'90s kids have even more to get excited about as Carmen Sandiego comes to Netflix as a feature film. Jane the Virgin and Annihilation star Gina Rodriguez will play the title character in the live action movie, according to Deadline. She is also listed as a co-producer through her I Can and I Will production company.

Rodriquez is already set to voice Carmen in the Netflix reboot of the popular animated series, due in 2019 along with a line of books from the owner of the property, educational publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Deadline says the film will be a standalone adventure about the red-hatted world traveler, and that no writer or director is as yet attached to the project. This isn't the first plan to bring the fictional detective to feature films; Jennifer Lopez was attached to the property back in 2012, after a previous attempt had been made with Sandra Bullock.
