Back in January Ben Stiller announced he and Zoolander screenwriter, Â Justin Theroux had completed the script for ‘Zoolander 2‘. Stiller revealed the script had been submitted into the studio for pending approval earlier this year.
Now, Owen Wilson has added more information on the sequel. During an interview with SlashFilm, Wilson revealed his character, ‘VH1 Model Of Â The Year’ has sufferedÂ a disfiguring injuryÂ similarÂ to Tom Cruise in Vanilla Sky since the 2001 original.
Stiller announced the script will pick up with the dim-witted Â models 10-years after the 2001 film took place.
“Most of it is set in Europe,” said Stiller. “I don’t want to give away too much, but it’s basically Derek and Hansel 10-years later, though the last movie ended on a happy note aÂ 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.
What do you think about the new plot?
