[SPOILERS AHEAD]

The film will, reportedly, begin when the identities and names of all the undercover agents will be revealed by a criminal mastermind, and a disaster will strike.

The secret service will look to their only trusted agent – Johnny English – who is currently teaching at a minor prep school. He will come back to fight the mysterious hacker and will use all the ‘little’ skills he has; “It will take all of his skills- what few he has- as the man with yesterday’s analog methods faces off against tomorrow’s digital technology.”
