It’s been almost 15 years since the “really, really, ridiculously good-looking” Derek Zoolander — and his rival-turned-friend, Hansel — walked the catwalk, but the runway of Valentino’s show at Paris Fashion Week saw their amazing return on Tuesday.
The surprise appearance of the duo, played by Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, marks the official announcement of a long-awaited sequel, appropriately titled Zoolander 2.
With a release date set for February 12, 2016, Stiller (49) will direct the sequel of the cult classic from a script by Justin Theroux (“Iron Man 2,” Tropic Thunder”). Also starring Penelope Cruz, the Paramount Pictures film will start shooting in February in Rome for release on Feb. 12, 2016.
While no details have been released about the plot of the film, it’s been widely reported that Will Ferrell will return as the eccentric Mugatu.
