Zoolander 2 – Ben Stiller confirms it is go – Hansel and Mugatu could return

I am a big Zoolander fan. Makes me laugh everytime I see it and in my opinion it is one of the best films Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell have worked on. Plus it has David Bowie and Billy Zane, he’s a cool dude. A sequel has been rumoured over the years, but now Mr Stiller has been chatting to MTV about his new film Greenburg, but he got onto the subject of the Zoolander sequel.
“Yes, it is true,” Stiller confirmed of the sequel plans. “We are in the process of getting a script written. It’s in the early stages, but it’s gonna happen. We’ve been trying for years to… figure it out. It’ll have input from all the… ‘Zoolander’ people. It’s just… taken awhile.”
Most importantly: Stiller and his “‘Zoolander’ people” now have a starting point to work from. “We have a new story idea that we feel excited about and we’re going to try to go forward,” he said. “The beginning of the movie is [set]… 10 years later, and Derek & Hansel are literally forgotten. Nobody even knows who they are, so they have to re-invent themselves.”
Of course, one of the biggest questions that remains is whether or not Will Ferrell’s Malaysia-hating fashion designer Mugatu will return. “If Will says yes, he definitely has to be a part of it,” Stiller said. “To me, Mugatu is one of the classic screen villains of all time.”
I hope Ferrell does return as Mugatu was a great creation.
How do you feel about a Zoolander 2?
