New Line Sweeps Shag Rumor
Austin Powers pic title still uncertain
The rumor that New Line had chosen Licensed to Shag as new title for its third Austin Powers film whipped through movie fan Internet sites Wednesday like an Aston Martin on ice.
There was only problem: "It's completely erroneous," a New Line spokeswoman said. "We don't even like the title."
New Line is still shopping for a new name for the summer release, she said. The MPAA hit the company with up to $15 million in penalties when James Bond franchise owner MGM protested New Line's failure to properly register the previous Austin Powers in Goldmember title.
