Zoolander 2 is “bigger and better” than the original
The “Blue Steel” pose is back and more “ridiculously good looking” than ever.
“We’re shooting the Zoolander sequel at the moment,” Ben Stiller said, confirming another fashionably hilarious movie about clueless supermodels. “Derek’s going to be back bigger and better than before —no catwalk is safe,” Channel24.com reported.
Zoolander (2001) ended happily with Derek (Stiller), Hansel (Owen Wilson), and Matilda (Christine Taylor) conquering the evil Mugatu’s (Will Ferrell) machinations to kill the Prime Minister of Malaysia. Hopefully the sequel will provide dastardly fashion plots with more “break-dance fighting” and “walk-offs.”
“It’s ten years later and most of it is set in Europe. [Derek’s and Hansel’s] lives have changed and they’re not really relevant anymore. It’s a new world for them,” Stiller revealed to Empire Magazine.
While no actors are at this time attached, Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder), who played the Evil DJ in the last Zoolander, is confirmed to be director.
Although there is no doubt that Wilson will return to his iconic supermodel role, the villain is still up for grabs.
Stiller told Empire “Will Ferrell (Mugatu) is written in the script and he’s expressed interest in doing it,” but Jonah Hill is also in negotiations to play the villain.
The sequel will most likely be released in theaters in 2012 with a PG-13 rating.
