Supermensch
It's probably safe to say that it's no mere coincidence that the subtitle of "Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon" recalls "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy." Both men—one real, one fictional—are products of the '70s, a decade when drugs and women were easy and outrageous behavior was routine. When rising agent and manager Shep Gordon wore a t-shirt declaring "No Head No Backstage Pass," it was a sexual invitation certainly, but it also served as a bit of territory-marking. Here was a man who could get what he wanted because of the access he had, and Shep certainly didn't waste a second. But there is so much more to 'Supermensch' than simply sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, which is what makes Mike Myers' directorial debut so involving, satisfying and even moving.

Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon
There are some people who were just made for fame, and legendary promoter/manager Shep Gordon is one of them. His story of moving to Los Angeles and running into Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison at the same time is the stuff of mythology, and his career managing some of the biggest names ever is epic. Now, Mike Myers (yes, Austin Powers himself) is telling the story in the entertaining documentary "Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon," and the first trailer is here to give you a good idea of what to expect.

Well, seeing as unnecessary sequels to “Twins,” “Ghostbusters,” and "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" continue to develop, why not add another one to the mix? While the last we heard from Mike Myers was that he was trying to get a fourth “Austin Powers” movie off the ground, it seems he’s turned his attention to his other comedic franchise, “Wayne’s World.”

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.
