Theroux, who played the evil DJ in the film, recently spoke to Vulture about the potential for "Zoolander 2," and while he stopped short of saying a sequel was definitively happening, he gave fans plenty of reason to be optimistic about the follow-up's chances.
"Yeah, we've got a script for the sequel, and we've just been in talks again," the actor told Vulture. "We're trying to sharpen it and hone it and, actually, I don't want to jinx anything, but it looks like it actually might be starting to get up and running."

We've been talking about a "Zoolander" sequel for many years. At one point, it seemed that things were moving forward with the attachment of director Justin Theroux and actors Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. But the film eventually fell apart. In a new interview, Theroux revealed that "Zoolander 2" is once again being discussed and may actually go into production soon. "We've got a script for the sequel, and we've just been in talks again," he explained. "We're trying to sharpen it and hone it and, I don't want to jinx anything, but it looks like it actually might be starting to get up and running." Theroux continued: "It's actually been a little hard with the show, but now I'm back full-time to dedicate time toward doing it. I met with Ben [Stiller] a couple times when I was in New York doing 'The Leftovers,' and then I'm meeting »
Back in 2010, writer-director-actor Justin Theroux was asked to write and direct a sequel to 2001′s cult comedy Zoolander, which was directed by and starred Ben Stiller, alongside the likes of Owen Wilson (Marley & Me), Christina Taylor (Dodgeball), Will Ferrell (Step Brothers) and Theroux himself in a small role (he was the “Relax” DJ). Since then, nothing has really moved on the sequel, until now.
Many had predicted that Paramount, renowned for their apprehension over some of their properties, were looking to see how their other big cult property, Anchorman, faired when it green lit the sequel. And while Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues was a success, it wasn’t the runaway box-office juggernaut that they had hoped.
In an interview with Vulture however, Theroux has said that the sequel may be closer to reality than we think. The actor said: “Yeah, we’ve got a script for the sequel, and »

Theroux - who wrote the script for the long-awaited comedy sequel - has said that other commitments may force him out of the director's chair.
"We've got a script for the sequel, and we've just been in talks again," he told Vulture.
"We're trying to sharpen it and hone it and, actually, I don't want to jinx anything, but it looks like it actually might be starting to get up and running."
"I don't think I'm going to do it anymore. It really depends on whether the show gets picked up," he continued. "If it gets picked up, then I don't think I'll have the time to do it. So it'll probably get handed to Ben, »
We've been doing this site now for over seven years, and for pretty much the duration of that time, there's been ongoing chatter about Zoolander 2. Ben Stiller has remained interested in revisiting the character, and he tends to get asked about a sequel in 28.54% of interviews that he does.
This time, though, it's not him that's been asked about. Instead, Vulture chatted to Justin Theroux, who had a brief role in the original film, and has been working on the screenplay for Zoolander 2. And he revealed that "we've got a script for the sequel, and we've just been in talks again. We're trying to sharpen it and hone it and, actually, I don't want to jinx anything, but it looks like it actually might be starting to get up and running".

He's been attached to direct a sequel to Ben Stiller's 2001 comedy "Zoolander" for several years, now "The Leftovers" actor Justin Theroux tells Vulture that the project may finally be coming together:
"We've got a script for the sequel, and we've just been in talks again. We're trying to sharpen it and hone it and, actually, I don't want to jinx anything, but it looks like it actually might be starting to get up and running."
Theroux admits that due to his TV commitments though, he may not be able to helm the project anymore and if so Stiller himself may helm it:
"I don't think I'm going to do it anymore. It really depends on whether the show gets picked up. If it gets picked up, then I don't think I'll have the time to do it. So it'll probably get handed to Ben, which would be awesome."

