When Ben Stiller spoke about Zoolander 2 last March, he said that the long-awaited sequel would see his Derek (Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) ten years later and that no one knows who they are anymore. We also learned that Mugatu (Will Ferrell) would be back as well. However, Stiller tweeted in May that the film may not happen. But our hopes were restored in November when Viacom COO Tom Dooley said that Paramount was still planning to make Zoolander 2.
Stiller now tells Empire that he’s completed a script with Iron Man 2 screenwriter Justin Theroux and they’re waiting to see what Paramount wants to do. Stiller also revealed that the film will take place in Europe and that Mugatu “features in a big way.” Hopefully this project won’t die in a freak gasoline-fight accident and we’ll see Blue Steel on screens once more.
