intelligent twin step kids. But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), who clearly don’t want her around, is her toughest challenge yet. Also, her husband, Wilbur (Joel McHale), wouldn’t know a spy if he lived with one which is exactly the case - Marissa’s a retired secret agent.

Marissa’s world is turned upside down when the maniacal Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the planet and she’s called back into action by the head of OSS, home of the greatest spies and where the now-defunct Spy Kids division was created. With Armageddon quickly approaching, Rebecca and Cecil are thrust into action when they learn their boring stepmom was once a top agent and now the world’s most competitive ten year olds are forced to put their bickering aside and rely on their wits. With a little help from a couple of very familiar Spy Kids, Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara), and some mind-blowing gadgets, they just may be able to save the world and possibly bring their family together while they’re at it.

The film is shooting entirely in Austin and will hit theaters at the end of next summer on August 19, 2011 in 3D, of course.
