It Looks Like Zoolander 2 Is Gonna Happen
I’m still holding out for a sequel to one of my favorite comedies of all time (there have been rumors of making an Anchorman 2) but Zoolander is up there on the list too and Ben Stiller just revealed to Empire that a sequel to that is very much in the works. The script is already finished, as a matter of fact, and it again has Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell written into it!
Empire recently got a chance to chat exclusively with Ben Stiller about two films he’s involved with. One is IT Crowd star Richard Ayoade’s Submarine, which boasts Stiller as a supportive executive producer. The other, which we managed to get him talking about, is a slightly anticipated comedy sequel currently known as Zoolander 2.
Discussing the further adventures of Derek Zoolander (Stiller) and fellow model Hansel (Owen Wilson), Stiller naturally couldn’t say too much at this early stage, but he was happy to share some details.
“Where it’s at is we’ve completed the script, Justin Theroux and I, and handed it into the studio,” he told our Nick de Semlyen. “Now the studio has the script and we’re at that point where we’re waiting to see what they want to do. It’s ten years later and most of it is set in Europe. I don’t want to give away too much, but it’s basically Derek and Hansel ten years later – though the last movie ended on a happy note a lot of things have happened in the meantime. Their lives have changed and they’re not really relevant anymore. It’s a new world for them. Will Ferrell is written into the script and he’s expressed interest in doing it. I think Mugatu is an integral part of the Zoolander story, so yes, he features in a big way.”
