Four slink in for 'Spy' tale


George Lopez, Billy Ray Cyrus, Amber Valletta and Katherine Boecher have joined Jackie Chan for "The Spy Next Door."

Brian Levant is directing the Relativity comedy, which is being produced by Robert Simonds and Ryan Kavanaugh.

The movie centers on a man (Chan) asked to baby-sit his neighbor's children who must protect them from secret agents after one of the kids accidentally downloads a code.

Lopez is a CIA agent who might not be all that he appears; Cyrus is another agent. Valletta is the kids' mom, while Boecher plays a Russian underworld operative. The film is lensing in Albuquerque, N.M.

Lopez, repped by CAA, most recently had a voice role in "Beverly Hills Chihuahua." Cyrus, repped by UTA and Morey Management Group, next stars in "Hannah Montana: The Movie."

Valletta, who appeared in "Transporter 2," is repped by ICM and Untitled. Boecher, repped by Innovative and Matt Sherman Management, appeared on AMC's "Mad Men." (partialdiff)
