Derek Zoolander takes the cover of Vogue and answers their 73 Questions
It’s now less than a month before Ben Stiller’s Derek Zoolander returns to the big screen. To celebrate the release of the comedy sequel, Paramount Pictures has teamed with fashion powerhouse Vogue to land a cover story featuring stars Ben Stiller and Penelope Cruz, with photographs by Annie Leibovitz. They’ve also conducted their famous “73 Questions” with the Zoolander 2 star, and his answers are predictably moronic. Check out the video below as well as the photoshoot in the gallery viewer at the bottom of this page!
“It’s ten years later and most of it is set in Europe,” Ben Stiller previously said of the script. “It’s basically Derek and Hansel ten years later – 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.”
The Zoolander 2 cast also includes Christine Taylor, Kristen Wiig and Cyrus Arnold, with special appearances by Will Ferell as Jacobim Mugatu, Billy Zane, Fred Armisen, Justin Bieber, Kyle Mooney, Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, and more.
Zoolander 2 was filmed for 12 weeks in Rome in and around the famed Cinecittà Studios. The first Zoolander was released on September 28, 2001 by Paramount Pictures and earned $60.8 million worldwide on a $28 million budget. It went on to become a massive hit on DVD and fans have, for years, been wondering when Stiller would return for another Derek Zoolander adventure. It seems that we now have the answer as Zoolander 2 is set for a February 12, 2016 release.
In addition to headlining, Ben Stiller is directing the much-anticipated comedy sequel. He also co-wrote the script with Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder) and is producing Zoolander 2 alongside Stuart Cornfeld.
