We're not always wild about sequels, but we're definitely excited about these two!
It's been nine years since really really ridiculously good looking male models won us over in Zoolander, and Justin Theroux, who is co-writing the film's sequel with Ben Stiller told MTV that the script is well on it's way. "I'm feeling very optimistic about it. We're doing a few little tweaks before we submit it, but I'm very hopeful that I'm going to be working on that soon," he said.
Theroux added that Will Ferrell will be reprising his role as Mugatu, and Jonah Hill will come on board as well. "Fingers crossed, anything is possible in Hollywood, but I think you're going to see Mugatu. We are planning on seeing Mugatu," he said. "There are a couple new villains that step onto the stage, which we are all very happy about. And yes, Jonah is the inspiration for one of them."
So what's the film about? "[W]e start off with them in a pretty bad place," Theroux said. "They're about to ring 40's bell. They have to claw their way back into the fashion industry in some way or another."
In other sequel news, Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green has revealed that for the film's sequel, he wants to take James Franco and Seth Rogen's characters and "go in the Scarface direction." Green told MTV, "I want to see them in the Miami coke scene. It could get a little gruesome ... Or take it in the Clear and Present Danger direction and go to South America."
Though there haven't been any official meetings or statements regarding the sequel, both Franco and Evan Goldberg, who co-wrote the original script, are down with the idea.
