Rodriguez has written and directed all four of the previous installments and this time decided to make the film a family occasion behind the scenes too. Spy Kids: Armageddon is co-written by Rodriguez and his son Racer Max.
About the new film and working with his family on it, Rodriguez said the following:
“I’ve heard from so many families telling me how much they’ve enjoyed these films over the course of their lives. And now a lot of kids who enjoyed the first films as children are parents themselves and enjoy sharing them with their kids. The Spy Kids franchise was based on my growing up in a family of ten kids with an FBI special agent Uncle. It’s been very exciting for me and my kids to work on this film together as a family, for other families to enjoy.”
