The 4th movie in the Austin Powers franchise might be way closer than we actually thought.
The star of the franchise, Mike Myers, has now opened promotion for the movie, in Bohemian Rhapsody. While he has reprised his role of Dr. Evil, the villain of this franchise, for SNL skits, nothing much has surfaced from this franchise for 15 years. Myers is now planning for another movie with this British spy parody.
“I’ve had three kids under the age of seven,” Myers had said.
“They take a long time to write, they always have. Jay’s been super crazy. He is doing a fantastic movie right now that he’s working on right now. It’s looking good, so we’ll see.”
While this film might not come together until he and Jay Roach collaborate on it creatively, the characters might come up elsewhere.
“You’re gonna see Dr Evil soon somewhere in the culture,” Myers had said.
The very first movie, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, had been released in the year, 1997 and had been followed by Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me by 1999. Austin Powers in Goldmember had released in the year, 2002. The movies had earned $53 million, $206 million, and $213 million.
Wever since the Austin Powers franchise was dormant, Myers had some misses and hits with movies like Shrek and also The Love Guru. There As of now, there is no expected release date and an official announcement about the 4th movie in the Austin Powers franchise.
