Ben Stiller Confirms Zoolander 2
Stiller played brainless fashion model Derek Zoolander who was almost brainwashed into assassinating the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Derek had to rely on his catwalk nemesis Hansel (Owen Wilson) to stop the evil Jacobim Mugatu (Will Ferrell) from carrying out the kill.
“We’re in the process of getting a script written, so it’s in the early stages. But yeah, it’s going to happen.” Thank God, we’ll get to see more really, really ridiculously good looking people.
But things are going to be different this time around. “I think the idea in the beginning of the movie is that it’s 10 years later, and Derek and Hansel are literally forgotten. Nobody remembers who they are, so they have to reinvent themselves.”
On whether or not Will Ferrell will be involved, Stiller commented that, “If Will says yes, he definitely has to be part of it. To me, Mugatu is one of the classic screen villains of all time.”
But is it too little, too late for a Zoolander sequel? I mean, Owen Wilson still looks as hot as hell but I think Stiller might have lost his sex appeal.
