Updates for Austin Powers 3
2002: Austin Powers In Goldmember Update:
revealed a little more about Britney Spears' cameo in the
upcoming Austin Powers In Goldmember movie. In it, Britney
stars as a Fembot!
Britney attacks secret agent Austin - with her bulging
bosom. Austin - played by Myers - wanders onto the set of
one of Britney's music video's and discovers she is really
a deadly "Femme Bot" robot. In the script, Britney
even jokes about real-life rumors she has had a breast enlargement,
quipping, "It's true, my breasts have been enhanced."
Her nipples then open up to reveal machine guns, which she
fires at Myers' character. A movie source told Britain's Daily
Star tabloid, "Britney's breasts are the star of the
show. The scene is hilarious. She reveals her rude side -
and she isn't afraid to make fun of her own boobs." Britney
isn't the only star to make cameo appearances in Goldmember
- which hits cinema screens next month. Tom Cruise, Danny
DeVito, Kevin Spacey, Ozzy Osbourne and Gwyneth Paltrow also
purportedly make cameo appearances.
28th May 2002: Austin Powers In Goldmember Update:
Sterling, who plays Frau Farbissina in the Austin Powers movies
says that the third film, Austin Powers In Goldmember, will
be the last. This appeared on Film Unlimited,
Austin Powers III will be the spoof sleuth's last outing,
one of the actors has told the Chicago Sun-Times. Mindy Sterling
who plays Frau Farbissina said "I'm told this is the
last Austin film, but I certainly hope there are four, five,
six and seven. These movies are so much fun." Sterling
also revealed that the film centres around Austin's father,
played by Michael Caine, being kidnapped by Dr Evil. "Austin's
dad is also a babe magnet. Frau is actually turned on by him.
I cannot say how far she goes or if it becomes a love triangle
with Dr Evil," she said.

Finally for today, i've heard a rumour that Beyonce
Knowles' character Foxxy Cleopatra 'shags' Mini
in the film. This was printed in UK tabloid and apparently
came from Knowles's own mouth, and i've also heard this from
other sources. The scene to rival Felicity Shagwell and Fat
Bastard's sex scene from the second film perhaps?

As reported last week, MGM and New Line
have come to an agreement over the use of Goldmember in the
third Austin Powers movie. New Line, who will distribute AP3
will release the film as Austin Powers In Goldmember, but
all future movie's will have to seek MGM's approval before
parodying more Bond titles. Austin Powers In Goldmember will
no doubt carry at least one MGM trailer, probably Die
Another Day, the 20th Bond movie.
It seems that New Line and MGM have
almost agreed a deal on Austin Powers 3 having that controversial
subtitle Goldmember. Variety reported today that, although
no deal has of yet been placed, the two stufios are discussing
the possiblity of New Line using the title in return for one
of MGM's movies' trailers, possibly Die Another Day, being
attached to Austin Powers 3 or indeed their 'big release'
of the year Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers.upon their release.
The trade also stated that even if the studio's came to an
agreement, the final decision would be with the Broccoli family
and Eon Productions, who own the Bond franchise. Not being
allowed the title, New Line would have a serious problem on
their hands as one of the films main character's is named
Goldmeber (played by Mike Myers). The
studio has already had to pull its first run of promo posters,
pictured at the top of the page.

More trouble regarding the title 'Goldmember'
in Austin Powers 3. MGM apparently offered to soffen their
stance of the use of the title if New Line moved the release
ate for John Q, due to open on February 15th alongside MGM's
Hart's War starring Bruce Willis and Colin Farrell. New Line
refused and now the third Austin Powers movie may have its
release put back, that's if MGM sue them and if MGM win the
case, all references to Goldmember will have to be removed,
including the character named Goldmember. We'll have to see
New Line Cinema have withdrawn all of
their online promotional material that bears Austin Powers
In Goldmember. Hollywood studio MGM and Danjaq, the British
company that controls the Bond film license, said that the
title was too similar to 'Goldfinger'. They obtained a cease-and-desist
order against New Line Cinema that prohibits New Line from
calling the film Austin Powers in Goldmember. An MGM spokesperson
commented, "MGM/UA and Danjaq have a zero-tolerance
policy towards anyone who tries to trade in on the James Bond
franchise without authorization," The question now
is what will happen to the character of Goldmember in the
movie? Mike Myers was to play the character along with Powers
himslef, Dr. Evil and Fat Bastard.
It looks like Madonna will be doing
a track for Austin Powers In Goldmember. She previousley recorded
the song 'Beautiful Stranger' for Austin Powers' last movie
outing, The Spy Who Shagged Me'. The
Sun reports that the Queen Of Pop has cut the track in
London last month.
Also, here are two great pics that have appeared online from
New Line's Austin Powers In Goldmember. The first features
Dr Evil and Mini Me in prison clothes (see bottom left) and
the seconds is our first look at Beyonce Knowles as Foxy Cleopatra
in the film (see bottom right).