Get practising your blue steel as Zoolander 2 is starting to gather some traction. Back in 2010 it was announced that Justin Theroux will sit in the directors chair and now, speaking to Vulture, Theroux says “We’ve got a script for the sequel, and we’ve just been in talks again. We’re trying to sharpen it and hone it and, actually, I don’t want to jinx anything, but it looks like it actually might be starting to get up and running.” From Ben Stiller’s perspective, it could be his next project as his acting calendar is empty after Night at the Museum: Secret Of The Tomb. However, the actor has a pretty full on producer schedule, producing Dodgeball 2 and Space Jam 2 over the next two years. And as big as the cult following behind Zoolander is, the original was released in 2001 and one has to wonder, »

There are a lot of fans out there clamoring for more Zoolander, and Ben Stiller bless his underused funny bone has been trying to get a sequel off the ground for a few years. If it can happen to Ron Burgundy it can happen to Derek Zoolander right? Well the catch with Zoolander is, in the studio’s mind anyways, that it didn’t do so well at the box office and its second (and very successful) life on home video wasn't enough to convince them otherwise. The last we »

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues proved that cult comedies can still garner sequels years later, and after that long-awaited followup was met with box office success, many assumed that a green light for Zoolander 2, another much-demanded but never realized sequel, was finally at hand. Now, we’re hearing that the project is finally going to get off the ground.
“Yeah, we’ve got a script for the sequel, and we’ve just been in talks again. We’re trying to sharpen it and hone it and, actually, I don’t want to jinx anything, but it looks like it actually might be starting to get up and running… It’s actually been a little hard with the show, but now I’m back full-time to dedicate time toward doing it. »

Movie News - Justin Theroux says plans are in place to make a sequel of 'Zoolander'. The actor - who recently turned 43 - played a small role in the original film, which was released in 2001, and has confirmed there are tentative plans in place to make a sequel of the popular comedy flick. Asked whether the plans are progressing, he told Vulture.com: ''Yeah, we've got a script for the sequel, and we've just been in talks again. We're trying to sharpen it and hone it and, actually, I don't want to jinx anything, but it looks like it actually might be starting to get up and running.'' Theroux - who is engaged to Jennifer Anniston - has been busy filming HBO show 'The Leftovers' over the last few months, but says he now has the opportunity to focus his attention on the 'Zoolander' sequel, »
Fans rejoiced when Ron Burgundy finally got his sequel with Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues following a prolonged period of Paramount saying “no” to the prospect of a follow-up, and then everyone collectively agreed that it was Derek Zoolander’s turn. Ben Stiller has been trying to get Zoolander 2 off the ground for a few years, but he ran into the same problem that Anchorman did: the first film wasn’t a box office success, and despite invading the zeitgeist through home video, the studio can’t see a profit benefit in greenlighting a sequel. Last we heard, Stiller was working on the script with co-writer Justin Theroux, who planned on directing. That was a couple of years ago, but in a recent interview about his HBO series The Leftovers, Theroux provided a rather promising update regarding Zoolander 2. More after the jump. Speaking with Vulture, Theroux said things »

The sequel to 2001’s Zoolander has been drifting along on the edge of happening for years now. Script re-writes, scheduling issues and more have delayed any real progress, but according to actor Justin Theroux – who has been attached to direct since 2010 – it might finally be coming together.Of course, we’ve been down this road before: star and co-writer/director of the first film Ben Stiller told us himself in 2011 that it was “close”. According to Theroux, who played the evil DJ in the original film, it’s still all being worked out. “We’ve got a script for the sequel, and we’ve just been in talks again,” he tells Vulture. “We’re trying to sharpen it and hone it and, actually, I don’t want to jinx anything, but it looks like it actually might be starting to get up and running.” Ah, you just jinxed it, Justin. »
On HBO’s The Leftovers, Justin Theroux plays Kevin Garvey, a small New York town’s reluctant and possibly crazy police chief who, three years after the sudden and unexplained disappearance of a good chunk of the world’s population, must contend with a divorce, his wayward children, a cultlike organization called the Guilty Remnant, and evil deer. Vulture called up Theroux to discuss the show, how it differs from his experience shooting David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive pilot for ABC, what’s going on with the Zoolander sequel, and why he’s never starred in any of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, despite having a superhero physique. What question do you get asked the most about your show?“What’s up with the Guilty Remnant?” Really? It’s not, “What do you have in your refrigerator that could be construed as leftovers?”Exactly! [Laughs.] No, it’s not — although I »

