After The Love Guru dropped a giant stink bomb at the box office there was a new urgency for Mike Myers to either fade off into obscurity or do something drastic to salvage his tarnished comedic career.
The only palatable solution available to Mike is the one he’s chosen: resurrect the almighty Austin Powers.
Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting Myers and Mike McCullers (Baby Mama, Austin Powers 2 and 3) are penning a script for a fourth Powers flick with a twist. Whereas the first three films were shot from the perspective of Austin, the fourth will do an about face and cater to the whims of Dr Evil and the relationship with his son Scott.
“It’s very personal with a father and son theme loosely based on his own life,” claims an insider. It’s going to need to be a heck of a lot than that for Myers to climb out of the trash heap that is The Love Guru.
New Line is apparently excited with the premise but has yet to cut a deal.
