After a
five year absence,
Mike Myers
returns to live-action comedy as
The Love Guru
,
his first original creation since Austin Powers. 
Justin
Timberlake
has just been announced as part as cast, along with previously
confirmed

Jessica Alba,
Romany Malco
and Verne Troyer.

In
the The Love Guru, Mike Myers plays Pitka, an American left at the gates
of an ashram in India as a child and raised by gurus.  He moves back to the U.S.
as a man, seeking fame and fortune in the world of self-help and spirituality.
 According to Paramount Pictures:  

"[Pitka]
must settle a rift between Toronto Maple Leafs star hockey player Darren Roanoke
(Romany Malco) and his estranged wife.  After the split, Roanoke’s wife starts
dating L.A. Kings star Jacques Grande (Justin Timberlake) out of revenge,
sending her husband into a major professional skid — to the horror of the teams’
owner Jane Bullard (Jessica Alba) and Coach Cherkov (Verne Troyer).  Pitka must
return the couple to marital nirvana and get Roanoke back on his game so the
team can break the 40-year-old ‘Bullard Curse’ and win the Stanley Cup."



Marco Schnabel
— second unit director for
Meet the Parents,
Fockers, and

Goldmember
— is directing The Love Guru when shooting begins in
September in Toronto, from a screenplay written by Myers and Graham Gordy.



The Love Guru

will hit theaters June 20, 2008.
