Jessica Alba (last seen in the The Killer Inside Me) is in advanced talks to star in the fourth installment of the successful franchise Spy Kids.

Despite the film being a reboot of sorts, original cast members including Antonio Banderas, Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara are expected to return in some capacity.

Synopsis: Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World will center on a retired spy (Alba) who has been reactivated. The actress, mother of a toddler in real life, will be playing the mother of a baby and two preteen stepchildren.

Robert Rodriguez will return as director, with shooting expected to take place in Austin next month.

THR reported this one.
