Christine Taylor has confirmed that she is reprising her role as journalist Matilda Jeffries from the 2001 comedy “Zoolander'” in that film’s upcoming sequel.
Taylor tells EW: “I can tell you that I’m involved, but that’s all I can say. I can tell you it’s happening, but I can’t tell you where Matilda’s at and where their relationship is at. It’s all top secret!”
After several years stuck in development, “Zoolander 2” is finally moving forward with Ben Stiller slated to star and direct. Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson are expected to reprise their roles in the sequel, whilst Penelope Cruz will be joining the fun.
The story will be set a decade after the original, most of the action will be set in Europe where Derek isn’t relevant anymore. Justin Theroux penned the script.
