Whether you’re excited or outraged at the prospect of a new Austin Powers movie (and a quick glance at our comments suggests there are people in both camps), you may want to put your feelings on hold just a little while longer. Although news broke a few days ago that Mike Myers was “signed, sealed, delivered” for the fourth installment of the comedy franchise, a new report suggests that the deal hasn’t been signed yet after all, and that New Line actually isn’t too sure what’s going on.

Mike Myers Signs For ‘Austin Powers 4’

Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the Mini Cooper, Mike Myers has unearthed his crooked, yellowed old Austin Powers dental prosthetics, sharpened one incisor into a pen, and used it to sign a ragged contract that will lead to a fourth Austin Powers film. Or so we’re told. Read More »

Mike Myers to Voice Pepé Le Pew In New Movie

pepe-le-pew

He’s French, he’s in love and he stinks. Of course, we’re talking about Pepé Le Pew, the famously accented Looney Tunes skunk who strolls around Paris looking for beautiful women. Well, it seems that everyone’s favorite lovelorn skunk is going to be coming to the big screen and that he’ll be voiced not by the late Mel Blanc, but instead by none other than the current man of a thousand voices, Mike Myers. Warner Brothers is developing a film based on Pepé where he and the girl of his dreams, Penelope Pussycat, would be CG characters and everyone else would be real. Hit the jump for more on this turn of events and to see a video of what Pepé Le Pew means in today’s popular culture.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

I was a little surprised when a solo movie vehicle for interplanetary Looney Tune zealot Marvin the Martian was announced but that was some time ago and since then, I assumed it was dying a slow death out in the cold. Not so, apparently and Alex Zamm, director of the upcoming Bevery Hills Chihuahua 2 and previously attached to a Hong Kong Phooey adaptation, has been tapped to take on directing duties.

The only one of Zamm’s movies that I’ve actually seen was Inspector Gadget 2, which he also co-wrote, and I have to say that I don’t remember it very favourably. Maybe he’s come on in leaps and bounds since then? I certainly share this love of cartoons he’s apparently indulging, and I respect his desire to elasticise some live action movies into toon territory.

It’s been so long since the Marvin movie was last talked about I’m a little surprised they’ve kept the original story premise. It’s a bad one too.

IngloUrious BastErds

The Weinstein Co today sent out a press release announcing last week’s start of production on Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming WWII film Inglourious Basterds. You might notice that both words are misspelled, much like the early screenplay that got leaked onto the internet a few months back. That is the official title of the film, likely in an attempt to distinguish itself from the 1978 Enzo Castellari film which inspired Tarantino.

You can read the full press release after the jump, which features a full cast and crew listing. New additions to the cast list include: Omar Doom and Michael Bacall (from Death Proof), Julie Dreyfus (Sophie Fatale from Kill Bill), Cloris Leachman (from The Mary Tyler Moore Show), and many others. Photo above thanks to Tarantino Archives. It is also worth mentioning that an Inglourious Basterds poster has again begun to circulate the internet movie sites. It has the wrong title spelling, so I’m pretty sure it’s fan created.
