Plans are still afoot to bring Derek Zoolander back to the big screen, confirms Ben Stiller...

It took some time in gestation before Anchorman 2 got its green light, with the film finally due in cinemas next week. But another comedy sequel that's been in the works for a while is a follow-up to Ben Stiller's Zoolander.

The 2001 movie has long being ripe for a follow-up, and it's little secret that one was being worked on. As Ben Stiller told Coming Soon in his latest update on the project, "there's a script that Justin Theroux and I worked on that we really like, and it's just a matter of figuring out how to do it right". "It definitely could happen", he said, "it just hasn't really come together yet".

Stiller added that "for me and the people who are big fans of the movie, I want to make sure that we're doing it in a way that we feel good about, and it takes a lot elements to come together for that to happen".

The report from Coming Soon however suggests that Zoolander 2 will not be the next film on Ben Stiller's roster, but as we find out more, we'll let you know...

I must ask my friend Billy Zane about this.

Having now watched America's Next Top Model with my girlfriend, my eyes have been opened to the fact that the spirit of Zoolander is very much alive and well on television. Now smize and stick out that tooch (dear Lord...)

Put a cork in it!

I do love Zoolander, but I prefer to look back on it in fondness and admire him as a one time character than have him squandered and blurred by a sequel.

I think Tropic Thunder would have been awesome if it was a Zoolander sequel. After modelling Zoolander becomes a film star. Also Tropic Thunder would have benefited if it had more of Zoolanders style of humor and characters.

They should call it 2oolander. That would be awesome. Actually, if they do call it 2oolander, I'll take them to court.
