Mike Myers admitted that he would love to be apart of another Austin Powers movie and with that said, it looks like the rest of the world is in favor of it, too.
The first two hit Austin Powers comedies were released in 1997 and 2003.
During an interview with The Hollywood reporter, Mike Myers said:
“After my dad died in 1991, I was taking stock of his influence on me as a person and his influence on me with comedy in general. So Austin Powers was a tribute to my father, who [introduced me to] James Bond, Peter Sellers, The Beatles, The Goodies, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore.
I would love to do another, but you just have to see. I was devastated by my father’s death. But to have that turn into something that makes people happy is unbelievably satisfying. It’s that kind of stuff you never get used to or get tired of.”
Last year, director Jay Roach, who directed the first Austin Powers film in 1997 said he had high hopes for a fourth movie even if it wouldn’t be released in the near future.
“I would say it’s in a latent phase right now but someday if we find the right idea that seems to have it earn itself, for sure. Mike gave me the break of a lifetime in letting me direct so I’m always good to go.”
They don’t have to worry about whether or not there will be an audience. When the first Austin Powers movie, ‘Man of Mystery’, hit theaters, audiences turned out in droves. It was so popular that the box office released two sequels: ‘The Spy Who Shagged Me’ and ‘Goldmember’.
