For Cameron Diaz, being a big old ogre in Shrek movies might be a better gig than glamming it up in Charlie's Angels.
"If somebody asks me if you're going to do a Charlie's Angels 10 years from now, I'm like, 'What?!'" laughed Diaz at yesterday's press conference for the fourth and final installment of Dreamworks' Shrek series, Shrek Forever After.
"It's a little bit different fitting in those pants from 10 years ago, but Shrek of course we get to go back to whatever they will be 10 years from now. I'm in," she said, adding "but hopefully we won't have to wait that long."
Unfortunately, no matter how much Diaz and her castmates enjoyed doing Shrek, Dreamworks assures us that Shrek Forever After is absolutely the end of the line for everyone's favorite grumpy Scottish ogre and his medieval fairytale entourage.
The plot of Shrek Forever After itself is a bit of a reboot. When con man Rumpelstiltskin offers Shrek the chance to live a dream day in which he's the scary ogre he used to be, Shrek winds up stuck in an alternate reality where Rumplestiltskin is the evil king, ogres are hunted, and none of Shrek's friends know him.
There are some new characters, voiced by none other than Kathy Griffin, Jane Lynch, Craig Robinson and Jon Hamm. And many old favorites reappear, albeit in slightly changed form—Fiona has become the bad-ass leader of an underground ogre resistance and Puss in Boots is a fat housecat.
Speaking of Puss in Boots, we may not have seen the last of him yet. Although the team behind Shrek swear on their lives that this is the last of this series, they did let drop that Dreamworks is planning a Puss in Boots spin-off. "Kind of like The Jeffersons splitting off from All in the Family," Shrek director Mike Mitchell told E! News.
Do we smell a Shrek cameo? Perhaps. In the meantime, you can get your final Shrek fix in theaters everywhere starting May 21.
