zoolander210Empire recently had a chat with Ben Stiller about his role as Executive Producer on Submarine (out in March) but they also got to ask him about the forthcoming comedy sequel Zoolander 2.

He didn’t reveal much as the film is still in its early stages but it will involve the further adventures of supermodel Derek (Stiller) and his rival Hansel (Owen Wilson).

“Where it’s at is we’ve completed the script, Justin Theroux and I, and handed it into the studio,” said Stiller, “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.”

So yeah…not really any detail there other than the return of Mugatu and nothing we really couldn’t have worked out for ourselves. Gee Ben, 10 years later? It must have been a real stretch to come up with that given that Zoolander was released in 2001. No details on when this might hit our screens but watch this space.
