Zoolander 2 script done with roles for Will Ferrell and Jonah Hill

Oct. 11, 2010by: JoBlo

Wow, I had heard rumblings that "fan interest" was getting ANCHORMAN 2 and ZOOLANDER 2 on track for actual release at some point in the future, but I guess I didn't realize that the latter was already getting script treatments.

MTV caught up with writer Justin Theroux, who has a draft of the script done for the film which is allegedly supposed to be released in 2012. This is all news to me.

Where will find Hansel and Derek in the sequel?

"It's too funny — it'll blow your mind," the writer/director said, though he did share the plot's starting point, in which Stiller's Derek Zoolander and Owen Wilson's Hansel find themselves pushing 40 and no longer the white-hot center of the fashion world. "[W]e start off with them in a pretty bad place," he said. "They're about to ring 40's bell. They have to claw their way back into the fashion industry in some way or another."

As for the return of Mugatu? It just might happen.

"Fingers crossed, anything is possible in Hollywood, but I think you're going to see Mugatu. We are planning on seeing Mugatu," he told us. "There are a couple new villains that step onto the stage, which we are all very happy about. And yes, Jonah (Hill) is the inspiration for one of them."

I never did understand why this movie wasn't made like, six or seven years ago when this series was still pretty hip, but I for one will be happy to return to the world of ZOOLANDER so long as it's up to the standards of the first. I'm glad to see this is at long last moving in the direction of actually happening.

Extra Tidbit: Man, has Stiller's only good movie since 2001 really been TROPIC THUNDER? Don't get me started on NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM.

I could barely sit through the first one, so I'll pass on this.

Trippin' on acid changed our whole perspective on shit!

I LOVE Zoolander. Let's just hope Paris Hilton doesn't have another cameo. Oh, and David Bowie should have a major role this time. Can't wait to see this!

One of the previews to The Social Network in my theatre featured a fashion segment that looked like models were dressing as homeless people. My buddy and I turned to each other and said "Derelict". Glad to see this is finally happening.

Zoolander was a great movie and gladly welcome a sequel. It'd be awesome to see Ferrell back as Mugatu since he nailed the role. One person I would love to see return is David Duchovny. He was hilarious in the first. Hopefully if this movie does well, we will get Anchorman 2.

I loved Zoolander, Will Farrell made that movie, so his character being included in the sequel is a must, and the idea of Jonah Hill being one of the villain is another hilarious inclusion. Now all we need is Russell Brand and Zach Galifianakis.
