Gisele Bundchen is set to take the female lead in the fourth Austin Powers film.
The Brazilian supermodel has reportedly read the script and scheduled a meeting with Mike Myers, who writes and stars as spoof British spy Austin in the film, and director Jay Roach to further discuss the role.
Gisele would be following in the footsteps of fellow beauties Elizabeth Hurley, Heather Graham and Beyonce Knowles, who have all starred as Austin's love interests in the films.
This would not be Gisele's first film role. She previously appeared alongside Queen Latifah in 'Taxi' in 2004, and had a small part in 'The Devil Wears Prada' in 2006.
Meanwhile, while Mike has not confirmed the title for the forthcoming movie, he has revealed the film will be from the perspective of Dr. Evil, Austin's enemy, who is also played by Mike.
He explained: "There is a fully conceived idea for a fourth and I can just say that it's from Dr Evil's point of view, so if you balanced how much it was Austin with Dr Evil, it's more Dr Evil than Austin."
Mike has previously enjoyed box office success as the bespectacled secret agent in 'Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery', 'Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me' and 'Austin Powers in Goldmember'.
