Mike Myers on for Austin Powers 4

August 15th, 2011

Mike Myers will appear in a fourth 'Austin Powers' movie.

The Canadian actor - who has played the spoof British spy in all three of the previous films - has signed a deal for another project in the franchise, although no storyline or director has yet been confirmed, HitFlix.com reports.

It will be the first time Mike has appeared in a big role since the ill-fated 2008 movie 'The Love Guru' - for which he won the Worst Actor Razzie - although he has voiced the lead character in animated movie 'Shrek' in all four of the films.

'Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery' - the first movie in the franchise about the spy's mission to rid the world of Dr. Evil, also played by Mike - made $67 million in cinemas worldwide, but the 1999 follow up 'Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me' grossed $312 million.

The third 'Austin Powers in Goldmember', starring Beyonce Knowles, took $296 million at the box office.

Other stars who have appeared in the series include Elizabeth Hurley - who played spy Vanessa Kensington - and Heather Graham, who starred as Felicity Shagwell.
