It Looks Like Zoolander 2 Is Happening, With Will Ferrell Returning As Mugatu

If you’ve never watched the highly underrated Zoolander, I suggest you either go and watch the whole movie right now (no seriously, right now. Stop reading this and go watch the movie), or you suck up the next few minutes of your life watching the following clips:

Now that we’re well acquainted with Zoolander which subsequently means that we’re all clamoring for a sequel, here’s some good news…

There isn’t going to be a sequel.

Just kidding, yeah there is, aka Zoolander 2.

Will Ferrell has confirmed he will reprise his role as the villainous fashion designer and piano-key necktie inventor Mugatu in a sequel to the 2001 comedy.
Plans for another outing for the Ben Stiller-helmed comedy about the dim-witted, really, really, ridiculously good-looking model Derek Zoolander, have been mooted for years, but it looks like it could finally be happening.

Ferrell told joblo.com work was being done. “We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, and Mugatu is a part of it.”
This follows news that actor-writer-director Justin Theroux, who appeared in the original, said last month progress was being made in bringing Zoolander back to the big screen. “We’ve got a script for the sequel, and we’ve just been in talks again,” he told Vulture.com. “We’re trying to sharpen it and hone it and, actually, I don’t want to jinx anything, but it looks like it actually might be starting to get up and running.”

Rumor has it that Theroux is in the running to direct the film, however there’s a chance that Stiller will be back in the director’s chair since Theroux may have prior commitments that could prevent him from doing the film. That’s all fine by me, just as long as I get more scenes like this:
