New York, Dec 12: Mike Myers is apparently planning to turn his series of hit “Austin Powers” spy-spoof flicks into a Broadway musical.
A source said Myers, who wrote and starred in the three wildly popular movies, is in talks to turn groovy 1960s-era secret agent Powers into an all-singing, all-dancing theatrical production.
“Mike is in talks to turn ‘Austin Powers’ into a musical stage show. Mike would be heavily involved in writing the show, but he will not star in it, even though he has quite a good singing voice,” the New York Post quoted the source as saying.
Myers has also signed a deal with New Line for a fourth “Austin Powers” movie, nearly a decade after the last instalment.
He last donned the character’s false teeth and shaggy wig in 2002′s “Goldmember.”
Sources revealed Myers reached a deal a few months ago to write, produce and star in the fourth film in the series after lengthy talks with New Line.
“The deal is in place, and Mike is currently writing the new ‘Austin Powers’ film. But no date has yet been set to start filming. It is not yet clear if this will be a 2013 or 2014 release,” one source said. (ANI)