When Cabin Fever came out in 2002, it was a sensation among fans of freaky frights. The film packed more than a little punch with its own version of the karate kid, a leg shaving scene that set disposable razor sales back for a year, and a German Shepherd who made Cujo look like a lapdog.
Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever left a legacy hard to live up to, but of course a dumbed-down sequel was released. It was directed by Roth’s Bff Ti West, but one would never guess that after the studio heads got hold of it in the editing room and butchered it.
Regardless, the Cabin Fever name still carries weight so there is a prequel that's out now on demand and will be in theaters on August 1, 2014.
This time the story centers about the initial outbreak of the creeping virus. On a remote island, Patient Zero »

Looks like the Secret Life of Walter Mitty star just revealed his own brawny secrets—and they're no figment of your imagination. Ben Stiller let his ripped guns out while enjoying the fun and sun on the beaches of Hawaii, and we didn't even know he was packing this kind of heat! Spotted shirtless and drying off after a day of paddleboarding, the 48-year-old funnyman known for his Blue Steel look in Zoolander also served up some abs of steel in his multicolored, floral board shorts. Paddleboarding in Hawaii seems to be his workout of choice because we've caught him reveling in this water sport before. Back in 2012 Stiller was on a holiday getaway with his family in Kauai, and »

It was a sad day for Arrested Development fans back in 2006 when it was cancelled after three seasons. One of the most original and innovative, not to mention funny, shows on television it didn't conform to any of the usual norms for television comedy, and instead forged its own wry, witty path as the saga of the Bluth family unfolded on our screens.
When Netflix announced that they were bringing it back there was joy in this reviewer's heart as I'd missed the Bluth family, as dysfunctional and appalling as they are, and couldn't wait to see what further adventures they would get up to.
This being Arrested Development, nothing about returning for a fourth season was ever going to be conventional. Rather than being shown weekly, all fifteen new episodes were released simultaneously on Netflix, and for good reason, as while they »

If you should have the good fortune to visit Sicily in June, the last thing you want to do is sit inside and watch movies. That’s just as well for the Taormina Film Festival, since half the movies are shown outdoors in the Teatro Antico, and the other half no one wants to see anyway.
Taormina is the first film festival I’ve attended where film seems to be the least important thing going on. Three years ago, the event was on the brink of bankruptcy when Tiziana Rocca took the reins and rescued it. One thing I’ve learned about Southern Italy this week: When life gives them lemons, they make limoncello.
A publicity maven from Rome, Rocca instinctively understood that glamour would be the way to bring attention back to Taormina. And so, for eight nights in the middle of June, the city becomes the backdrop for starry awards shows, »

In a recent interview with BuzzFeed, "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe was asked if there were any film franchise he'd like to join next, what would they be?
He quickly responded: "Batman. If they reboot that again I'll do that too. It's happening, isn't it? With Ben Affleck. I could be Robin, I'm perfect." Could the boy who lived one day be the boy wonder?
Speaking at the Taormina Festival in Sicily the other day, Stiller sadly had bad news for fans. He tells THR: "The film's been discussed and in some way in the works for 10 years. But there are no plans to start production any time soon." »

Director Ridley Scott is working on a "Prometheus" sequel, which is set to hit theaters on March 4th, 2016. And while Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace will return, it will be difficult to bring back any other actors from the first film. In a new interview, however, Guy Pearce expressed interested in reprising his role as Peter Weyland. "I'd love to go back and play that character again," he said. "I think it's possible. Who knows? When you look at science fiction and the ways things can develop -- technologically speaking -- anything's possible, really, isn't it?" Meanwhile, Ben Stiller gave an update on his "Zoolander" sequel, which has been in the works for years. "I can't say that it's actually a reality yet, but I hope some day it is," he explained. "The film's been discussed and in some way in the works for 10 years. But there are no plans »
