Mike Myers joins Simon Pegg in Terminal, is really turning things around now

Deadline reports that Mike Myers is going to do the right thing and team up with Simon Pegg and Margot Robbie—two actors who are in high demand these days—for the noirish Terminal. Myers hasn’t appeared onscreen much since the dreadful Love Guru, preferring to lend his voice to ogres and his words to Canada. He did put his British accent to good use in 2009’s Inglorious Basterds, though, and joining Pegg and Robbie for Terminal seems like another step in the right direction.

Robbie was the first to sign on to the film, which she did just months ahead of the release of the multiple summer blockbusters she’s appearing in this year. There’s currently no word on just what Myers or Pegg’s roles will be in Terminal, which centers on a pair of hitmen (not played by them) who accept an especially dangerous assignment and run into a “dynamic” woman (Robbie) along the way. But with the threat of another Austin Powers movie looming—franchise director Jay Roach is pretty keen on having another go at the bird—we suggest director Vaughn Stein get cracking. Too late—someone’s already added Austin Powers 4 to Myers’ IMDb projects.
