Mike Myers teases new Austin Powers movie with an interesting hook

LOS ANGELES (Heartland Newsfeed) — The Austin Powers franchise has been in hiatus since 2002’s Austin Powers in Goldmember, but a fourth installment in the series may be on its way. According to star Mike Myers, who played the simultaneous roles of Austin Powers and Dr. Evil in the spy series, said in recent interviews that the likeliness of a fourth film is “looking good,” and it could have a unique hook.

Myers told Entertainment Tonight that he is interested in making an Austin Powers movie told from the perspective of Dr. Evil instead of Austin Powers. “I would love to do a movie from Dr. Evil’s perspective. So it would be Dr. Evil 1, Austin Powers 4, is how I would roll,” he said. “Start the campaign, please. Thank you.”

In a separate interview with E! News, Myers said it’s “looking good” that a fourth Austin Powers movie will happen. But you should be patient.

“You know, it takes a long time to write the script, you want it to be fantastic,” Myers said.

Jay Roach, who directed all three Austin Powers movies — 1997’s Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery, 1999’s Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, and 2002’s Austin Powers in Goldmember — is reportedly interested as well. Myers said he’s met with Roach about a fourth film, adding again that it’s “looking good,” but “we’ll see.”

“I’d love to do it, it’s so much fun doing it,” he said.

Actor Verne Troyer, who played Mini-Me in the Austin Powers movies, passed away earlier this year. Myers appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night TV show and emotionally praised and remembered the actor who died at the age of of 49.
