"You know, [Mike Myers and I> talk about it every time we get together," he told King. Reports for a fourth film surfaced in 2011, but Roach admits nothing has been solidified.

King asked if they had any new ideas for the movie, Roach said, "It's been many years of kicking around, we’ve had so many, but there hasn't been one that's stuck yet."
