“It’s freedom, baby, yeah!” Mike Meyers has officially signed on for Austin Powers 4! Get ready to laugh your butt off!
I am so excited! I mean, sure it has been ten years and I am wondering if it will still have that same comedic magic, but sometimes a little time away makes things better.
There have been rumors for a while now, and I guess Mike just became tired of playing Shrek. The storyline for the film has not yet been released, and they still don’t have a director. However, Jay Roach, who directed the previous three films –”International Man of Mystery”, “The Spy Who Shagged Me”, and “Goldmember” is a top pick.
I am also dying to know who they pick for the female lead this time around. I like Scar Jo or Anne Hathaway, they would make killer leading ladies!
Just to take you back a bit, here are some of my favorite quotes from the previous films:
“I’ve been frozen for 30 years. I’ve got to see if my bits and pieces are still working.”
“No doubt, love, but as long as people are still having promiscuous sex with many anonymous partners without protection while at the same time experimenting with mind-expanding drugs in a consequence-free environment, I’ll be sound as a pound!”
“You’re not quite evil enough. You’re semi-evil. You’re quasi-evil. You’re the margarine of evil. You’re the Diet Coke of evil. Just one calorie, not evil enough.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my submarine lair. It’s long, hard and full of seamen!”
There are plenty more quotes, I think I will have to watch all three before this film comes out!
So what kind of plot line would you like to see in Austin powers 4? Who are you hoping is cast in this movie?
Mike Meyers has also signed on to be a writer for the movie, which is set to hit theaters in 2013.
