Yeah Baby Yeah! Mike Myers To Return To AUSTIN POWERS!

Nordling here.

Mike Myers hasn't had very much success outside the SHREK films in recent years, although I loved his turn as Captain British Exposition (yes, I know, that's not his name) in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS.  But THE LOVE GURU did terribly and he hasn't been in many films since then.  So it comes as not much of a surprise that Myers has decided to return to the role that gave him worldwide stardom - no, not Wayne, but Austin Powers, according to a HitFix exclusive (Drew's on a roll lately!).

No word on a story, or who would be directing - Jay Roach did good work in the other films, so I'd love it if he returned as well - but I can imagine Austin Powers spoofing the Bourne films and the Daniel Craig iteration of James Bond.  "You guys are so serious, baby!  And none of you shag with any regularity!"  And Dr. Evil would return as well, I'm assuming; with all the faceless enemies of the new spy films, I'd be curious to see how Myers would spoof that with Dr.  Evil.  The AUSTIN POWERS movies still hold up - they're ridiculous and have the mentality of a 12-year-old watching a porno for the first time, but they're still so damn funny and enjoyable.  I'm glad to have Austin Powers and Dr. Evil back.  Pinky to mouth time!

Nordling, out.

    and interesting things were left off at the end of the last one. Dr. Evil on Powers side? The can squeeze some great brotherly relationship shit out of that. Maybe catching up on having no childhood together by trying to bang the same girls and who does daddy (Nigel) love more. Scotty Evil, now bald, would be the bad guy. As he was fairly intuitive logical(knew that you just shot your enemy and didn't put them in death traps, or shot them while they were on the crapper). It would be funny if Number 2 worked for him (huge generation gap) and Scotty was fucking Frau whatserface. Bring back Vanessa as an army of Fembot duplicates. Oh, Fat Bastard must be fat again! and please please please please no Anne Hathaway as the Austin girl. I hope there is not gimicky Austin girl at all, actually. Wow, weird to think we will see another Batman film and the Hobbit before this would be in theaters.

    Never Say Never Again, Baby

    by Nem_Wan

    By the time this gets made the gap between 3 and 4 will be almost as long as Sean Connery's second retirement from Bond. There could be parody to mine not only from that film but the last decade's rash of who-asked-for-this sequels to long-over franchises featuring aging stars. Time travel to or from the 80s perhaps?

  • Aug. 12, 2011, 8:36 p.m. CST

    I'd much rather see Ace Ventura

    by Geektard_Smasher

    In another film. I still laugh out loud at both of them (when seen uncut) every few minutes, while Austin hit my actually out loud funny bone every 10 minutes or so. Bits like his nads being hidden by foreground stuff as he moved around, the Hard Knock Life prison sequence, Austin getting bathroom encouragement from Tom Arnold (Don't blow out your o-ring!) etc. But there were a lot of groan moments. Like when they would go to a Laugh In dance number for a few second between scenes, and Austin would get a close up and say OH BEHAVE! or whatever. Those are bad.

    by theBigE

    The first film is a comedy classic. Search your feelings, you know it to be true. The second film was dreadful. It had a handful of clever ideas, but it was mainly just a retread, with the introduction of Mini-me the only redeeming quality. Even the lovely Heather Graham couldn't make me like the 2nd film. Is it wrong to say I did enjoy the 3rd one? The star cameos? The Hard Knock rap? Austin and Mini-Me behind the doctor's curtain? Austin unplugging the water fountain? <p> #4 should be 30 years earlier than the release year - in 1982.

    by Darth_Tarantino

    You want to see an Austin Powers movie that features Scott Evil fucking Frau? His own mother? I think we all learned something about you today.... Personally I don't see the point in going back to this franchise. The first 2 films are great for what they are; good, dumb fun. I still get a chuckle out of them. The third film was stripped of any redeeming qualities and even now I can't stomach it. Unless someone came along with a killer script (in comedic terms) this is doomed to be mundane at best. While a return trip to Wayne's World is appealing, that's only because I'm 28 years old and can still remember how much I enjoyed those flicks as a kid. It would be nostalgic to see another film but really the world has moved on. It's one of the reason I was a bit unsure about Beavis & Butt-head returning or a third Bill & Ted movie coming to the screens. Nostalgia is the only good reason to see these films and nostalgia, more often than not, proves to be nowhere near enough to insure quality (see Indiana Jones IV). Time to move on or retire, Mike Myers.

