UPDATE: Mike Myers is not working on Wayne's World 3

Nov. 19, 2012by: Niki Stephens

UPDATED: This hurts me to say this, but Myers' people just contacted me to let me know that the EW report was incorrect. Myers is not working on a script for WAYNE'S WORLD 3. Sorry, everyone.

There's nothing I'd like to see more than a third WAYNE'S WORLD film. Talk of WAYNE'S WORLD 3 originally began back in 2008 when the guys returned for SNL, but Mike Myers was quick to dismiss the idea. When the guys reunited for SNL last year, they sparked heavy rumors that a third film was on the way. We waited, and waited, and waited...nothing happened. Is Mike Myers mental?

In January, Dana Carvey said that he would be up for reprising his role as Garth. Was this the reason that Myers finally got to work on the screenplay for the third installment? I don't know, but what the hell else has he got to do besides another AUSTIN POWERS movie.

EW.com dropped us a line that Myers has finished his first draft of WAYNE'S WORLD 3. The story is said to focus on, "Wayne and Garth coping with the new era of music, transitioning from access cable to streaming internet (ala Youtube) and Wayne balancing his marriage to Cassandra." There is no official timeline for this since Myers still has AUSTIN POWERS in the works.

For all I care, Myers could dump AUSTIN POWERS and just focus solely on WAYNE'S WORLD 3. One of the biggest challenges of creating a new storyline for Wayne and Garth is the change in the music scene. I'm sure we can all agree that the guys will think that Justin Bieber blows goats. But what are they listening to now? Are they still dressing the same way? That's a big part of who Wayne and Garth are. The real question is: can these characters still be funny in this day and age? Of course they can.

Extra Tidbit: "If Benjamin were an ice cream flavor, he'd be pralines and dick."

Anyone think this was released as a rumor just to see if people would welcome another Wayne's World. Think about it. For almost an entire day, I not only acknowledged Mike Myers' existence again. I was actually excited about something he was making. When the hell was the last time that happened to anyone under the sun?

So instead of an original idea he's cranking out another sequel to Powers?

A third Wayne's World could really be a challenge and original. A sequel to a quintessential 80's-90's film bringing it into the 21st century? Wow. That could be incredible... and you know what? Mike Myers could be the one to pull it off.

Oh, but instead of that challenge he's going to do ANOTHER sequel to a series of films that have had their day in the sun and any sequel will be more of the same rehashing the same jokes that were rehashed in the two sequels to the first film. (sigh)

(sigh) Another Austin Powers film is a waste of his talent. He needs a come back, not coming back to the well that's been tapped too many damn times.

I think Myers should take this story and steal the idea. Bringing Wayne, Garth and their world into the online world full of music piracy and direct distribution could be amazing.

Mike Myers: You are a genius, be original don't go back to the tired franchise. Be bold. Listen to that voice in your ear. It's no Obi Wan, it's Phil Hartman telling you to be better, trust your inner talent and be funny.

Maybe they can merge Wayne's World 3 with Bill & Ted 3. They just seem like they should exist in the same universe.

I would be glad to see this come out! IMO, this would be awesome unless they just tried to fuck it up. And if it is for some reason awful, then it still doesn't hurt the awesomeness of the first two.

And BTW, I would be happy to see another Axe Murderer too! Not a box office smash but still cheesy good fun. [link]You make me horny, on Saturday Morning! Harriet, Sweet Harriet!"

NOT TRUE!

First Showing just confirmed this is a hoax. It should have tipped you off that your source link doesn't even go to this made up story. [link]

I'm more than happy to get that Dr. Evil film at some point before I die, but Wayne's World has the beauty of not having nearly as much exposure as Austin Powers has over the years. I would much rather see another Wayne's World and holy shit do I want it to be great.

I'm all for it

Wayne's World is one of my fav comedies and is easily the best SNL movie of all time. It was one of those movies that i saw when i was a kid when it first came out and 80% of the jokes went right over my head but i still liked it. Then to watch it through out the years and to get all the classic jokes (stuff like "a gun rack......" or The Shitty Beatles) made it all the greater.

"But Benjamin is my friend"
"No, Benjamin is no ones friend. If Benjamin were an ice cream flavor, he'd be

But honestly, if it isn't at least pretty good then it is clear Myers has lost his touch. I mean if he can't nail Wayne's World then whats left to him? I Married an Axe Murderer, Again!?

This really could be the thing to salvage these guys' careers. Whatever, I like Wayne's World, and if both of them are willing to return, then it might not be a complete abomination like Blues Brothers 2000.

I love these guys, but Wayne's World came out more than 20 years ago. Mike Meyers is turning 50 this year and Dana Carvey is almost 60 years old. That said, I think this film can be a triumph if the script is up to the challenge and acknowledges that these guys have gotten older and it's a different world than it was in the 1990's. If they do that, and give us at least one more headbanging round of Bohemian Rhapsody, all will be good in the "World".

I would be all for a Wayne's World 3 as long as it doesn't dumb them down too much. Sure have them trying to adjust & understand today's music & downloading & MP3 players & viral videos. Maybe even have them trying to save the music industry or MTV. I would rather this happen then another Austin Powers movie thats for sure.

Shaaaawing!

This is great news! I can totally see a storyline where Wayne and Garth have to deal with dubstep and all of today's crappy music.

Wayne would have 2 kids. One is essentially a mini-Wayne. The other being temped to the dark side of Bieber and Rebecca Black. And its Wayne and Garths mission to save him.
