Update - A first viral teaser:
Since last year Actor Ben Stiller has been considering a sequel to the 2001 comedy movie Zoolander. He has even enlisted Justin Theroux to pen a script. I also heard that Jonah Hill was approached to play the villain in the sequel. Unfortunately due to budget woes Zoolander 2 went to a halt . But more recently, in January 2011, Ben Stiller confirmed again that Zoolander 2 is still in the works and that he's pitching the film to the studios:
"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."

Plot of Zoolander 2:
“Zoolander 2 will likely be set 10 years later with Derek Zoolander dealing with the fact that he is no longer a model, possibly spending his days running a modeling school and taking care of his now 10 or 11 years old son.”
Let's remember the first Zoolander movie with this trailer:
It would be really great to have both Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson reprising their roles for the movie Zoolander 2. Well, let's also hope that the studios will fund the project...
Anyway, stay tuned with us for more details about the movie Zoolander 2.
