Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson recently popped up during Paris fashion week reprising their Derek and Hansel characters from Zoolander to officially announce production on the sequel. It looks like the pair stuck around Paris for a while longer to do a little additional posing for the camera, as evidenced by these new photos featuring Stiller, Wilson and their ridiculously good-looking faces.
Zoolander 2 isn't scheduled to officially start filming until later this spring in Rome, but it looks like stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson just got a jump on the production. The Zoolander stars showed up in character as Derek and Hansel and closed out the Valentino show at Paris Fashion Week with a walk on the runway.
A sequel to Ben Stiller’s ‘Zoolander’ has been a long time coming. The original movie, which followed the hilariously dumb misadventures of a male model named Derek Zoolander (Stiller), opened in the fall of 2001. 13 years later, work is finally starting to ramp up on the follow-up. Actor and writer Justin Theroux will direct ‘Zoolander 2’ (which should be called ‘2lander,’ for obvious reasons), and Stiller will reprise his role as Zoolander, along with Owen Wilson as his model buddy Hansel and Will Ferrell as the world’s most evil fashion designer Mugatu. Deadline says that the returning cast now has its first new addition in the form of the lovely Penelope Cruz.
Could Lady Gaga be starring in 'Zoolander 2' alongside Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson? Back in 2010, Wilson said that Gaga "has to be" involved in the sequel and now is that dream casting actually taking shape?
