Maybe you've all heard -- maybe you haven't -- maybe I'm the only one who cares.
But there's going to be a Spy Kids 4.
Okay, I love those movies. Always have. I was probably in kindergarten or first grade when the first one came out, and everything about it -- the gadgets, the missions, the fact that the kids were spies -- fascinated me.
Also, the thumb-people and the guy with too many heads really freaked me out.
I really don't know about this fourth movie, though. Carmen and Juni are adults now, and according to a Yahoo! article (which is how I found out about the movie in the first place), they're "still with the OSS and give the new kids -- Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook) -- some pointers and much needed spy gadgets in their battle against the fiendish Timekeeper".
All this kind of reminds me of what they do in books sometimes -- finish a series, then start a new, slightly related one, usually with an original character's kid as the new main character. I hate it when they do that, so I figure I won't like this movie, if I even convince myself to watch it.
So really, in a small way, this has to do with writing. Granted, the connection is pretty slim. And sort of tacked onto the end, almost like an afterthought.
But mostly, it wasn't.
