Mike Myers Officially In For ‘Austin Powers 4′ (http://screenrant.com/austin-powers-4-mike-myers-official-rob-127932/)

I'm down for the 4th Installment. Mike Myers has been AWOL for far too long. Other than Skrek, I can't remember anything else he has been in lately.

Inglorious Basterds.

I was just thinking watching the first Austin Powers that if they take on New Bond and Bourne then the movie will probably suck and surely age badly, as opposed to the first three which are kind of period fish-out-of-water pieces.

Honestly, I think both announcements are for deals, and I'm not certain if we'll actually see either this or Wayne's World.

What Myers needs to do is a new character and property to suit his current age and sensibilities rather than rehash.

Well, Myers should have been doing that for the last 10 years while he was making Shrek. I seriously doubt he is going to change now when he is trying to get back into the public eye. He tried and failed with The Guru, so of course he's gonna go back to the well with Austin and Wayne. Easy money. I honestly don't think the majority of people out there want to see new characters, especially when Austin and Wayne's World gives us a bunch of characters with different actors.

I forgot about the Guru.  Yeah, that IS a good excuse.  Though it doesn't even have to be a full movie, he should be rocking Funny Or Die with small characters, and not even the protagonist.  He needs the experiment zone that SNL provided him and several others to hone their material and interact with an audience.

I think Mini-Me is done, I'd rather have them branch into new territory then bring EVERYONE back like Lethal Weapon 4.

BTW, has anyone given any consideration to how awful Mike Myers will look naked this time around?

And who's gonna be his Bond girl?

You know what, they should totally have Halle Berry play opposite Austin Powers in a Jinx (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/die-another-day-(2002)/msg15921/#msg15921)-like role. Eh? Eh? Or Betty White. I haven't decided yet.

He looks horrible no matter what age he is. There are some things that don't need to be naked and he's one of them. Now, Halle Berry on the other hand........

I think what they should do is what they did with Austin Powers 3 and front load the movie with all the cameos, so Michael York and Dr Evil (in the "Q" role) and so on, then we get that out of the way and get into the story.  Though we should totally get Will Ferrell as Mustafa again.
Title: Re: Austin Powers 4 (TBA)

Mention Halle Berry again and we'll have to start a wish-list for Jinx cause I won't be able to get it out of my head.

Well just imagine her in Austin Powers 4. They would be cranking up the double entendres and innuendos times 100 for her and she would be oozing with sex with whatever skimpy outfit she could manage to squeeze into.
Title: Re: Austin Powers 4 (TBA)
Post by: Neumatic on January 26, 2013, 10:54:18 pm
She would be interesting, rocking 60s mod outfits and business smart sharp outfits, go go boots and so on.  I can see that.

I think though that they might go with Zoe Saldana.

(Oh my god, watching AP2 there's a wall of old tube HD sets in Austin's pad.  And I actually FORGOT about Fat Bastard, who I kind alike but don't want in AP4).

If not Halle, I wouldn't be all that surprised if they gave Kate (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/tv/commercials/msg16198/#msg16198) the role since she seems to be on everybody's mind these days, especially mine. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/HTL_drool.gif) I don't know if she has acting skills, but that isn't the point.

That seems likely.  Definitely a boob joke name.

I enjoy the Austin Power movies. Mike Meyers was able to concoct  the right resources that hit our funny bones. Even Meyers says his wealth of material is just waiting to be retold. I forgot which one (1, 2 or 3) is clearly one of the Band films. I know this is not news to you guys, but I was rather surprised when I was watching said Bond film, I just couldn't get over how Meyers used so much of it to tell his Powers story.

I probably won't pay to see it in the theaters, but will watch it once it becomes available.

Unlike The Guru I heard was overwhelmingly bad, I didn't bother to borrow it from the library.

As much as I wanna see AP4, this is strictly a Wait For DVD for me.
Title: Re: Austin Powers 4 (TBA)
Post by: Neumatic on January 27, 2013, 11:19:27 am
It all depends on how good the trailer is and if my fam wants to see it as well.

Okay, having started 3 and hearing Kate Upton's name at the same time, I kinda want to see her character "Melanie" (thanks, Chip!) do a Britney/Jessica type dance thing.  Maybe that's her cover job (and not so crazy given Beyonce in the third flick)

If Mike and Jay Roach (Director) can give us something like this for Kate Upton / Agent Melanie Mounds....I'd be more than happy. Tip: Watch video with sound Off. Horrible song. Awesome video.

I think I'm gonna need to pull my Austin Powers Action Figures LOT from eBay today and hold onto them now. Might put them back up when AP4 hits. Might be a nice rush by fans to get their hands on the older stuff if the movie does well enough. Ka-Ching!!

I don't know if you know who Keeley Hazell is but she recreated the car-washing bit there QUITE nicely.  Though you gotta see her Breakfast At Tiffany's photoshoot.

I seriously gotta find a place for Melanie, if Austin's not gonna use her I should.

Oh, rewatching the rhyming slang bit in AP3, I think they gotta get Statham as a villian in AP4.

....Keeley Hazell.

To quote another of Mike Meyers brilliant creations....Schwing (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/movies/wayne's-world-3-(tba)/msg16288/#msg16288)!

