I know it's been long, but back in May of 2007 Mike Myers confirmed that he was interested in going forward with another Austin Powers sequel. Sounds good, but we haven't heard a thing since. More than a year later, it looks like Myers has finally begun putting a script together.
Myers Writing Austin Powers 4
The good people at DeadlineHollywoodDaily have been tipped off that Mike Myers has started writing Austin Powers 4.
"It's very personal with a father and son theme loosely based on his own life," an insider tells me. As Myers has previously said, this fourth installment of the super spy spoof movie series will focus on Austin's arch-villain Dr. Evil, who was based on Blofeld of the Bond films. But what hasn't been known is that the AP4 plot is really about Dr. Evil and his son (introduced already as Scott Evil, played by Seth Green). Myers is penning his idea with Baby Mama's Mike McCullers, who collaborated with Myers on Austin Powers 2: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Austin Powers 3: Goldmember.
Though Myers last film, The Love Guru, was an utter disaster, it is told that New Line is still geeked on the idea of another Powers installment.