  • There have been all of these super hero movies lately where at the end S.H.I.E.L.D. tries to do some recruiting. Well I think a GREAT idea would be to do some sort of take on that or just a nod to that with this Austin Powers film having a cameo by Pee Wee Herman. Or having Powers in Pee Wee's film. Remember how pumped everyone got in Predator 2 when the Xenomorph skull was in the predator's collection, or how people got so excited when Freddy grabbed Jason's mask and drug it under the earth in Friday the 13th part 1046529? Well it could just be a brief cameo by Pee Wee that eludes to an eventual teaming up of the two in a future movie. Conversely Powers could show up in Pee Wee's new movie also, to recruit him as an agent, S.H.I.E.L.D. style. Anyways Hollywood, there is my golden nugget worth MILLIONS! Talk amongst yourselves...

    We have a great first draft

    by JettL93

    We have been musing about this for several years (meyes actualy loved a draft i wrote back in 2006, but we were unable to get the film moving) But our current story idea for 4ustin Powers will poke fun at the trend of hollywood reboots. In the film ausin will travel back to the 60's on a mission, but upon his return he finds that his world has changed, austin powers is now a handsome muscle bound dark and troubled character and the villans are no longer campy but terrorists who gruesomely kill. Meyers wants justin timberlake to play the "reboot" austin powers and theres a part for beyonce if she can work it into her sechedule and yes mini me will return in a large role Dr evil does appear but in a diminished capacity, we all feel the evil character had his arc and it's time to move onto new and exciting villans. Meyers is also hesitant to reprise the fat basterd character feeling he's a one note villan Tentative titles we are floating around include For your thighs only On her majasty's sexy service License to Mojo Goldenpie That last one is a favourite in the writer retreats but a contact at WB has already said they won't Ok that title "not in a million years" as one executive put it

    by jrb

    They still played them as teenagers rather than have them be aged twenty years with kids of their own. The characters worked in the early 90's because they were supposed to be pre-grunge metal heads who went to high school in the late 80's. That works. Today however, the characters aren't as believable. The type of headbangers they portrayed just don't fit in 2011, at least not as teenagers. I can believe those characters in their late thirties or early forties not having changed for twenty years and still dressing and talking like they did when they were nineteen year old metal heads. That could work.

    Austin Powers: Quantum of Love Guru

    by Andrew Coleman

    Will these even be relevant? I think it would be funny if Austin Powers 4 was filmed in a really gritty style... But yet the material be overly goofy. Like make fun of quick cut fight scenes and overly realistic villians. Sure have Dr. Evil's son be the villain maybe at the beginning but then have it just be a guy in a suit. Make fun of how spy movies now basically can't have fun because they have to be "real" and "gritty".

  • Dr. Evil changed sides. His sons all pissed off, and it's implied that scotty will be the new evil, whatever. I wonder Can they.. Will they.. Do they.. Dare they... Make the villain absolutely cold and calculated, without a single inch of funny about him/her. Kinda bizzaro like. So evil that even with Austin cant funny it out with this villain when they share screen time. Shit just falls cold like cracking a cock and pussy joke at the family table during thanksgiving dinner. Not just that but hows about a Villain that does not fail... Plain and simple This villian gets it done. This villian is actually brilliant and they do kill people that are not henchmen that work for them. A Villain that actually makes Austin cry like a little girl and kills those who matter most to him.

