ZOOLANDER 2 Still In Development

Never count a good male supermodel out.

First, the proposed sequel to Ben Stiller’s 2001 comedy Zoolander had a writer in Tropic Thunder‘s Justin Theroux and it looked like Stiller might be able to get the studio interested in making the film.

Then a few months later, Stiller tweeted that that the follow-up’s future looked to be in doubt due to Paramount not wanting to pony up the $50 million needed to finance the film .

But if you’re still looking for Derek Zoolander to strut down the runway and hit you with his patented Blue Steel look, there’s hope. On Friday, Stiller tweeted that he and Theroux were still working on getting the film in front of cameras –

It’s unclear exactly what they are working on, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were going trough the script and looking for a way to trim it down a bit to get it a bit more inline budgetarily with what the studio is willing to pay for. Hopefully, this won’t compromise the comedy.
