11 Mar – "Zoolander 2" stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson channeled their onscreen model personas, Derek Zoolander and Hansel, at the Valentino Women's Collection Fall/Winter 2015-16 Fashion Show held yesterday for Paris Fashion Week.
The live teaser is meant to promote the upcoming sequel to the 2001 "Zoolander", Coming Soon reports, and the movie's release date has been set for 12 February 2016 in North America.
Stiller will be reprising his titular role but word has it Justin Theroux will be directing, as well penning the script, this time around. Wilson's presence on the Valentino runway means he will be back as Zoolander's supermodel rival, Hansel.
Will Ferrell is set to return as the sinister Mugatu, while Penelope Cruz has signed on to presumably strut down the runway in the upcoming sequel. There are also talks of "22 Jump Street" star Jonah Hill and supermodel-actress Cara Delevigne joining the production.
The first "Zoolander", about a clueless male model named Derek Zoolander who has been brainwashed to assassinate the Prime Minister of Malaysia, was banned in said country. It was released in North America in September 2001, making a modest USD60.7 million against its USD28 million budget. The movie, however, gained a huge following after its release on DVD.
