For those of you excited by the prospects of “Austin Powers” hitting the big screen again, just hold your horses as reports may be somewhat false.
HitFix originally reported that Mike Myers had signed on to play the shag-a-delic international spy for a fourth time and that it was a done deal. However, entertainment site Deadline New York is reporting that no deal has been signed as of yet.
According to the latest reports, the deal isn’t finalized and Myers has only expressed interest in a proposal presented around 6 months ago from New Line. Apparently, the project was postponed after Myers’ 2008 movie “The Love Guru” didn’t do well at the box office, and he took a brief break from Hollywood.
But now New Line is seeking to revitalize the project recently and sent out a new offer about 6 months ago. Myers’ reps say that he’s definitely interested though.
Guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
