El consejero espiritual Mike Myers, con Jessica Alba.
Ya se ha publicado la primera imagen de Mike Myers en su nueva película llamada “The Love Guru”. Marco Schnabel es el director de la película, que cuenta con un guión escrito por Graham Gordy y Mike Myers. Justin Timberlake, Jessica Alba, Ben Kingsley, Meagan Good y John Oliver completan el reparto de la comedia de Paramount Pictures.
Mike Myers doesn’t seem like a slowpoke. He tends to talk fast, play multiple characters in his movies and rattle off jokes like Robin Williams on Red Bull.
But the secret behind his comedy, he says, is patience.
It has taken Myers four years to do his first live-action movie since 2003’s The Cat in the Hat and a decade to create an original comic character (his last being 1997’s Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery).
He finally returns with The Love Guru, which hits screens June 20. The film, which also stars Jessica Alba, Justin Timberlake and Ben Kingsley, features Myers as Pitka, an American left as a child at the gates of an ashram in India. Pitka becomes a self-help guru who tries to smooth the marital rift of a hockey star and his wife.
Myers, a native of Ontario, says he wrote the film because of his interests in Eastern philosophy and hockey. But he isn’t the type to zip out a script the moment an idea hits.
