Jessica Alba moving from “Machete” to fourth “Spy Kids” film

By Sean O’Connell Robert Rodriguez has a tendency to work with the same actors time and again, be it Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, or Danny Trejo, the star of his latest action thriller, “Machete.” Now it sounds like a killer “Machete” babe will appear in Rodriguez’s next picture.

Jessica Alba will play a retired spy who will be reactivated in time for “Spy Kids 4,” according to Heat Vision. A reboot of the popular franchise, the new “Spy Kids” is expected to recast new children where Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara. The report goes on to say Rodriguez still needs to cast Alba’s husband, as well as The Time Keeper, a villain who seeks to stop time.

That’s a much kid-friendlier role than the part Alba plays in “Machete.” She’s Sartana, a law enforcement agent forced to help Trejo’s vigilante on his mission of vengeance. Alba also dabbled in violent tactics in Michael Winterbottom’s “The Killer Inside Me,” so we know she’s capable of stretching her acting muscles. But a turn in “Spy Kids” could be a lot of fun for the young actress.

In the meantime, “Machete” will open nationwide on Sept. 3.
