Ben Stiller Announces Zoolander 2 At Parish Fashion Week
Once again, Derek Zoolander is off to take runways by storm with his infamous “Blue Steel” look as Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are set to reprise their roles in the upcoming “Zoolander” sequel.
The announcement was made when both Stiller and Wilson surprised the audience of the Valentino 2015 fashion show during Paris Fashion Week. The pair was seen sashaying down the runway as the already-iconic Derek and Hansel from the 2001 movie.
Shortly after, Paramount Pictures officially announced on Twitter that “Zoolander 2” is coming February 12, 2016.

Plot details are still unknown to many, but fans speculate that the second movie will center on Zoolander’s quest to get back into fashion after a certain period of absence. In an interview with MTV in 2010, Stiller talks about the ins and outs of the fashion industry.
“In the fashion world, if you go away for a year, it’s changed — it just happens so quickly,” he explained. “I think the idea in the beginning of the movie is that it’s 10 years later, and Derek and Hansel [Owen Wilson’s character] are literally forgotten. Nobody remembers who they are, so they have to reinvent themselves.”
Fans will just have to wait and see what Zoolander has in store this time.