    He needs to focus around a story not gags this time.

    by Charlie

    First one is a good film. The second one opened the scope with the 60s. It then re-did every joke from the first film, but actually still had a lot of unique and funny ideas. The third one was terrible. Nothing overly new or clever. It was just bloated in ideas not tied to a story. He really really needs to actually get a decent James Bond type story as the basis. Then work the character around that. Seriously are the rights to the Thunderball screenplay still all messed up? He'd be better retrofitting that into an Austin Powers film. Then a bunch of bad sketch ideas around a bloated version of the other films combined.

    the OSS117 films show the flaw with Austin Powers

    by Charlie

    If you haven't seen the recent 0SS117 films you must. OSS117: Cairo Nest of Spies OSS117: Lost in Rio They're recent french comedies based on the original french, literary/film version of James Bond. Agent oss117, Hubert Bonisseur de La Bath. They're period set to the 50s/60s and basically parodies of things like James Bond. They get so much right, from the sets, costumes, fight choreography, cinematography and so forth. They are damn funny as well. They really show how the Austin Powers approach is straight up sketch comedy rather than a proper comedy film. If you like the Connery Era bond films and want to see a proper send up, then see this. Damn funny stuff.

    by eveelcapitalist

    Didn't Dr. Evil go good at the end of the last one? They needed to follow through on that. But no, honestly, just no. The Austin Powers movies ran their course. It was cute and clever and really funny (the first one is still great) but honestly it's just played out. Mike Meyers needs to move on to something original. On the other hand, I would see Wayne's World 3 in a second. Oh fuck yes. I still love the shit out of the original. Love it! Throw in a bunch of cameos by bands like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Whitesnake, Metallica, Anthrax...I'd be in heaven.

    Austin Powers: Th Queens Man

    by ruven76

    powers stayed in the 70's and married foxy foxy got him dressing better while before he was more of a avengers/dandy bond... now he is more of a connery/craig bonds type of secret agent while he is trying to be tough and more buff and ass kicking... he is also more modernly styled thanks to the help of foxxy so he has a little bit of that timothy dalton/pierce brosnan type look to him now with the swept back hair and scott evil tries to rule the world of 1983 by first trying to get the US and Russia into a war and he does this all while wearing a michael jackson beat it jacket powers and foxy are a team and his father stays at home watching their baby half black/white boy who he secretly ha been training s while the parents are away they are in afghanistan where they are instrumental at stopping a group of russian secret agents intercepting weapon shipments to the afghans and making sure the russian scientist heima rusovitch doesnt sell their nuclear weapon to bin laden who plans to use it on americans after the war their contact was a young osama bin laden who tries to kill foxxy brown and turns out to be a villain who had been worked with the russians because he was working with scott evil who was working with the russians his plan was excellent but he didnt count on austin powers and foxxy being there to help drive the russians out he is sent in to help covertly in a joint US/UK mission with foxxy representing the US some parts of filmed in russie and some in afghanistan scott evil is obsessed with 80's dance music specially michael jackson at the end of the movie after he saves afghanistan from being taken over by the russians, averts ww3 and saves his family... austin retires and spends the next few years sitting on his ass getting out of shape and nasty like he used to be with the long hair and flabby face and no longer bothers to wear his new contacts so he wears his old glasses instead he is there sitting by his pool with a pina colada in his hand and his fat belly hanging from his speedoes watching his wife foxxy and his boy played by jaden smith frolicking in the pool THE END fade back in real quick cuz it was a fake ending back at the pool drinking his pina colada his cell phone rings its dr evil with an important message his old contacts have found someone that might interest him he doesnt care... he's retired but then he tells him who he has but the audience cant hear the screen then cuts to powers face mulling it over for a second and looking straight ahead and saying he is in to be continued? the credits start to roll but then fake out again another ending scene this time the real ending first scene is old balding fat glasses wearing out of style powers is jumping out of a plane about to skydive down to a compound in pakistan sneak in undetected find osama bin landen and try to arrest him but bin laden isnt having it and takes a shot at powers so powers has to take him out no thats too hard core for an austin powers movie how bout just in the course of the movie when bin laden turns out to be evil he ends up trying to do something so outrageous that it causes his own death and the death of whatever movement he was trying to start

    wrath of fett:

