The last we heard of a sequel to the Ben Stiller 2001 comedy Zoolander, original writer John Hamburg and Ben Stiller had been kicking around ideas for a new film. Now Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting that Iron Man 2 writer Justin Theroux will not only write but will direct a Zoolander sequel.
The site is reporting that Theroux, who also co-wrote Tropic Thunder which Stiller directed, is currently working out the script with Stiller. It was also said that Theroux was planning a trip to Fashion Week in Paris to, immerse himself on what is current in fashion."
It seems that a deal hasn't been made for Owen Wilson to reprise his role as Hansel in the film, but Jonah Hill is currently in negotiations to star as the film's villain.
