Garfield: The Movie

Garfield: Comic strip cat Garfield will return to the big screen in an animated movie, with hopes to launch a franchise. Jim Davis created the lazy, lovable feline for a comic strip that began running in 1978 and has inspired numerous television versions, two movies featuring the voice of Bill Murray as Garfield (Garfield: The Movie, above), and three other direct to video films.

Austin Powers in Goldmember

Austin Powers: Mike Myers is still mulling the possibility of a fourth Austin Powers movie. Jay Roach, who directed the first three installments, says that he and Myers talk about it every time they get together, though he describes the project as being "in a latent phase right now." Roach says that many ideas have been discussed, but none have stuck yet. The latest installment to date, Austin Powers in Goldmember (above), was released in 2002. [Larry King Now]

Wilson recently appeared in How to be Single (above) and Grimsby and is also slated to star in the upcoming Pitch Perfect 3. [Variety via Yahoo]
