After months of debate, arguments, and "positive hype" for the the third installment in the Austin Powers series, the film will be called Goldmember. New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. finally agreed to let comedian Mike Myers parody the title after the famous James Bond film title, Goldfinger. MGM owns the rights to all of the Bond films and didnít want to confuse anyone, or lose any money with the false name, as Bond is a billion-dollar franchise for the film company. The new 007 flick starring Pierce Brosnan and Halle Berry, Die Another Day, will be released this fall. The "official" release date for Goldmember is July 26.
