In a recent interview with Empire regarding upcoming film ‘Submarine’ (directed by Richard Ayoade: The IT Crowd, Nathan Barley) the conversation seemed to turn to Zoolander 2. Ben Stiller had this to say:
“Where it’s at is we’ve completed the script, Justin Theroux and I, and handed it into the studio…Now the studio has the script and we’re at that point where we’re waiting to see what they want to do. It’s ten years later and most of it is set in Europe. I don’t want to give away too much, but it’s basically Derek and Hansel ten years later – though the last movie ended on a happy note a lot of things have happened in the meantime. Their lives have changed and they’re not really relevant anymore. It’s a new world for them. Will Ferrell is written into the script and he’s expressed interest in doing it. I think Mugatu is an integral part of the Zoolander story, so yes, he features in a big way.”
Whilst the film is still a LONG way away, the king of sequels seems to have done it again. Lets hope that this one doesn’t ruin the original for the rest of us!
