‘Zoolander 2’ fast-tracked…finally

Over two years ago, I blogged about the possibility of a sequel to 2001’s Zoolander. Stiller confirmed it, and it was supposed to happen – but then it didn’t. Other projects, such as Tropic Thunder, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, and the third Meet the Parents movie took priority. And that was the last we heard about Derek Zoolander.

Until now.

Paramount and Stiller are teaming up with Justin Theroux (Tropic and Iron Man 2 writer) to pen the sequel that has supposedly been put on the fast track. Owen Wilson isn’t confirmed yet – but here’s to hopin’. And Jonah Hill will “most likely” be the villain (though I could definitely do without him).

Now we can all stop praying and eugooglizing about the sequel’s fate, and quote the shit out of Zoolander to amp ourselves up instead.

I’ll start:

Hansel: So I’m rappelling down Mount Vesuvius when suddenly I slip, and I start to fall. Just falling, ahh ahh, I’ll never forget the terror. When suddenly I realize “Holy shit, Hansel, haven’t you been smoking Peyote for six straight days, and couldn’t some of this maybe be in your head?”
Derek Zoolander: And?
Hansel: And it was. I was totally fine. I’ve never even been to Mount Vesuvius.
