“For serious.” A script for Zoolander 2 is almost complete and if everything works out Ben Stiller may have a new villain to go up against — Jonah Hill!
Justin Theroux spoke with MTV News about the progress he’s making co-writing the Zoolander 2 script and says he optimistic it will be done!
“The script is in good shape right now,” he said. “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.”
And not only will Owen Wilson likely being returning as Hansel in the film, Will Ferrell should be set to return as Mugatu and Jonah may be making his Zoolander debut!
“Fingers crossed, anything is possible in Hollywood, but I think you’re going to see Mugatu. We are planning on seeing Mugatu,” Justin explained. “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 plot look like for the sequel?
“[W]e start off with them in a pretty bad place,” Justin said of Zoolander and Hansel. “They’re about to ring 40’s bell. They have to claw their way back into the fashion industry in some way or another.”
But that’s all you’re going to get! Although, Justin does promise, “It’s too funny — it’ll blow your mind.”
