The last thing we all expected was seeing Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson walking down the runway at Valentino’s Paris Fashion week show as Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald from the 2001 film “Zoolander”. It’s safe to say that this was the cleverest publicity stunt done for a movie- Ever.
Can we just say that these 2 guys were the best thing that happened in Fashion week this year?
Stiller appeared in a dark blue suit and tie with a navy trench coat, while Wilson wore a light blue pajama print outfit with white sneakers, topped off with a robin egg blue trench coat.
Right before they walked the runway, Stiller and Wilson posted a selfie with the infamous “Zoolander face”
As soon as the show ended, Paramount Pictures announced the release of “Zoolander 2” February, 2016.
Rumors have been going around since 2008 that they’re working on the squeal, and Ben Stiller did say he wants to make a squeal, but it probably won’t be happening. Later in 2010, Stiller said that he will be working with the writer Justin Theroux, who also co-wrote Tropic Thunder with Stiller, on the script.
In 2011, Stiller said “It’s ten years later and most of it is set in Europe… it’s basically Derek and Hansel… though the last movie ended on a happy note a lot of things have happened in the meantime. Their lives have changed and they’re not really relevant anymore. It’s a new world for them. Will Ferrell is written into the script and he’s expressed interest in doing it. I think Mugatu is an integral part of the Zoolander story, so yes, he features in a big way.”
This was said 4 years ago, so we’re expecting a lot of changes in the script.
Now, let us all wait impatiently for 2016 and rewatch the movie a million times till then.
