Ben Stiller Confirms Zoolander Sequel

Posted on: January 17th, 2011 at 10:44 am by

Ten years on, the dimwitted, yet “really, really good looking,” Derek Zoolander is returning for a sequel. Ben Stiller confirmed recent rumors, saying that the script was just completed and on its way to the studio. While this news is exciting, it’s only normal to be skeptical about a followup with such a long hiatus in between, especially for a  movie that wasn’t a huge box office smash.

But there’s hope. Much of the cast from the first film is reportedly returning; Will Ferrell will reprise his role as Mugatu, and Owen Wilson as Hansel.

With the Lower East Side so fashion-heavy these days, will Derek and the gang be partying on Bowery 2.0 or searching the neighborhood for overpriced vintage threads for the Derelicte line? Anything’s possible.
