Ben Stiller Reveals ‘Zoolander 2′ Plot, Script Co-Penned By Justin Theroux
While there have been numerous reports circluating over the last few years that Ben Stiller had been developing a sequel to the hit 2001 comedy Zoolander, he recently revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that he has indeed written a script, and collaborated with Justin Theroux for the possible film.
So, what is the really, really, ridiculously good-looking Derek Zoolander up to these days?
According to THR:
“Stiller opens up about the much-anticipated sequel to his 2001 hit, telling THR he’s ‘very proud’ of the script, which was written last year (with his Tropic Thunder co-writer Justin Theroux). The story will pick up 10 years after the first film left off and, Derek’s ‘School For Kids Who Can’t Read Good’ has been destroyed, leaving him in charge of its pupil. ‘There were maybe 20, 30 drafts,’ Stiller remembers, ‘and at one time I walked away from it and they had somebody else rewrite it and they were going to do it without me, which was kind of ironic. Then it came back around.'”
Sounds hilarious! We would love to see this film get made.
