Gina Rodriguez Cast As Carmen Sandiego In Live-Action Netflix Film”

After ordering a new animinated series based on Carmen Sandiego with Rodriguez voicing Sandiego, Netflix acquired the rights to a Carmen Sandiego live action feature film with Rodriguez playing the character, according to a report from Deadline.

Gina Rodriguez will produce the film, along with starring in it. Rodriguez is mostly known for her role in Jane the Virgin, which she has won a Golden Globe for. Misher's Misher Films produced Miss Bala.

Kevin Misher and Caroline Fraser will also produce. The launch of the animated series next year will be accompanied by a line of new Carmen Sandiego books from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Starting as an educational computer game series and later adapted as an animated series, Carmen Sandiego centers on the globe-trotting thief that is the nemesis of the ACME detection agency.

The movie will be a standalone Carmen adventure that will embrace the beloved '90s property.

The film is among one of Rodriguez's latest feature projects-she was most recently seen in the Natalie Portman-led film Annihilation. Catherine Hardwicke directed Miss Bala, the remake of the Best Foreign Film Oscar nominated Mexican pic about a beauty pageant contestant who witnesses the brutality of a drug gang and is dragged into their risky business. There's no writer or director attached yet, but Rodriguez will also serve as a producer.
