This is the first sequel to Machete, which was itself a feature length remake of a Grindhouse trailer. This time Machete has to save the whole world from a mad-man and his bombs, but Machete Kills is SO much more than that, and way way less too…
If you thought Robert Rodriguez couldn’t do much more with the Spy Kids franchise after Spy Kids 3-D, think again. To appeal to those who have kids, but want to still live a life of adventure, your role model shall now be Jessica Alba – Spy Mom.
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.
Spy Kids 4 opens August 19, 2011.
There’s a new Spy Kids movie coming our way, and while we (meaning me) doesn’t give a crap if the young kids are now all growed up, I am interested in Jessica Alba as the villain… dressed in leather…
According to IMDB the plot of the film features mom returning to the life of spying
A mother returns to her old profession — she’s a retired spy — in order to prevent a villain bent on stopping time.

Show Notes after the Jump!
Warner Bros. has announced it will adapt Frank Miller’s Ronin for the big screen, but surprisingly Miller won’t be writing the adaptation. That task has been assigned to scribe Joby Harold, who most recently wrote and directed Awake staring Jessica Alba.
“Ronin,” which Miller wrote and drew in the early 1980s, centers on a masterless samurai who is reincarnated in a dystopic near-future New York populated by squatters, factions and mutants. The ronin must try to destroy a demon with a mystic sword, which also is found in New York.
Sylvain White has been hired to direct the film. There is no word if Frank Miller will be involved in the project.
