The official plot synopsis has been released for Robert Rodriguez‘ latest installment of the Spy Kids franchise. The full title for the film is Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World, and it features Jessica Alba and Joel McHale in the lead roles. According to a press release sent out by the studio they’ll get a little help from Jeremy Piven, who’s also joined the cast.
On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson (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 (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 (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.
Antonio Banderes and Danny Trejo are also expected to make an appearance in the sequel. This makes us feel unbelievably old. This is where the old meets new. We’re assuming that Alba’s character is a cousin or an aunt to the original spies because her maiden name is the same as Carmen and Juni’s.
Spy Kids 4 is currently in production and will be released in 3D on August 19, 2011.
