Wow. Robert Rodriguez’s Netflix superhero movie We Can Be Heroes is looking to be a huge undertaking, with a giant all-star cast similar to the director’s Spy Kids franchise. Along with the previously-announced Priyanka Chopra Jonas, the film will now include Pedro Pascal, Christian Slater, Boyd Holbrook, Sung Kang, and many many more.
Rodriguez will produce, write, and direct the original superhero movie, which finds alien invaders kidnapping Earth’s superheroes, causing their kids to team up and come to the rescue. Yep, very Spy Kids-esque. Also joining the cast are YaYa Gosselin, Akira Akbar, Andrew Diaz, Andy Walken, Hala Finley, Isaiah Russell-Bailey, Lotus Blossom, Lyon Daniels, Nathan Blair, Vivien Lyra Blair, Adriana Barraza, and Christopher McDonald.
A lot of familiar faces here, including Fast & Furious’ Kang and Logan‘s Holbrook. Some of the other lesser names you may recognize upon seeing them are Akira Akbar who played young Monica Rambeau in Captain Marvel, and YaYa Gosselin from The Purge TV series and the movie Peppermint with Jennifer Garner.
Filming on We Can Be Heroes is going on now, so we should see it sometime in 2020. [Deadline]
