Stiller Talks “Zoolander 2” Story & Status

Ben Stiller has confirmed last week’s reports that he’s working on a “Zoolander” sequel. Speaking with MTV News, the actor in fact let slip some potential plot details as well with the action set ten years after the original.

As a result “Derek & Hansel are literally forgotten. Nobody even knows who they are, so they have to re-invent themselves”. At present he is “in the process of getting a script written. It’s in the early stages, but it’s gonna happen”.

He also hopes to bring back the original’s poodle-haired villain Mugatu (Will Ferrell), saying that “if Will says yes, he definitely has to be a part of it. To me, Mugatu is one of the classic screen villains of all time.”
