According to various reports, Mike Myers has been brainstorming about doing a fourth instalment of Austin Powers.
The first movie is coming up on its 20th anniversary.
“I would love to do another, but you just have to see. I was devastated by my father’s death. But to have that turn into something that makes people happy is unbelievably satisfying. It’s that kind of stuff you never get used to or get tired of,” Myers recently said.
The Austin Powers trilogy, which has received more than 20 awards out of its 40-some nominations, may have received mixed reviews, but it didn’t disappoint with fans. Myers told The Hollywood Reporter: “I knew we had something when I was driving on Halloween in Los Angeles and I couldn’t get past Santa Monica Boulevard because of a parade, so I sat on the hood of the car and I saw like 15 Austin Powers go by and one of the Austin Powers spotted me and came over. I had a picture with all these Austin Powers, which was unbelievably cool.”
It got both a Grammy nod (for Madonna’s song “Beautiful Stranger” and an Academy Award nomination (for The Spy Who Shagged Me).
