A basic rumor mill, that's for sure. It seems there will be a live action movie, though there are a few conflicting reports some say that either Sandra Bullock or Jennifer Lopez would play Carmen!
And Sandra or Jennifer as Carmen? Well...I will give them this much- they both could pull off a sort of Carmenesque look, but can either play a character that has shades of gray? (I'm hoping the script will have her like the cartoon incarnation rather than your standard villainess, which Carmen isn't).
But hey, maybe I'm being too tough on them, I don't know. Opinions on this are welcome.
Now, there is word that a script based on the animated series is being worked on, but I am not sure if this is true.
If you must know- yes, I am hoping that rumor is true though!
This is where I found that the movie may be based on the cartoon:
(But you have to scroll waaaaaaaaaaay down to read this so, I'll save ya the trouble):
Executive producers BENJAMIN MELNIKER and MICHAEL E. USLAN served as executive producers on Batman, Batman Returns and Batman Forever and as producers on the animated feature Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Melniker and Uslan executive produced, with DIC Entertainment, the Fox Network cartoon show Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?, which was nominated for four Emmy Awards, including Best Animated Series....
Currently, Melniker and Uslan are preparing an upcoming live-action feature film based on Carmen Sandiego with DIC Enterprises...
Also, there are reports that Disney and Dic are working together on this project. You can check out two articles talking about this .
I happened to save one article about Sandra perhaps playing Carmen:
The other articles I had are no longer online, sorry.
I can only offer this other link to the Internet Movie Database's Carmen movie page. There isn't much there though.
