As you might remember, late this summer, probably in an effort to revive a career that is for all intents and purposes dead, it was announced that Mike Myers was going to dust off the ugly dentures to play Austin Powers -- again -- in a fourth movie. Aside from his voicework in the "Shrek" series, Myers has become something of non-presence on the big screen popping up in a cameo in "Inglourious Basterds" after tanking hard with "The Love Guru." The cultural zeitgeist around all things retro seems to have died, but for whatever reason New Line seems to think this franchise still has life and if Myers has his way, "Austin Powers" is going to be bigger than ever.

Hollywood is a strange beast -- projects come and go every day with a chance to bankrupt everyone but make one or two people a lot of money. This leads to the high demand for sequels, further installments that no one asked for in franchises that should have stopped either after the first film, or even before the pen hit the page. Another 'Austin Powers' hits this sweet spot perfectly, as Mike Myers is about to accept what is likely a huge sum to return in a fourth installment in the spy spoof series, according to HitFix.
