Think back to the last live-action feature film you saw Mike Myers star in. There’s a good guess you didn’t say Quentin Tarantino’s 2009 film Inglourious Basterds, but that’s actually the last time the comedian graced the silver screen. Until now. Myers has been reported as joining Terminal, an upcoming dramatic thriller from debut feature writer/director Vaughn Stein. And he’s not in this alone.
First of all, as was reported earlier this year, Margot Robbie stars in the picture as a “dynamic woman” named Annie who is actually much more than what she appears. Also joining the film, which is currently filming in Hungary, are Simon Pegg, Dexter Fletcher, and Max Irons.
The story of Terminal tells “of two hit-men (Fletcher and Irons) as they embark on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a high paycheck. Along the way, the unlikely pair come across a dynamic woman named Annie, (Robbie) that may be more involved than they had originally suspected.”
Myers may have been out of the spotlight for a few years now, but he’s still hard at work behind the scenes. There have been rumors of a fourth Austin Powers film for years, though it looks like a series Myers is crafting for HBO might see the light of day sooner. Pegg, meanwhile, will be heard in Ice Age: Collision Course this July 22nd in the States, and then actually seen on screen in Star Trek Beyond that same weekend. Pegg will also feature in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One adaptation, due out March 30, 2018.
Fletcher, who recently directed the crowd-pleaser Eddie the Eagle, is slotted to appear in the horror anthology film 60 Seconds to Die and the action/horror film Eat Local, directed by Jason Flemyng. Irons, meanwhile, has the ITV series Tutankhamun where he plays Howard Carter, and the war drama/romance Bitter Harvest due on his slate sometime this year.
