Joel McHale Joins “Spy Kids 4”

Hunky funnyman Joel McHale (“Community,” “The Soup”) is in final negotiations to join “Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World” for Dimension Films says Variety.

McHale will star as a spy-hunting reporter married to Jessica Alba’s character, a retired spy turned housewife and stepmother to his kids who will become the new titular Spy Kids.

The sub-$30 million 3D project kicks off filming in Austin, Texas this month with Rodriguez returning as writer and director on what is essentially a reboot of the franchise.
