Home Movies Mike Myers in a New Austin Powers? Say It Isn’t So

Reports in the last few days that Mike Myers may revive Austin Powers and Dr. Evil one more time. Please, Mike, say it isn’t so. Three “Austin Powers” movies were enough. The last one was in 2002. Let’s move on. Everything that could be accomplished in that series has been done. Myers has been adrift for a long time. His “Love Guru” in 2008 was much loathed. He was supposed to do a “Sprockets” movie, but it never materialized. Myers is a clever writer, certainly he can think of something better than another dredging of the “Austin Powers” well. Shagadelic seems like such a loooong time ago. And the thought of Austin and Dr. Evil going into the 70s or worse, the 80s, is not enticing at all. “Disco” Austin? Mullet “Austin”? Austin meets “Wayne’s World”? Yeesh.
