Austin Powers vs. IG-88

Myers Rises Up for Robot

from Sci-Fi Wire

Paramount Pictures has attached Mike Myers to star in its SF spoof movie How to Survive a Robot Uprising, Variety reported. Myers reteams with his Austin Powers producer Michael De Luca on the movie, which is based on a tongue-in-cheek manual by Daniel H. Wilson, a doctoral candidate at the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University.

Paramount bought the book last year and set Reno 911 creators Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant to write the script. Myers will play the lead character, a technical administrator who has the thankless job of sounding warnings against the growing presence of robots and researching ways to keep those robots from taking over.
