‘Austin Powers’ musical coming?
Mike Myers’ movie franchise Austin Powers looks set to receive a musical makeover for a Broadway show, according to a U.S. report.
The funnyman first debuted the outlandish character in 1997’s Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, and went on to release two sequels – 1999’s The Spy Who Shagged Me and 2002’s Goldmember.
He’s currently working on a fourth installment, and now editors at New York Post’s gossip column PageSix reports he’s also considering creating a stage adaptation of the spy tales.
A source tells the publication, “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.”
