After announcing Zoolander 2 by doing their little turn on the catwalk during Paris Fashion Week, Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) took to the streets near the Eiffel Tower with fellow supermodels Xiao Wen Ju and Tilda Lindstam to show off some sexy items from Valentino’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection (via Facebook), which you can scope out in the gallery below! Also, don’t miss our interview with Stiller in which he talks about how Zoolander 2 finally happened.
Zoolander 2 will shoot in Rome for 12 weeks in and around the famed Cinecittà Studios, with Ben Stiller set to reprise his role as the dimwitted male supermodel. Stiller co-wrote the script with Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder), who will also direct the film. Theroux played an Evil DJ in the first movie.
Additionally, Will Ferrell is all-but-confirmed to return as Mugatu, with Stiller’s wife Christine Taylor also coming back as Matilda and Oscar-winner Penélope Cruz along for the ride as well. Jonah Hill, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell and Anna Wintour have all been rumored to appear in supporting roles or cameos.
The original film grossed only $60 million worldwide in 2001, but the film became a fast hit on DVD and plans for a sequel have been discussed for years. Stiller will produce alongside Stuart Cornfeld for Paramount Pictures, which will release Zoolander 2 in theaters on February 12, 2016.
