Myers refused to back down when the radio host asked for specific confirmation of another movie.

“It was an unconfirmed confirm confirmation,” Myers said.

The “Austin Powers” franchise has produced three films. The original was released in 1997, with its sequel being released soon after in 1999.

The actor shared in an interview that he could neither "confirm nor deny" a fourth installment in the hit film franchise.

If the franchise were to produce a fourth film, it would be without one of the film’s biggest stars, Verne Troyer.

In 2018, Myers publicly mourned her “Austin Powers” co-star, Troyer, who was born with achondroplastic dwarfism. He died in late April 2018 and his death was ruled a suicide.

Myers appeared on an episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in 2018, just two weeks after Troyer’s death.

“Verne was a fantastic human being and…yes,” Myers said, visibly suffocated as the audience cheered for Troyer.

“I’ve worked with him for a long time. He’s a great comedian. I always want to emphasize that point. As written, Mini-Me is almost like a prop, but he took it off the page and made it better than written, and we ended up giving him more and more to do. A great physical actor and a great dancer, just a fantastic guy.