    by UltraTron

    It's always fun listening to people without any idea what's happening around them. It's like you don't speak Spanish and everyone is talking in Spanish and you understand anything but hola. To give you some idea- the powers character was funny because it spoofed several micheal kane spy flicks that came out after bond became popular in the 60s. Kane had the same glasses in some of these films and wasn't exactly Sean Connery but he got the babes. This is why Kane played austin's dad in the 3rd film. Now grow and learn my friend. Research and extrapolate the old world that once was. See through the eyes of history. Then return to the films and see if understanding reveals more humor you didn't know was there. As you age and gain experience you will find that new entertainments appeal to you. Or no. You might just be another lost, un-washed soul who will never blossom into a well rounded individual. Not defending this series when I say this. Just in general.

  • So I guess this means they're getting closer to getting it right. I came late to this series, saw the third one first and then went backwards. Ended up really enjoying them, even though I thought I hated them. Goldmember has been on cable lately and it does hold up surprisingly well. Hopefully Michael Caine can show up in the new one as well. Dude is almost 80, we need to get him in as many films as we can with a quickness.

  • I like some of Myers juvenile comedy work, so I have nothing against him personally. But I thought his appearance in "Inglourious Basterds" brought the film to a jarring halt while he was on screen. It was like watching Mike Myers do a comedic take on a military intel man who was doing a serious take on a comedic Mike Myers role. Just really embarassing, especially when you put him on screen against Michael Fassbender.

    I am SO Excited about the Austin Powers Movie!

    by Morgan Polen

    I saw the first one, I kinda laughed, but mostly thought it was crude humor and nothing worth watching. I was in Singapore when the Second AP came out, my friends had seen it the week before and wanted to see it again. I rolled my eyes and went, just because they were so keen on the movie, and there was not much else to do on a Friday night. You See the AP movies and the juvenile humor may not get to you at first, because it is so much like a 10 to 12 (pre-teen) kind of humor. But if you relax, and kind of remember the glee you had telling your first toilet joke to your friends laughing at such non-sense. Once you get into that mind set, or smoke a doob suddenly this humor is the best thing you have ever seen. It is crude, silly, a little dirty. It is like MM never grew out of the pre-teen dirty joke mode. I loved AP 2, went back and saw AP 1 and really laughed even though I had seen it before, but my mode was different. AP 3 was great and I have since gone back and laughed equally as hard. I liked the Love Guru, but saw some of the same jokes, in fact a lot of the Wayne's World Jokes are in the AP movies. The thing about the AP movies is they don't take themselves seriously, you should not either. These are not movies that work hard to make you laugh, they assume your in a silly mode or could just retire your higher functioning brain for 2 hours so you can tickle your inner 12 year old and have a stress busting good time, and not feel all intellectual. I say to those that think it is not funny, to take the doob test and watch an AP movie. If you don't crack up, you are too old mentally and such are doomed to finding your humor in the likes of the New Yorker or watching Dane Cook movies.

    Victim of its own success

    by bill

    The problem for Myers (who I rate as a genuine comedic acting talent; just really bad at choosing roles [I'm looking at You Cat in the Hat]) is that any Austin Powers follow up would only be a self parody. The first films were So good they changed the genre they originally parodied. By holding a mirror up to the campiness of the old style Bond/Spy films, we got Bourne and the grumpy-but-gritty new Bond; so unless he takes the piss out of rapid-fire kali martial arts fights, and car chases through increasingly tighter and tighter French side streets, I'm afraid two of the most original movie characters are going to become sad deflated and desperate.

    by Orbots Commander

    The Austin Powers movies were all about spoofing the tired run of Bond movies (starring Pierce Brosnan) at the time. With Bourne and Daniel Craig's Bond being the 'new' cliche or standard, whatever your view on that is, will the new Powers poke them at that? If they just rehash the older Austin Powers movies, I think any new entry will appear and drift away fairly quickly. A good approach will be to spoof a 'darker and grittier Austin Powers' with the quick cut, shaky cam lampooning of the Paul Greengrass directing style.
