Ever since New Line was forced to merge with Warner Brothers a couple of weeks ago, it has left a lot of people speculating what New Line properties would still be carried on by the WB, and which ones would fall by the wayside. Well, the obvious one that is still being carried over is The Hobbit, but it seems that New Line chief Toby Emmerich has a couple of sequels in mind as well — including Wedding Crashers 2 and Austin Powers 4?!
Wedding Crashers 2 seems like a given, assuming Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn would be interested in it, but I have to admit I’m very surprised to hear about an Austin Powers 4, especially with Mike Myers’ new movie The Love Guru coming out this summer. I thought he was ready to leave that character behind, but perhaps he’s not so confident in his new project? Then again, it’s quite possible they’re planning this whole thing without him. All I’m going to say is that they better not pull off some lame ass “Son of Austin Powers” sequel. As questionable as the second and third Austin Powers movies were, that just has disaster written all over it. How would you feel about a fourth Austin Powers movie?
