It’s great to know that Zoolander 2 is finally happening.
The sequel to Ben Stiller’s hit 2001 comedy will once again see him on both sides of the camera, this time with a screenplay by Justin Theroux.
Theroux, by the way, is the lead actor on HBO’s The Leftovers who wrote Iron Man 2 and co-wrote Tropic Thunder and Rock of Ages.
The high-profile project has also attached its female lead in form of Academy Award-winning actress Penelope Cruz, according to Deadline.
There’s no word on what role Cruz will be playing, but there are rumours Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson will be reprising their roles as the villainous Mugatu and supermodel rival Hansel respectively.
