Justin Theroux writing Zoolander 2


25th February 2010

Hey, that rhymes! Earth to Meekus!

I'm sticking my neck out on this one: Zoolander is one of the funniest movies ever made. I could give a hundred reasons why, but here are the first things to come to mind; Blue Steel; gasoline fight; a male model walk-off adjudicated by David Bowie; a centre for ants?; Will Ferrell's haircut; breakdance fighting; Billy Zane; and the line, "You can 'Derelict' my balls, cap-i-tan." Just writing those made me laugh.

This should be one of those rare occasions, then, when a comedy sequel is welcomed with open arms. Nikki Finke is reporting that Justin Theroux - the speccy dude from Mulholland Drive and the writer of Tropic Thunder and Iron Man 2 - has been charged with writing the follow-up. He also played 'Evil DJ' in the 2001 original, so he knows his stuff.

Finke also reports that Jonah Hill (so hot right now) is in talks to play the movie's villain, while Owen Wilson may return as really, really, really, ridiculously good-looking compadre Hansel. Why just maybe? Because he's been chilling with spider-monkeys with his whole crew in St. Bart's for a month. Changed his whole perspective on shit.

Oh yeah, and this clip, too. (*points below*)
