Tradecraft: All The Time In The World

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Robert Rodriguez's previously announced reboot of the Spy Kids franchise (the one he compared to Casino Royale) has undergone a title change that should either please or infuriate James Bond fans: instead of the lame Spy Kids 4: Armageddon, it will now be known by the much more awesome title Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World.  But the question is: is that On Her Majesty's Secret Service-derived moniker too awesome for Spy Kids?  It would make a pretty awesome proper Bond title, in the vein of The World is Not Enough, would it not?  Oh well.  It's Spy Kids now.  Unsurprisingly (given the kiddie franchise's history of wild sci-fi villains from outside the genre), in these hands that title means that the bad guy ("the Time Keeper") is out to stop time.  Also, Jessica Alba will star as the new spy kids' step mom.  The $30 million 3D movie starts shooting in Austin next month.
