Austin Powers 'to be turned into Broadway musical'
The Austin Powers spy spoof is reportedly set to be turned into a Broadway musical written by Mike Myers.
Myers is said to be in talks to write a stage show featuring the 1960s era secret agent.
He has already agreed to write and star in a fourth instalment of the hugely successful film franchise.
Production on Austin Powers 4 is expected to start next year but Myers, who created the spy, is also planning to write a musical about the secret agent.
"Mike is in talks to turn Austin Powers into a musical stage show," a source told the New York Post.
"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."
The comedian 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.
All three films took more than $600m at the box office, and, apart from the animated films featuring Myer's voice as Shrek, have been his most successful films.
Myers, 48, reached a deal earlier this year to play Austin Powers for a fourth time.
A source told the Post:" The deal is in place, and Mike is currently writing the new Austin Powers film.
"No date has yet been set to start filming. It is not yet clear if it will be 2013 or 2014 release."
During his last outing as Austin Powers, Myers managed to persuade Tom Cruise, Gwyneth Paltrow and John Travolta to appear in cameo roles.
