We haven’t seen the snaggle-toothed secret agent since 2002’s “Goldmember,” but Austin Powers is coming back! Mike Myers is expected to write, produce and star in a fourth “Austin Powers” movie, reports Hitflix.
Though the deal is reportedly set, the Hollywood Reporter cautions that Myers, 48, could still drop out at this point. So maybe practice your Dr. Evil impersonation, but don’t bust out the shag wig just yet.
“Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” arrived in 1997, with "The Spy Who Shagged Me" following in 1999 and “Austin Powers in Goldmember” in 2002. The trilogy grossed $676,356,278 worldwide.
(C'mon, Mike, if you give us another "Austin Powers," we'll forget "The Love Guru" ever happened. Deal?)
It’s been nine years and they’re just doing a regular old sequel instead of a gritty reboot? http://austinpowers-4.blogspot.com/
I am a 29 years old computer engineer and now I am seeking a nice woman for a stable relationship,so I got a username Alexwing432 on-Meetrich.C óM---it's the most effective site in the world to connect with, date and marry successful, beautiful people.Meanwhile,it's worthy a try.The best part is that it's completely free, unlike all the other paid dating sites.You do not have to be rich or famous!
Go watch "Lars and the Real Girl"....
Groovy Baby! LOL
This is the problem wih Hollywood these days. No creativity. Who the hecks wants to see a 4th Austin Powers? NO ONE. Will some of the MBA idiots at studios give us something new and intelligent instead of Final Destination 5 or Austin Powers 4. Give me a break.
All original, all successful:
Battle: Los Angeles
Crazy, Stupid, Love.
Midnight in Paris
Personally, I'm looking forward to another Austin Powers.
Most people believe Inception was original. It actually isn't. There was a movie called Dreamscape from the early 80's that introduced the concept. Dennis Quaid was in it.
I was a Mike Myers fan until the 3rd Austin Powers and Love Guru. The first and second Shrek movies were also cool...third sucked. Please make a movie that really showcases your talent Mike. "So I Married An Axe Murderer" is one of my favorite movies and it was sort of original and very cool...is money really all you're after by making another AP?...bummer.
Beonce ruined the last one!
I hope he doesn't go with what he had first planned...to play ALL the characters. The other cast members (from what I read) were getting up in arms over his plan because they would be bumped from the franchise.
Mike, let it go. It wasn't funny the first time; it wasn't funny the other times.
This franchise stopped being funny by the end of the first movie. Dead horse. Myers suffers from the same problem as Eddie Murphy and Jerry Lewis and Jim Carey; their goofy character-based comedy worked when they were younger, but as old guys, it just doesn't play very well; you can sense desperation in their later movies, like an aging beauty queen going for her third facelift. Kinda sad...
An Austin Powers movie would not be worth watching without the genius character played by Mike. It's hard to believe that anyone could do Austin as well. Feeble attempt, maybe. But there is nothing like the real deal, baby!
Get in my belly!
Yeah, "Austin Powers 4- The Geritol Sanction". Actually I hope it's good. I like Mike. I would rather have another Shrek though.
The budget will cost 1 million dollars!
1974? My gran grudated from nursing school that year,she said those were some fun times, she wouldn't speculate she just had a smile on her cute face when she said it.I do know that my grand attended Woodstock in '69.
every one of these movies is the same.
Please say no. The first two were fun. The third seemed desparate. A fourth would be sad.
I hope it sucks. That way it will show up on Netflix instant view really quick.
I hope Austin goes back to 1974.
Bad idea, but at least somebody's getting paid to do it. Good Luck at the box office tho. The 2nd and 3rd were turds and this one will be too. It'll go to DVD quick.
Is Hollywood capable of making something big that isn't a sequel, adaptation, remake, or a reboot of a series?
Good question! I phoned up Hollywood to ask and the answer is "No!".
Mike, film it in Vancouver and let me direct it...
We pay good money for crap and Hollywood keeps it coming.
Please, no, make it stop
Yes, and in other news, Hollywood can't think of anything better to do with its sorry self.
Buncha one-trick ponies who wouldn't know an original thought if it jumped up and bit them on the behind. And all you idiots follow this crap like rats following the pied piper. Pathetic.
First of all, The Love Guru was funny, I laughed and so did everyone in the room.
Yes please make another Austin Powers, just make it good.
Will the flavor-of-the-month they get to co-star be Justin Beiber?
I hope it isn't mid-life crisis sequel or a "we've all matured and become parents" type of films that so many other sequels have turned into(Little Fockers is just one example). If it doesn't fall into that trap, Austin stays pretty much the same and Mike Meyer's is involved it might have a chance.
