Chan’s character is asked to baby-sit his neighbor’s children and winds up having to 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. Amber Valletta is the kids’ mom, while Katherine Boecher plays a Russian underworld operative. Brian Levant is directing for indie financier Relativity.

Lopez most recently had a voice role in “Beverly Hills Chihuahua.” Cyrus next stars alongside his daughter, Miley, in “Hannah Montana: The Movie.”

Valletta has appeared in “Hitch,” and “Transporter 2,” while Boecher appeared in episodes of AMC’s “Mad Men” and TNT’s “The Closer.”
