According to Discussing Film, Robert Rodriguez will write and direct ‘We Can Be Heroes’ for Netflix. The film is based on an original idea from Rodriguez, that has franchise potential, focused on an ‘Avengers’-style children team.
Rodriguez has gone back and forth between R-rated fare and family friendly flicks (thanks in part to his children’s ideas). He is known for “The Mexico Trilogy,” which is made up of ‘El Mariachi,’ ‘Desperado,’ and ‘Once Upon a Time in Mexico.’ Other highlights from his resume include the ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ franchise, the ‘Sin City’ films, the ‘Machete’ films, and the ‘Spy Kids’ franchise. His most recent film was the manga adaptation ‘Alita: Battle Angel,’ which may have to wait on a sequel (if it gets one) considering Rodriguez’s involvement in ‘We Can Be Heroes.’
Moreover, the premise is below:
“A young girl, the daughter of a retired superhero, discovers that she has powers and puts together a group of other young heroes to help stop an alien invasion.”
Further, the film is currently eyeing a June production start. Also, the project is already in the casting stage for the various roles.
Netflix has not set a release date as of now.