My nephew's stepson is a named Austin Powers. He was about 6 months old when the first movie came out. His mother was worried about it, but his dad said "it's just a movie. A few months from now everyone will have forgotten all about it".
Did you buy him a swedish "you-know-what" enlarger?
Because that is his bag baby, yeaaaaaaaaa.
That is too funny! LOL.
How about a smoke and a pancake?
Hollywood is pathetic nowadays.... every damn movie that comes out is a sequel, prequel, adaptation, remake... the same crap rehashed, with a new bow on top.
You're just getting older and wiser. When you were young you thought everything was original and new, but now, with experience, you see that everything derives from something else in some way. It's life.
I'd rather have a Waynes World 3
Hey! I thought the Love Guru was hilarious!
FINALLY! It's been too long without Dr. Evil, Mini Me, Fat B, Scott, and oh yeah Austin! =)
Dude, get a life. Expand your horizons, read a book, go play outside. I know you might not understand what I'm saying with your third grade mentality. Get help =)
Does Hollywood have any new ideas or are we stuck with sequels from now on?
Very true what you said. With the economy in the tank, it will take a lot for people to go and spend money to see a movie. So, Hollywood is trying to make movies that guarantee a return in investment. I do love popcorn movies. I don't want to be "emotionally challenged" when I want an escape. Love the new Planet of the Apes. But, AP seems like a bad choice for another movie. What is next? Return of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
I'm sure I'll end up seeing it at some point. Not in theaters, but at some point.
No No No - We do not need another dumb part to this already dumb series, If Mike Meyers has nothing to do, then he can cut my lawn! Please stay away from making another fiasco!
A sequel is being made for the FANS of this series, not you. Surprised that Hollywood doesn't revolve around you?
Wow isn't it ironic that Myers wants to go back to his Austin Powers movies now that he no longer has Shrek to fall back on? Maybe they'll do a new movie in 3D.
i thought the same thing, coupled with the failure of Love Guru, maybe he's afraid to be original? interestingly enough, the last three Shrek films each made more than the AP trilogy combined... maybe he learned something about marketing remakes
Actually, no, that's not an example of irony.
Yeah, that's not even close enought to be considered "internet-level ironic." It's just cause and effect at best.
CAN'T WAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITT!! oh behaveeeeeeeeee~
Not sure how much gas this franchise has in the tank, or how they're going to play off Austin and Dr. Evil being brothers and on the same team (against Scott Evil?), but maybe they can bring in Myers old pal Dana Carvey to play a villain, or give Mustafa (Will Ferrell) a bigger role as a main villain (although him getting badly injured every time is a funny gag). Come back for a reason, but not to rehash the same jokes over and over again.
I agree. Although I do think Mike Myers ship has sailed .....It seems a bit desperate to do another AP. The last movie he did tanked big time. It was about some hippy guru. Can't even remember the name of it. Since then its been only Shrek. I loved the first AP and quoted it all the time. I hope he doesn't embarass himself. Dana Carvey's last movie was an embarassment, where he played a turtle.....just awful.
ill be real quiet and not mooo so they wont find me. moooooooo. oooooh oh.
Beyonce was pretty bad in that role, but damn did she make me h*rny baby.
Who cares if she can act? As long as she keeps bouncing.
Even though you have mad cow they will still kill you bc u r sick. So hate to say this but u r pretty much screwed :( . hiding in hay won't help..lol
yup – Beyonce totally sucked in the third install......stay in the sixties with the plot line
yes the 3rd AP did suck ball cider. Beyonce playing a fiesty, independant black woman? How innovative of her to play against type..and dont even get me started on the plot. They should do it like the first or second movie..
No one knew that was her "type" back then. She was just on her way. The movie premiered almost a decade ago...so yea, it was a stretch – back then!
I sure hope its better than the third one which sucked.
Funny, I thought the first 3 in the series sucked.
really? I thought te third was the best
No, the first one's the best, the next two sucked!
They're all great. You suck.
Actually, I suck, the 3 movies are ho-hum, and you all are awesome.
dont eat me. i taste very bad. i am a nice cow. moooooooo.
You are what is for dinner.
MAD COW HUH?
I am officially out of the closet and open for business!
Is Myers finally going to come out of the closet?
That would be in the next sequel "The spy who shagged by rear end."
Firsty firsty firsteeeeee
They should put the hamster from TOP GEAR to play his part as austin,if mike doesn't feel like doing it,he's a pretty good match.GOD BLESS AMERICA BABY.
Congratulations on being first... you deserve a cookie.
Yes! And I selected "Austin Powers 4 Dr. Means NO!" out of the new tilte survey.
Happy Cow already did..
