Mike Myers returns for “Austin Powers 4”

Austin Powers 4 Mike Myers

Believe it or not, Goldmember was released nearly a decade ago. But HitFix is reporting that Mike Myers has closed a deal that will see the 48-year-old actor star in Austin Powers 4. There is no word yet on who will direct or what the storyline will be, but it’s officially in the works.

It will be Myers’ first trip back to the starring live-action film since the 2008 comedy The Love Guru; he had a bit part in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds. The former Saturday Night Live comedian has been out of the limelight for so long that he’ll try to come back and be funny again.

Are you excited at the thought of a new Austin Powers sequel? Well, I’m not. I think it will be another crappy action-comedy flick that has no point other than making money.
