Mike Myers Signs On For Austin Powers 4

Mike Myers Signs On For Austin Powers 4, HitFix reports that Mike Myers has just closed its agreement to take over the role of a fourth Austin Powers’s film. The final installment of the franchise – Goldmember – was nearly a decade ago.
The plot details have not yet been revealed and it is unclear whether the director Jay Roach (who directed the first three comedies) will return to Austin Powers 4.
It has been three years since Mike Myers stepped in front of the camera in a leading role and that was in the 2008 box-office misfire The Love Guru. It looks like Myers is ready to get back on the horse (even if it is much more proven) as Hitfix reports that he has now officially signed to return to his more famous screen persona, the shagadelic British spy Austin Powers.
It has been almost a decade since Austin Powers: Goldmember, which was the most successful of the national series and just a hair short walk from the chest The Spy Who Shagged Me franchise leader in box office gross. The question now is whether or not the public is always welcome of Man International Mystery back with open arms, or if they prefer Myers, where he spent most of his time when working recently – behind a micro lending his voice to a character beloved that made both him and many other loads of money.
While no one has confirmed his return yet one can only speculate that this film will be accelerated for a late 2012 or summer 2013 release (although if I had to put money on it I would with the summer of 2013, as the final months of 2012 are packed with potential box-office giants -. not to mention that the previous films in the series have all been communicated)
As for the continuous casting, with Myers on board, he cares about more than 50% of the vote principal. As far as educated guesses, Seth Green has almost a lock to guarantee a return. Not only is the character who helps keep the soil Dr. Evil, his “cliffhanger” an end in the last film left the door open for many different directions to take.
Of course, a woman co-star will also be necessary and this is where things get interesting. That would be a good partner for Austin this time? The first name that popped into my head when I saw the news was Scarlett Johansson. I think his personality would fit and look perfect as a film, not to mention his recent work that proves that Black Widow was more than enough capacity for intelligence in it. An equally good (and very possible given his star continue to rise at the end) is Olivia Wilde. Wilde is also great news for the game, and think about it, why not Johansson as Scott Evil 2 and Wilde as a partner in Austin? That would be groovy baby, yeah.
While we will not know for sure who will be featured along with Myers for a while yet, what the plot is or will be at the helm of the film, at least we know that there will be another Austin Powers movie and that’s good news in my books. Now let the speculation of the title of the film can begin! Live and Let Shag? License to Shag? Thunderball?
