Reports of another Austin Powers movie surfaced as early as 2008, but it was just confirmed by Hitfix that Austin Powers 4 is a go and will star Mike Myers. Don’t get too excited for more Fat Bastard sex scenes or Dr. Evil quotables, they are not expecting the film’s release until 2013.
There haven’t been any Austin Powers movie since 2002’s slightly disappointing Goldmember. Jay Roach director of Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999) and then Goldmember in 2002, has stated that Myers’ character will go “Somewhere you haven’t thought of,” for the new movie.
Another big announcement-to-come will be the lead female role, which the public has come to anticipate nearly as much as the movie’s mirrored-parodied (James) Bond Girls. The former movies have of course starred Elizabeth Hurley, Heather Graham and Beyonce.
Who do you think should or will be cast as the new Powers Girl? I opt Scarlett Johansson or Blake Lively.
