Almost 15 years since the debut of “Magnum”, Derek Zoolander will finally return to theaters. Paramount has announced via Twitter that Zoolander 2 will be released on February 12, 2016.
The announcement coincides with the Valentino fashion show, and even though it’s a women’s fashion show, that didn’t stop Derek (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) from walking the runway because of course it didn’t.
Details on Zoolander 2 are scarce. Filming will be taking place in Rome, Christine Taylor and Will Ferrell are returning, and Penelope Cruz is also on board. We don’t know anything about the plot, and as Anchorman 2 reminded us, comedy sequels, especially to cult classics, are tough. But the high-stakes world of men’s fashion modeling is still worth exploring, and hopefully Zoolander 2 will be really, really, ridiculously good looking.
Here’s some quick video from the event:
