A Ben Stiller Tweet Reveals ZOOLANDER 2 Might Not Happen

     May 2, 2010

It looks like Derek Zoolander is so not hot right now.  Even though Ben Stiller is ready to make the sequel happen, the green light (and paper) needs to come from the suits at Paramount.  Similar to our report on the fate of our favorite chauvinistic anchorman, studio financing is not looking too good for the male model.

A recent update from Ben Stiller’s twitter (via DarkHorizons) revealed that the potential size of the budget seems to be the reason we might not be getting to see Derek challenge Hansel to another walk-off: “Ron Burgundy and Derek Zoolander looking to appear in sequels. Both men destitute, without means or intellect to fund their own comebacks.”

We all know how Hollywood works by now. This doesn’t mean the project is necessarily dead. Let’s hope that this is just a minor speed bump on the catwalk to Zoolander 2.

    Damn you Paramount. You guys pass on Anchorman 2 even though it would have made you guys alot of money and now your passing on Zoolander 2? WTF. If Paramount ain't going to fund these movies than at least let the people involved take it to another studio. Look at Hellboy 2, Sony passed on it and Universal came through to pick it up. If Anchorman 2 and Zoolander 2 cant be done at Paramount than let them take it to another studio. Stupid Paramount is being stubborn and not letting them do it.

    Anchorman 2 not happening, Zoolander 2 not happening.. I've got a renewed hope and faith in humanity..

    So in the age where 3/4 of all new movies are sequels, prequels or reboots, Paramount is choosing to not greenlight two immensely popular properties for sequels?

    Is the world upside down? Are dogs and cats living together in harmony? Is humanity on the brink of Armageddon?

    I enjoyed both Anchorman and Zoolaander and I'd prefer a couple of new comedies to sequels. In fact, I'd like to see Stiller and Farrel sit back and relax for a couple of years, frankly. I think I'd rather they focus on smaller roles and producing – maybe cultivate some new talent. I'm sure we can all offer counter examples, but sequel comedies generally aren't that great. Also, Stiller and Ferrel's shtick is well worn by now, right? Anyone out there not familiar with what these guys do?
