'Zoolander 2' Strutting Our Way

Get ready for another hour-and-a-half of Ben Stiller giving puckered stares at the camera. Deadline Hollwood reports, only a decade later, a sequel to Zoolander is on the way. Justin Theroux, the Charlie's Angels 2 villain quickly becoming better known for writing Tropic Thunder and Iron Man 2, has been hired to write and direct.

As for the villain, Will Ferrell will apparently be replaced by Jonah Hill, who is already in talks for the part--appropriate, considering Hill (and Seth Rogen) is the new Will Ferrell of "God, I'm so sick of seeing this guy in every comedy" comments. Owen Wilson remains uncommitted.

I'm not sure how much I'm into the prospect of another Zoolander, but I am excited that further popularizing the character could shave off some of Austin Powers' and Borat's Halloween costume sales. Someone needs to break up that monopoly of shitty, quickly-outdated costumes with equally shitty, quickly-outdated impressions.
