Ben Stiller’s comedy Zoolander came out in 2001 and grossed $60 million worldwide (on a $28 million budget, though, so it turned a profit), but has since then, Zoolander’s quotes and memes have been a popular choice for internet users over the years.

Zoolander 2, as co-written by Stiller and Justin Thereoux (Tropic Thunder) with the latter also onboard as director, will pick up in real-time after the first installment, with Derek Zoolander (Stiller) and Hansel McDonald (Owen Wilson) both having left their days of being successful models far behind them. What happens from there remains to be seen. It’ll probably include more male models, David Bowie and hilarious situations.


Zoolander 2 will be filmed on location around Rome and in the Cinecittà studios there, beginning this spring and taking place for some 12 weeks in total.

Zoolander 2 beings filming this spring, possibly with the intention of making a 2016 release date. What do you think? Will this be a hit or a Dumb and Dumber 2 follower?
