Mike Myers and Jessica Alba to Star in Love Guru
August 9, 2007–Jessica Alba will be the female lead opposite Mike Myers in “The Love Guru,” which Paramount will release June 20 release.
Myers has added Romany Malco (“Blades of Glory”) and will reteam with Verne Troyer, who played Mini-Me in the three “Austin Powers” films. Marco Schnabel is directing from a script by Myers and Graham Gordy. Myers and Michael De Luca are producing for Paramount and Spyglass Entertainment.
In his first new character since Austin Powers, Myers plays Pitka, an American who was left at the gates of an ashram in India as a child and raised by gurus. After moving back to the U.S., he attempts to settle a rift between a hockey player (Malco) and his wife, who begins scoring with the star player of a rival team.
Alba plays the hockey team owner and Troyer the team coach. Pitka's job is to check that illicit romance and reunite the couple so the star player can lead his team to the championship.
