Austin Powers returning

Mike Myers, creator of the Austin Powers film franchise, told SCI-FI Wire that he definitely wants to make another movie and will get to it after he finishes his next project, called The Love Guru. And it might focus on Austin's nemesis, Doctor Evil.

"I have figured out that the story will be taken from the point of Doctor Evil," Myers said in an interview while promoting Shrek the Third. "It will be powered from Doctor Evil's point of view." Myers added: "That will be the first of a trilogy. ... I'm just joking! ... I haven't figured it all out. Who knows?"

But don't get too excited. Myers says it takes him almost 4 years to do a movie. And since he's currently in the middle of a project, we're not going to expect a new Austin Powers before 2010. Though as long as Beyonce Knowles isn't in this one, we're ok with waiting.
