Ben Stiller Confirms Zoolander Sequel Details

Ben Stiller as ZoolanderBen Stiller has confirmed Zoolander 2 will be set 10 years after the original film and in Europe.

The 45-year-old actor, who starred as male model Derek Zoolander in the 2001 comedy movie about a group of fashionistas taking on an evil businessman, reveals the script has been completed for the sequel and "a lot has happened" since the first film, with Derek and Owen Wilson's character Hansel no longer relevant on the fashion scene.

Where it's at is we've completed the script, Justin Theroux and I, and handed it into the studio. Now the studio has the script and we're at that point where we're waiting to see what they want to do. It's ten years later and most of it is set in Europe. I don't want to give away too much, but it's basically Derek and Hansel ten years later - though the last movie ended on a happy note a lot of things have happened in the meantime. Their lives have changed and they're not really relevant anymore. It's a new world for them."

Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau Talk Iron Man 2

Friends and co-workers Favreau and Downey discuss future projects

UPDATE: Thanks to one of those smarter people who actually brought a camera, The Game Jerk has posted a video of the Q&A that you can check out after the jump.

Although I have continuously kicked myself repeatedly for not bringing a camera last night, I was still at least able to mentally hold on to the great moments witnessed last night at a special screening of Iron Man. While the director was already scheduled to appear for a live commentary at Santa Monica’s Aero Theater, fans of Marvel’s first self-financed film were in for an even better treat when Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., showed up at the last moment.

Because of the fact that he had not recorded a commentary for the upcoming DVD, director Jon Favreau was quite exuberant over the fact that he was able to do so in person (also because he was not obligated to be politically correct).
