Mike Myers Hints That 'Austin Powers 4' Is On Its Way
Yeah baby, Mike Myers has come out and said Austin Powers 4 is 'looking good' - basically we might not be waiting long to get a new dose of the shagadelic man of mystery.
While on the red carpet Myers told Access Online a new Austin Powers adventure is in the works and fans will see one of his famous characters make a comeback.
He said: "You're going to see Dr Evil soon, somewhere in the culture. The [fourth Austin Powers] movie... it's looking good," he said, later adding: "They take a long time to write, they always have."
The last time Powers was on screen was back in 2002 when the star took to the screen to portray the spy for a third time in Austin Powers in Goldmember.
Not only did Myers confirm we'd be getting a new film, but he also pretty much confirmed the film would have the same director as the first three, Jay Roach.

He said: "They take a long time to right, Jay's been crazy - he's doing a fantastic movie right now he's working on."
16 years is a helluva long time to wait for a new installment to the series, but Myers does have a pretty good reason for this.
He told Digital Spy earlier this year: "You know, I've been very... I've had three kids in the last six years and that's sort of where my focus has been."
We've also got to remember not only does Myers take on several roles in the films, but he writes the bloody things too - so we'll forgive him for the lengthy absence.
Myers first introduced us to Powers back in 1997 parodying some of the most famous Bond films in the making - in the films it would always see Powers take on his nemesis from the 60s Dr Evil, also played by Myers, and star alongside 90s British icon Liz Hurly.
