Yeah baby! During an interview with Variety, Mike Myers stated that he has been working on a fourth installment to the Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery franchise. Since it’s been 20 years since the original film hit the theaters, it’s time to refresh audiences of why Austin Powers is and will always be a “sexy beast”.
Myers stated that he and director Jay Roach have been working on the 4th installment over the years, but they’ve yet to pull the trigger on officially kicking the project into full gear.
We have talked about [making a fourth movie] for 15 years. We have also always said we don’t want to do it unless we came up with something that lived up to the concepts in our mind.Until Mike feels like he has a concept that earns a fourth, it won’t happen. But if it did, we have all agreed that we would be delighted to get back into it. — Myers
Although, movie goers have been vocal about Hollywood lacking new ideas, some how the timing feels right for the franchise to make its return to theaters.
