Mike Myers to Film in T.O. for 'Love Guru'

Yeah Baby - a triple-dose of good news:

First of all, Mike Myers is making his first live-action film in four years. Secondly, the movie will be filmed right here in Toronto this August. And finally, the movie is about a Canadian, played by Myers, who is left in India and turns into some sort of (probably hilarious) love guru.

Obviously, I'm a big fan of Myers and it's cool that he's still proudly Torontonian (well, from Scarborough, but close enough). It's also impressive how many popular characters he has created and how hugely successful his films have become (or how his not-so-successful films have become cult hits).

Even if you don't see Myers at Tim Horton's this summer, I'm hoping to see more than a little Toronto in the movie. This is how he described Pkta, the main character, in an interview with comingsoon.net: ""He is a Canadian raised in India, becomes a guru, and helps the Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup."

Even if he's joking about the Leafs thing, I'm looking forward to the film, which doesn't come out until June 2008. If you need a Myers fix until then, Shrek the Third will be all over the place on May 18th.