Hazell would totally be the Moneypenny role.  Or Melanie's frisky kid sister.  Or both.

I'd pay to see that!

We should just be writin' this out ourselves!

Being MOD, I'd think that Keeley's be rocking business appropo attire but I keep thinking instead she'd rock that open knit top Drew Barrymore wore in Wayne's World 2 b/c I love slipping in references like that.  And it would keep Austin's jaw open when he's trying to flirt.

Oh, and given how many cartoons he's been in recently, I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility to get Billy Connelly to do a cemo as Old Bastard.

Agreed. Your first order of business is to give her a name, much like that of Mrs. Moneypenny.

I was thinking Honeydew.  Honeydew VERY well, baby.

"Honeydew it all night long."

Makes a good secretary-- no one gets past her!

I don't want to make too many direct references but I can totally picture her shooting an agent like at the start of Skyfall. 
Honeydew: Can you forgive me?
Agent (starting at her chest):  ....um... yes, sure, why not?  It's only a lung, honestly, I have another one...

Oh my god, I have the poster in my head, I'll doodle it out when I get back from my walk.

Also have a title in mind, "You Only Shag Twice."
Title: Re: Austin Powers 4 (TBA)
Post by: Chiprocks1 on January 27, 2013, 01:12:02 pm
Given that Meyers likes to mix up spellings or combine words for names, I'd consider changing the name from Honeydew to Honey Deux, which could also double as a reference to her....'puppies' as well as the innuendo that you brought up earlier.
Title: Re: Austin Powers 4 (TBA)
Post by: Neumatic on January 27, 2013, 01:50:40 pm
I like Honey Deux!

Oh my god, how could I not think of this for a title, it was the most anticipated movie of the year?  "Austin Powers: An Unexpected Shagging."
Title: Re: Austin Powers 4 (TBA)
Post by: Neumatic on January 27, 2013, 03:48:33 pm
You know, it's a shame that Honey is human cause you realize if she was a Fembot she'd be packin' patriots.  But if she's human she can contribute more to the plot, competing with Melanie for Austin's affections, bringing some of that same naivete that led Heather Graham to sleep with Fat Bastard in the second flick...

Okay, here's what I've got in my head so far.  It pretty much follows the layout of the third movie:

We start with the New Line logos with some moody contemporary music over, that bleeds into a poppy cover of "Uptown Girl" being sung by Kate Upton's character (cause they sound similar.  Really, that's the only reason I thought of it).  There's a crew and a director in particular that we're paying attention to, but there's someone else.

One of the lesser crewmembers, we realize after a few moments, is Mike Myers!  But not as Austin, just Mike in coveralls.  You think he's a stagehand but he's actually up to something.  Whenever we see Upton getting too sexy we cut back to Myers doing something zany.

At the big moment of the song, Upton's back is turned and the director pulls out a gun.  He's gonna get her!  But before he can, Judo Chop! right in the neck and he's down for the count.

Upton turns and sees what's happened.  Shock, but relief.

The producer barges in, demanding to know what's going on.  JJ Abrams?  Myers tells him that this director is actually an assassin.  Abrams asks "okay, but who are you?"  And Myers pulls off his own face, Mission Impossible style, to reveal Austin Powers beneath.  "I'm back baby, yeah!"

That great theme music starts. we have a whole song and dance number, we even go to the Hollywood Bowl with a huge orchestra performing the theme, Austin in a fancy suit and Upton in a fancy gown.  "Ladies and gentlemen, Mister Yo Yo Ma!"  Violin solo.  Everyone is respectful but Austin does a tiny bit of the dance while he's standing there pretending not to move.

The music kicks back in and we're dancing again.  Austin spins a pinwheel at the screen and we get a psychadelic kaliedescope.  You remember this moment from the opening of Skyfall?:

(http://www.emilysbrother.com/forum-posts/kaliedescope-girls.jpg)

Well, we get that but the girls are, in this order, Keeley Hazell, Kate Upton, and then Austin himself with that rug of chest hair, doing his own "sexy" moves that we know so well.  That pattern repeats a few times, with one of Dr Evil and a few old favourites tossed in as easter eggs.

The song ends, then we cut to the new evil headquarters.  You have SCOTT EVIL in the main chair.  Will Ferrell is back as Mustafa, we have COLIN QUINN as a resentful lower-level baddie (he was originally intended to be Scott, you'll recall), Frau, and ROBERT DOWNEY JR with an eyepatch and dark blue suit a la Number Two.

Scott goes on about his new evil scheme, but they're interrupted by a dark figure that appears in the door.

"Who are you?"
"I'm in charge of this operation now."

The newcomer has a device on her wrist, the pain device from "Spock's Brain."  She presses a button labeled "ROBERT DOWNEY JR" and he falls backwards into the fire pit.  The others quickly bolt out of their seats.

The new boss steps out.  The future Mrs Rocks herself, Halle Berry, our villian for this movie.

Meanwhile, my multiple original properties languish half-completed for want of a spiral-climax...

Oh, I totally forgot about a cameo for Annie Liebowitz.  Or at least the Annie Liebowitz impersonator from Watchmen (Austin was a photographer, I can totally see those two getting into a fight or something).

And now, I give you the Quantum Of Solace-inspired teaser poster concept:
