It’s all well and good that Ben Stiller works consistently as the prolific writer/director/actor/all-around funnyman that he’s made himself out to be. And while we’re happy about all of his upcoming projects like this week’s “The Watch” and next year’s “The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty,” the movie we’d really like to see him make sooner rather than later is that long-rumored/delayed sequel to “Zoolander.”
Stiller’s co-star Owen Wilson has mentioned a few intriguing details about the plot of the proposed film, which he’s affectionately dubbed “Twolander” or “Zoo 2,” in recent years, but since we haven’t heard anything from Derek himself lately, we had to get an update from Stiller when MTV News caught up with him during the “Watch” press day.
According to the film’s IMDb page, which we all know tend to include “creative interpretations” of facts every now and again, Stiller’s “Watch” co-star Jonah Hill is “rumored” to be involved with “Zoolander 2.” We asked Hill and Stiller for their thoughts on the subject and of course, the reliability of those IMDb “facts.”
“Sure [I’d do it], if he hires me,” Hill said.
“Yeah if we’re going to make Zoolander 2,” Stiller added. “This is what’s great about IMDb, it just takes information and wrangles it into some weird Internet thing. But yeah, we’re not even making the movie right now but I would do it with you,” he said to Hill, putting special emphasis on the “do it,” which sent the “21 Jump Street,” star into a fit of giggles.
Alright so someday when “Zoolander 2″ finally starts filming, Jonah Hill might do it with Stiller, Wilson and Co. Next up on our future movie fact-finding agenda was to find out whether or not Stiller’s hilarious and macho Spanish-speaking TV reporter from “Anchorman” will be featured in “Anchorman 2.”
“Oh, I have not been asked but I’m available,” Stiller said. “I was happy to be a part of [the first movie].”
