Actress Says 'Sin City' Sequel Is "Only A Matter Of Time"Jessica Alba, the newest addition to the "Little Fockers" cast, is a little loopy and a little candid.

Rodriguez spoke highly of the script (by "Zombieland" scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick), and it looked likely to be the director's next film after he completed the currently-filming "Spy Kids 4."
