In recent years that have been lots of speculations as to whether Austin Powers 4 would actually see the light of the silver screen. The man behind the film, no other than the genius Mike Myers, has encountered a few deadlocks with his most recent film ventures at least in terms of commercial success. Crafts wise, Mike Myers never seem to deliver a failure but his last movie projects did not quite make it at least in terms of blockbuster standards. Such projects include the last two Shrek spinoffs as well as The Love Guru.
Of course the Austin Power movie is entirely different topic. Mike Myers has consistently shown his exemplary command with comedy writing and screwball acting in the series hence there is no merit when it comes to doubting the sheer brilliance of the franchise. Thus far, Mr. Myers has already written, acted in, and produced three commercially successful Austin Power movies. The titles he had previously crafted include Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, and Austin Powers in Goldmember. All these films have satirized the formula film tackling espionage specifically the James Bond fanchise.
It is not yet clear or final who would be joining Mike Myers for his latest comedic opus in Austin Powers 4. Most likely there will be returning thespians from the previous films but as of now it is actually too early to know for sure which among the past Austin Power top-billers will make a comeback. Previous start who have co-billed with Mike Myers include Elizabeth Hurley, Fred Savage, Heather Graham, Michael Caine, Michael York, Mimi Rogers, Mindy Sterling, Rob Lowe, Robert Wagne, Seth Green, Verne Troyer and even pop superstar Beyonce Knowles. Writing credits have been shared by Mike Myers and Michael McCullers whereas the directorial title went to Jay Roach. The producer seat have been claimed by the likes of Demi Moore, Jennifer and Suzanne Todd, and of course Mr. Myers himself. All three Austin Powers films have been released by New Line Cinema.
Austin Powers fans have been anticipating the trailer for the latest spinoff but as of date, such is still a bit impossible considering that the film is on its earlier stage of production. Although this demands coming from the followers of the franchise is enough of a reason for the people behind it to actually pursue the project and to not delay its completion even more. It is only obvious that many people actually anticipate the film with zest and gusto.
In terms of release date, there is yet to be a fix agreement on the matter. The people behind the film have been mum and close-lipped so far although it is logical to assume that the film will most likely be launched on the following year. That is of course if the production pushes through this current year.
Austin Powers 4 will surely give something new to both Austin Powers devotees as well as those who are interested in this enduring franchise. Since it has been years since the last Austin Powers movie, a new installment could even tap a new and younger audience demographic who were most likely still young when the third part of the film trilogy was released.
Hollywood insiders have been buzzing about the cast that would eventually be included in the fourth Austin Powers installment. There are already some favorite thus far and they are the ones who have played their roles in the previous movies with precision and spot-on comedic timing. Some of the most popular names being cited include Heather Graham and Seth Green although as to whether they would agree to again sign up for the project is yet to be known.
Austin Powers 4 should definitely be made since there are a lack of laugh out loud action comedies nowadays. It is a one of kind film franchise that deserves to be revisited over and over again. So far the news in tinsel town is favorable toward those who are truly anticipating for the eventual release of the film. There have been considerable buzz that it is indeed going be made.
We could only hope that Austin Powers 4 could be finished as soon as possible since during these trying times, we all need some good laughs. Until then we let you enjoy the third movie trailer:
