Penelope Cruz Joins "Zoolander 2" Cast

4 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After years of murmurings and close calls, the sequel to the 2001 comedy "Zoolander" looks to be finally happening with Penelope Cruz joining the cast.

Ben Stiller is set to reprise his role as male model Derek Zoolander, and will direct from a script by Justin Theroux. Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell are expected to reprise their roles as Derek's rival Hansel and the villainous Mugatu.

The success of "Dumb and Dumber To" at the box office this past weekend has reportedly helped Paramount in their decision to push forward on the sequel which Stiller has been championing for some time.

The project marks another upcoming comedy that Cruz will star in as she has a small role in Sacha Baron Cohen's spy comedy "Grimsby".

Zoolander 2 is Moving Forward, Penelope Cruz Joins Cast

4 hours ago | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

We've been hearing about a sequel to "Zoolander" for several years. And now comes word that Paramount Pictures is officially moving with the new movie, which will be directed by Justin Theroux. The big news is that Penelope Cruz just signed on for a role in "Zoolander 2," which will bring back Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell. The original only grossed $60 million worldwide, which is why the studio has been slow to greenlit the sequel. But after the great performance of "Dumb and Dumber To," studios are once again looking at their properties for a potential revival. Jonah Hill was previously rumored to play the villain in a story about Derek (Stiller) getting hired to be a personal model for an Arab Sheikh and learning that models are being turned into oil. »

The Rise, Fall and Rise of Jennifer Aniston

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the 1990s, Jennifer Aniston was one of the most popular actresses in the world. She may not have been blowing up the box office like Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan or Sandra Bullock, she was instead the star of the hit comedy show Friends – which had turned her into a household name. So popular was Aniston during this period that he hair even became known as “The Rachel”, a much-requested style for hairdressers during the 90s. The show was watched by millions around the world and has become one of the most celebrated Us sitcoms of all-time, launching Aniston and her co-stars into hot property. Particularly as the show couldn’t last forever and the cast would look to transition to the big screen.

Aniston was no stranger to cinema. She got her first break in the horror comedy Leprechaun in 1993, but would take a break during her first few years on Friends. »

Penélope Cruz Joins Ben Stiller in Zoolander 2

10 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Deadline reports that Penélope Cruz has hopped on the Zoolander 2 train and will star with Ben Stiller. Justin Theroux is attached to pen the script, and Stiller will perform double duties as the movie's director and non-ambiturner, ridiculously good-looking lead. Rumors that Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson will return as Mugatu and Hansel, respectively, have still not been confirmed, and there's no word on whether Cruz will be playing a super model. (But here's to hoping Cruz makes a Nespresso for Mugatu and something weird happens.) As Cinema Blend notes, Stiller has been teasing the follow-up for roughly a decade. No pressure, guys. »

Penelope Cruz to join Zoolander 2

11 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ben Stiller is back for Zoolander 2 - and Penelope Cruz has now been added to the cast too...

Well, if you were after proof that the sequel to Zoolander was finally pressing ahead, then let this be it: Penelope Cruz is set to join the cast.

Zoolander 2 will see Ben Stiller reprise the lead role of Derek Zoolander, and it looks like he's going to be directing too (as he did with the first film). He's co-written the script as well with Justin Theroux.

The strong box office returns for Dumb And Dumber To are said to have greased the wheels for Zoolander 2 finally pressing ahead (and the success of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues didn't hurt either). And whilst Cruz's exact role in the film isn't confirmed, her casting indicates that Zoolander 2 is - finally - an active project.

Expect to return are Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson, »

'Zoolander 2' Is Happening and Here's What You Need to Know

14 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

As of today, Dumb and Dumber To - a sequel to an absurd, 20-year-old comedy - has been in theaters for less than a week and is already sitting on a box office haul of over $55 million. So when a simple, long-overdue sequel hits big, you can bet that Hollywood is paying attention, and that typically means trying to do something similar. Enter Zoolander 2. The first Zoolander isn't quite as old as Dumb and Dumber, nor did it ever gain the same kind of household recognition, but it's had a very healthy life on DVD, cable and Netflix since it came out in 2001. The comedy, about dumb male models thwarting a plot to kill a politician, has more than a few fans and Ben Stiller is hoping they'll turn out for a sequel. He's not directing this time around (that job goes to...

The success of Dumb and Dumber To has helped add more steam to the Zoolander sequel. According to Deadline, Penelope Cruz will join the cast with Ben Stiller set to return as Derek Zoolander and Owen Wilson coming back as Hansel.

Penelope Cruz joins Zoolander 2, Justin Theroux to direct

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve long heard that a sequel to the 2001 cult comedy Zoolander was in the works, but that Paramount was a bit nervous when it came to giving it an official greenlight. Back in August The Leftovers star Justin Theroux, who wrote the script and was once attached to direct, said that talks with the studio were still happening, and seemed confident that Zoolander 2 would see the light of day.

Now, we’re one step closer to it actually happening, as Academy Award winner Penelope Cruz (Vicky Christina Barcelona, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) has just signed on to co-star alongside returning cast members Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell, and Owen Wilson.

Deadline reports the news, and cites that Theroux will in fact direct the film, despite the actor’s doubts about it back in August. The site also claims that the success of Dumb and Dumber To, »

Penelope Cruz Joins Zoolander 2

21 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following the sort-of successes – depending on who you talk to – of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and Dumb And Dumber To, the time has come to revive another classic comedy franchise, Ben Stiller’s Zoolander. Work on the follow-up has languished in development since 2010, when Justin Theroux was attached to write and direct the supermodel sequel. Over the last few months, we’ve heard from Theroux that a finished script was in the bag, followed by talk from Will Ferrell that a table read was imminent. Now, we’ve a piece of news to suggest Zoolander 2 might be heading into production sooner than expected.

Courtesy of Deadline, we now know the status of the catwalk caper and the name of a brand new franchise addition – Penelope Cruz. No word on who she’ll play, but she will be appearing alongside the main core of returning cast members. In addition »

Penelope Cruz Joins Zoolander 2 as Comedy Sequel Finally Gains Momentum

21 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Just a few years ago, filmmakers were lamenting the fact that despite the cult success their comedies had enjoyed over the years, studios just weren’t willing to foot the bill for a follow-up.  Director Adam McKay was famously ready to throw in the towel on Anchorman 2 before one last phone call to Paramount led to the film finally coming together, and it enjoyed modest success at the box office last year.  Just last week, Dumb and Dumber To opened in theaters at the Number One spot, proving once again that a comedy sequel released years after the original (in this case a decade) still has an audience.  Which leads us to Zoolander 2.  The original Ben Stiller-led and directed comedy pulled in only $60 million at the worldwide box office, but it gained a massive following on home video over the years. Stiller has been trying to get »

'Zoolander 2' Ready to Turn Left Again with Justin Theroux Directing

21 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Ever since Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues was greenlit and unleashed in theaters last year, fans have been hoping that Paramount Pictures would also grant the same courtesy to Zoolander 2, the sequel to Ben Stiller's comedy favorite from 13 years ago. The film has been developing for years, and this year rumblings of it finally happening came from both co-star Will Ferrell and Justin Theroux, who was named as co-writer and director of the sequel back in 2010. Now Deadline reports the project has life again with Theroux still directing from his own script, and a sexy new co-star has popped up on the catwalk too. Penelope Cruz has signed on to star in the comedy sequel that will also see the return of Will Ferrell as crazy fashion designer Mugatu and Owen Wilson as Zoolander's formal rival Hansel (Owen Wilson). Previously we heard that the film would take »

'Zoolander 2' Gets Moving With Penelope Cruz Joining The Cast

21 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last weekend, a lot of people in America went to see "Dumb And Dumber To," which arrived 20 years after the 1994 original. Clearly audiences were eager for more insipid adventures with Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne. It appears the success over at Fox has Paramount rethinking their plans for the forever brewing "Zoolander 2." A script has been done for a while now, and over the summer Justin Threoux stated that talks were back on and the script was being tinkered with again to try and get it into shape. Well, it looks like it's all systems go. Deadline reports that Penelope Cruz has joined "Zoolander 2," with Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Will Ferrell all expected to return. Huh. We're not so much pleased and kind of amazed this is happening at all. Nostalgia is in the air, and that sensation, as they've seen from their rivals, prints money. The studio »
