"I always want to make one pretty quickly, but you really can't film them until the summertime because the kids have to do schooling no matter what, but they have more school that age during the non-summer break," he said.

"You would only get them for an hour or two on set. You get them for about four or five hours on summer break, so it's a little easier to film them. That would be great.

"The first Spy Kids series we had a movie in the theater every year for three years straight for Spy Kids 1, 2, and 3. They were consecutive. We were just finishing one and starting the next, so that would be really great.

"But fortunately, with these kids, we got them so young, they're younger than the original Spy Kids. They're only eight years old, so we've got them for several years."

He added that, Hollywood strikes depending, being able to film a follow-up next summer "would be great", explaining that: "That'd give me time to write something really robust and fun."

Spy Kids: Armageddon can be streamed on Netflix now. The original trilogy can be streamed on Sky Go and NOW.
