Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Netflix.


The popular streaming platform is gearing up to create a live-action feature film for Carmen Sandiego, and they've already landed their leading lady: Gina Rodriguez.


The network announced the big news on Monday, according to Deadline. As of now, no writer or director is yet attached to the movie. 

I already have the fedora and coat. So it's definitely true.

The film is being described as a "standalone Carmen adventure that will embrace the beloved Ninetiess property," reports Deadline. The Jane the Virgin star will also serve as a producer on the project. 


The actress has yet to make a public statement on her new Netflix gig, but used Twitter on Monday to retweet Deadline's announcement. She is already attached to voice Carmen Sandiego in an animated series for Netflix that will debut sometime in 2019.
