Shrek 5 lands Austin Powers writer

October 19th, 2016 by bash Comments


The Hollywood News is reporting that Austin Powers writer Michael McCullers will be penning the script for Shrek 5.

After co-writing all three Powers scripts with Mike Myers, he then wrote and directed the Tina Fey-starring Baby Mama, and was recently tapped to write the Adam Sandler-led animated threequel, Hotel Transylvania 3.

The news broke after Trolls’ directors Walt Dohrn and Mike Mitchell were interviewed on another subject by the trade.

“They’ve got a pretty good story [for Shrek 5],” they said. “It’s being written by Michael McCullers who wrote all of the Austin Powers films. He came up with a really great idea that they’re exploring.”

While Mitchell and Dorn are not yet confirmed to be involved in the project, Dorn revealed: “There’s more story to tell there and we’re ready to help tell it for sure.”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
