Mike Myers Hints A Fourth Austin Powers Movie Could Be In Development
| Last updated
Grab the velvet pants and ruffled cravats because a fourth Austin Powers film could be in the works, according to Mike Myers.
While sitting down with Sirius XM's Jess Cagle, the comedy legend didn't explicitly rule out that the film franchise is dead.
He said: “I can neither confirm nor deny the existence or non-existence of such a project, should it exist or not exist.”
Cagle's Sirius XM co-host Julia Cunningham responded: "It feels like 'yes,' I'm sorry. It feels like you want to say yes."
Jess added: "It feels like a confirmation that it's gonna be announced."
The 58-year-old actor responded: “It was a non-confirmed confirmation confirmation.”
Ahhh stop with these mind games Myers; we need to know!
The former SNL star said he would ‘love’ to do another movie and revealed his 10-year-old son has memorised the entire first film.
While his character Dr Evil has popped up a few times on The Tonight Show and during a 2022 Super Bowl commercial, Myers hasn't confirmed whether his iconic British spy character could return to the big screen.
The last time we saw that happen was for Austin Powers in Goldmember, which hit theatres two decades ago.
In 2018, while on the red carpet, Myers also spoke of the possibility of a fourth film to Access Online.
He said: "You're going to see Dr Evil soon, somewhere in the culture. The [fourth Austin Powers] movie... it's looking good."
He added: "They take a long time to write, they always have."
Not only did The Love Guru actor allude to another movie, but he also said that the film’s original director Jay Roach would be interested in returning to the spy-comedy flick.
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."
Myers first introduced the world to Austin Powers in 1997 when he starred as the shagadelic secret agent alongside Elizabeth Hurley, Robert Wagner, Seth Green and Mindy Sterling.
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery went on to earn US $67.7 million at the box office and spawned two other sequels, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Austin Powers in Goldmember.
We’d be curious to see what Myers' great comedic mind has in store for Austin Powers 4 because given what he’s already told us, another film sounds absolutely groovy baby!
