Comic actor MIKE MYERS has signed an amazing money-making deal to star in AUSTIN POWERS 3.
The star is to be paid $25million (£16.5million) to play the shag-loving, brown-toothed swinging superspy and his arch enemy DR EVIL plus 21 per cent of the gross profits.
AUSTIN POWERS: THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME earned $309million (£203million). If Myers had had a similar deal then, he would have earned $65million (£43million). (PDD/WNWCAN/KW)
