Lionsgate has put out a new synopsis for “The Spy Next Door”, which stars Jackie Chan and is to start appearing in theaters on January 16th:
The new synopsis reads:
Lionsgate’s family action comedy THE SPY NEXT DOOR stars Jackie Chan as Bob Ho, an undercover CIA superspy who decides to give up his career in espionage to settle down with his next-door neighbor and girlfriend, Gillian (Amber Valletta). But Bob has one more mission to complete before Gillian agrees to marry him: winning over her three opinionated kids.
When Gillian suddenly has to leave town, Bob volunteers to babysit the children so he can earn their approval. But when one of the kids mistakenly downloads a top-secret formula from his computer, Bob’s archenemy, a Russian terrorist, moves in for the attack, forcing Bob to juggle the roles of spy and prospective stepfather in the most challenging mission of his career!
Martial arts superstar Jackie Chan is joined by an talented supporting cast featuring Amber Valletta (PREMONITION, TRANSPORTER 2, HITCH), George Lopez (BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA, SWING VOTE, “George Lopez”), Billy Ray Cyrus (”Hannah Montana”), Magnus Scheving (LAZYTOWN), Madeline Carroll (SWING VOTE), Will Shadley (”Dirty Sexy Money”), and Alina Foley. THE SPY NEXT DOOR is directed by Brian Levent (ARE WE THERE YET?, SNOW DOGS, THE FLINTSTONES) from a screenplay by Greg Poirier (NATIONAL TREASURE: BOOK OF SECRETS). The film is produced by Robert Simonds and Ryan Kavanaugh.
I didn't realise the script was by the same guy who wrote National Treasure - that was a good movie! Still the script is ultimately only as a good as what the director makes of it so we will have to wait and see. I have to admit liking Snow Dogs and the Flintstones (Shh) but have not seen Are We There Yet.
