Bad news about the Spy School movie — for now

Hey everyone –

I know you have been waiting a long time for an update about the Spy School movie — and I am sure this is not what you were hoping for.  It’s certainly not what I was hoping for.

After 54 weeks of doing nothing with the movie script, Disney decided that they were not going to move forward with the Spy School movie.

Why?  I don’t really have a great answer for that.  I was told that Disney had some concerns with the story involving kids in real danger — which you’d think they would have been able to figure out was part of the plot long ago, given the title.

Sadly, this kind of thing happens a lot in Hollywood.  As I keep saying, it is very hard to get a movie made.

This does not mean the movie will never get made.  My agents can now try to set the project up at another movie studio or streaming service.  We will see what happens.

In the meantime, feel free to write angry letters to Disney or cancel your Disney + accounts in protest.

  8. Dear Mr. Gibbs, I was wondering if you could make an animated movie. Since Disney had some concerns about kids being in real danger, your studio could make a movie without real people. Thanks for all you do.?

    I have also been writing books since i was young. So I have lots of ideas. Therefore, while i am thankful for your offer, I do not solicit ideas from readers.

  11. Christopher G –

    I have already thought of turning all of my series into movies. It’s not me that you have to convince; it’s Hollywood.

  12. Hi Mr Gibbs, this is from Endrik.

    I’ve been wanting to be an actor since 2018, when I was 6, and I’m about to be 12. If Hollywood does end up making a SS movie, which movie production company do you think will produce it, so then if that company does produce it, I can audition for Ben Ripley? I love the books too, they’re very relatable.

  13. Endrik –

    I have no idea which company would produce the SS movie — and if they do, I have no idea how auditions will be done. If there are open auditions, then I will certainly post details on this site.

  14. Hi Stuart Gibbs it is Rex and wanted to say that I just borrowed a copy of spy school goes north and I loved it and any idea when the next graphic novel will come out?

  15. Rex –
