Furthermore, its looking increasingly likely that the movie might just be happening soon.
Why? Well, over at JoBlo, they're reporting there that Will Ferrell has confirmed his involvement in Zoolander 2. He said that "we are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, and Mugatu is a part of it".

Things have gone up and down and round and round for the sequel to the hit film Zoolander. First we were hearing that the project was on hold, then that Ben Stiller was working on a script rewrite. Last month, co-writer Justin Theroux said that there is finally a completed script and Zoolander 2 is moving in the direction of actually getting made. Now, Will Ferrell has confirmed that there’s a sequel script in existence and that his character Mugatu is a part of it.
Speaking with JoBlo (via /Film), Ferrell addressed the existence of the ever-elusive Zoolander 2. Here’s what he said:
We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, and Mugatu is a part of it.
It’s a short but sweet little tidbit, and once more ramps up the hope that we might actually see Zoolander 2 someday. Rumors have »

Will Ferrell, who appeared in the 2001 comedy as an evil fashion designed named Mugatu, offered an update recently, and even dropped the info that his villain could be returning.
“We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, and Mugatu is a part of it,” Ferrell told JoBlo.
While there’s been no official confirmation that a sequel is in fact happening, the players involved, including Stiller and Justin Theroux, have not been shy about talking about it, especially in the past year. In June, Stiller, who directed as well as starred in the first movie, told journalists at Taormina that his production company Red Hour Films was “actively” working on a rewrite.

There have been murmurs of a "Zoolander" sequel for several years now, and every time it seems to pick up steam it just as quickly cools down. At this point it is better to assume it isn't actually happening until they start filming.
When might that be? Sooner than you may think. This week actor Will Ferrell offered a brief update on the status of the long-awaited comedy sequel, and confirmed his evil fashion designer character Mugatu is returning.
Ferrell tells JoBlo: "We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, and Mugatu is a part of it." This follows on from an update from Justin Theroux last month who said: "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 »

Comedian Will Ferrell has made a career for himself playing a wide variety of crazy characters. Since the 1990s, he’s been everything from a Christmas-obsessed elf to an arrogant San Diego news anchorman and even an auditor whose life is stranger than fiction. As a result, Ferrell has managed to both work his way into audiences’ hearts as well as join the list of successful comedic actors, alongside such names as Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller.
Stiller, Wilson and Ferrell actually starred together in 2001′s Zoolander, about a dumb male model named Derek Zoolander (Stiller) who becomes a pawn of corrupt fashion executives wanting to assassinate the Prime Minister of Malaysia. The film received mix reviews upon its release, but has since become a cult classic afterward. There’s been talk of ...

Zoolander 2 is one of those sequels that we always hear about, that may never happen. When last we reported on the movie, Ben Stiller made it clear that the long-gestating sequel "Wasn't happening anytime soon." Three months later, original cast member Will Ferrell is singing a different tune. He claims he will return as villain Mugatu, and that the screenplay is complete enough that a table read is happening sometime in the near future.
It's been 13 years since the original Zoolander hit theaters, and its not incredibly clear how anticipated a follow-up actually is. Sure, the movie has its hardcore fans. But is an audience for a sequel still there? Will Ferrell thinks so, and he can't wait to get back into character as fashion mogul Jacobim Mugatu, who in the original brainwashed fashion model Derek into assassinating the new progressive-leaning Prime Minister of Malaysia. Mugatu is arrested at »
It's been thirteen years since Zoolander first hit theaters, conquering our hearts but not the box office. The interim has seen the invention of the iPod and the decline of the DVD market. Infants born on that day are in the eighth grade and are probably smoking futuristic cigarettes I don't even know about. And yet, talk of Zoolander 2 keeps humming along (despite the aforementioned DVD decline, which is just about the only way the first film turned a profit). Last month co-writer Justin Theroux confirmed that he and Ben Stiller had completed a script for the film and were in the midst of polishing it up. Now Will Ferrell, who played the ever-essential antagonist Mugatu in the first film, has offered up even more encouraging news. Hit the jump for more on Zoolander 2. Ferrell recently told JoBlo: "We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, »

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen any movement on the now-legendary “Zoolander” sequel. Too long, really. Fans of this cult classic comedy have been waiting (im)patiently for the sequel to be officially announced with a release date, but so far, news has been coming up short. However, there seems to be some real movement on the film. Unfortunately, we still have no release date or anything completely concrete, but Will Ferrell has said that there will be a table read! The Hollywood Reporter quoted Ferrell as saying, “We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon,” he said. He also added that his character, [ Read More ]
Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald are a step closer to making their dim-witted returns to the big screen after Mugatu himself, Will Ferrell, confirmed that a read-through for Zoolander 2 will take place in the near future. During a discussion with The Hollywood Reporter, Ferrell revealed that the long-touted follow-up to the 2001 fashion comedy is on the horizon. "We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon," he declared, before adding, "Mugatu is a part of it." Written and directed by Ben Stiller, Zoolander is arguably the American comedian.s most famous foray behind the camera. It tells the tale of Stiller's Derek Zoolander, a idiot who -- after being usurped as the world.s top male fashion model by Owen Wilson.s Hansel McDonald and then publicly ridiculed by journalist Christine Taylor.s Matilda Jefferies -- unwittingly becomes brainwashed by Ferrell.s Mugatu into »
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, »
