Back in November, Ben Stiller said that he and Justin Theroux were working on a script for Zoolander 2 and now we’ve got some good news for you orange mocha frappucino fans. According to Stiller’s interview with Empire, the script is finished and currently being reviewed by Paramount Pictures brass. Perhaps the best news of all? Will Ferrell‘s Mugatu will return, piano tie and all.
“Where it’s at is we’ve completed the script, Justin Theroux and I, and handed it into the studio,” Stiller said. “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’s featured in a big way.”
So, it appears that Derek Zoolander never found out that there is more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good-looking. And, it looks like things aren’t all peachy between him and Hansel. Maybe we’ll see another walk-off between “Han-Solo” and “Boo-Lander.” Or maybe, just maybe, a break-dance fight.
