Mike Myers would like to make a film about Shrek every year Movies

Mike Myers would like to shoot one Shrek movie a year.

The 58-year-old actor voiced cute green ogres in four films from 2001 to 2010, the most recent of which is “Shrek Forever”, and this character holds such a special place in his heart that he would be “thrilled” to play the role of each year

In an interview with GQ Mike said: “I love playing Shrek.

“If I had to do one Shrek a year, I’d be thrilled.”

The Austin Powers star added as Shrek turned into a “dramatic role”.

He explained: “There’s an emotional center.

“You know the old joke: I wouldn’t want to be a member of a club of which I would be a member. I always felt that way.

“The concept of moving from a cannibal who hates himself to a man who accepts himself has been significant to me.”

Mike also revealed that originally Shrek was supposed to be Canadian, not Scottish.

He told the publication: “When I was approached to do‘ Shrek ’, I first did it as a Canadian and then rewrote it as a Scotsman because it seemed to be the most working class [accent].

“I also love Scots. I’m of Scottish descent. I’m mostly English, but Liverpool is a basin between Scotland, England and Ireland.”

As for whether there will be another film in the animated series, screenwriter Michael McCallers claimed in 2017 that the fifth series is under development.

The scribe then said, “Shrek Five” is being developed.

“I finished this script, which I really, really, really love.

“It’s really personal to me. There’s a pretty big transformation behind that, which I guess I can’t reveal.”

Meanwhile, Mike once again had to reprise his role in his new Netflix series “The Pentaverate.”

The amorous cannibal played episodes in the fourth series.

Canadian journalist Ken Scarbar (Mike) is undercover in Dubrovnik when he was rescued by Shrek.

Bolotnik says, “I have it, young lady.”

He adds: “I’m a real cannibal from Dubrovnik – now get out of my swamp!”
