Gina Rodriguez to star as Carmen Sandiego in Netflix's live-action feature film
Gina Rodriguez is doubling up her Carmen Sandiego duty at Netflix.
EW has learned that the Jane the Virgin star will play the titular role in a live-action feature film about the fictional thieving villain from the 1990s educational children’s series.
This will make two outings for Rodriguez as Carmen as the streaming network announced last year that it had greenlit an original animated series, set to premiere in 2019, about the international criminal with Rodriguez voicing the cartoon avatar. The live-action version will also be produced by Rodriguez through her I Can and I Will production company, alongside Kevin Misher and Caroline Fraser.
No writer or producer is attached yet, but we do know that the movie will be a stand-alone Carmen adventure.
Deadline was first to report the news.
