Mike Myers has been running around the New York-theater circuit in order to polish off a new character he has. After who knows how long, Myers is finally confident to take this character, Pitka, to Paramount.

Myers and Pitka Go to Paramount

According to Variety, Mike Myers is making a deal at Paramount Pictures to co-write, produce and star in an untitled comedy based on Pitka, a new-age guru character he road-tested in New York-area theaters.

Pitka is a character that comes in to solve a couple's romantic problems. My Myers, who will write the script with Graham Gordy, will play the eccentric character.

As he did with Austin Powers, Myers honed the new character through a series of quiet stage shows. The campaign wasn't entirely covert, as several press reports appeared during the tour. According to one in New York magazine, Myers sported a fake nose and beard, chanted a fake mantra -- "Mariska Hargitay" -- and wore "a pair of assless chaps."

Myers has become close to Paramount ever since he signed on to How to Survive a Robot Uprising last month.

Though the actor continues to pop up in the spotlight, his production schedule is still unclear. With Shrek the Third due out next summer, Myers has slowly been picking up projects including a possible biopic of the Who.

Stay tuned for updates.
