After The Love Guru doing not so well in the ‘good’ department it seems Mike Myers needs to get back on form in some way, and that doesn’t involve voicing an ogre. According to Nikki Finke Myers is teaming up with Mike McCullers again to write a fourth Austin Powers movie.
“It’s very personal with a father and son theme loosely based on his own life,” an insider tells me. As Myers has previously said, this fourth installment of the super spy spoof movie series will focus on Austin’s arch-villain Dr. Evil…”
Nikki Finke also points out that Myers had a character in the original Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery script called The Love Guru but decided not to shoot it and then wrote it out of the series.
There is no deal in place yet, but with the Austin Powers franchise earning more after each movie New Line/Warner Bros. will probably give it the green light.
…yeah, baby, yeah?
