Netflix’s film Carmen Sandiego lands Game Night Writer

Now we know where Carmen Sandiego of Netflix is ​​in the world.

As confirmed Deadline the project is in the hands of Mark Perez Game Night who has just been typed as screenwriter of the film. While Carmen Sandiego still has no director for Perez, she has a star that Perez can inspire: Gina Rodriguez, better known for her role in CW comedy -Frame series Jane the Virgin . Rodriguez will not only be at the head of Carmen Sandiego's film that Perez imagined, but she will also be executive producer of the project and lend her voice to the main character in an animated TV series set to debut on Netflix in 2019.

Perez found immense success in Game Night the Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams-starrer who came out of the left field to become one of this year's best comedy movies. The film, directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, has grossed $ 117.4 million to date, a significant gain over its $ 37 million production budget. Carmen Sandiego will be much wiser than Game Night – no murders in the middle of the road, nonsense, burglaries and drums in sight – but that will not be a problem for Perez. He has already written the 2002 family comedy The Country Bears and worked on the history of the 2006 sports comedy Herbie: Fully Loaded starring Lindsay Lohan and housed at Walt Disney Pictures.

Perez's ability to marry comic elements with high stakes and real surprises, as demonstrated Game Night is probably what attracted Netflix and pushed the company to offer Carmen Sandiego ] concert, but her experience in writing for a younger audience probably helped seal the case.

Netflix has no release date in pencil for Carmen Sandiego . We will keep you informed as soon as the streamer makes an announcement in this regard.
