Billy Magnussen is the latest actor to join the cast of Netflix’s Spy Kids reboot. He joins the previously announced Gina Rodriguez, Zachary Levi, Everly Carganilla, and Connor Esterson. Details surrounding Magnussen’s role are being kept under wraps.
The latest Spy Kids film, which hails from franchise creator Robert Rodriguez, is set after the children of the world’s greatest secret agents unwittingly help a powerful game develop and unleash a computer virus allowing him to control all technology. This will lead the children to become spies themselves as they seek to save both their parents and the rest of the world. Rodriguez is on board to direct and produce the film. He will also co-write it alongside Racer Max.
Magnussen has had quite a busy year. The actor most recently starred in the James Bond film, No Time to Die, as well as the Sopranos prequel, The Many Saints of Newark. He’s next set to appear in Netflix’s Lift with the likes of Kevin Hart, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Vincent D’Onofrio. He’ll also executive produce and star in the film Reunion, which also features Chace Crawford (The Boys) and Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries). He was also set to appear in a Disney+ spinoff featuring his character from Aladdin, however, that project looks to still be in development.
Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger will produce the film and oversee development and production. While Elizabeth Avellan and Max will join as producers. Netflix’s Nick Nesbit will serve as a creative lead on the reboot.
As of now, the Spy Kids reboot does not yet have a release date on Netflix.
