Within the past year there have been many rumors swirling around the possibility of fans finally receiving a sequel to Ben Stiller’s big hit; Zoolander. The film about male models was released back in 2001 where it found love as a fun and easygoing comedy with solid performances from Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell.
New information has come out of Bad Taste, an Italian website, stating that the Mayor of Rome has announced that the Zoolander sequel will be shooting in the city for 12 weeks starting this upcoming Spring with plans for a 2016 release.
While the film is still not 100% confirmed, this is interesting evidence supporting the case. It will be interesting to see the direction Zoolander 2 takes, if it does come out, how good it will be. It’s been over ten years since the release of the first film which has become a quotable cult classic that many people love. It would be awful to see a return to the series flop and destroy the brilliance of the original similarly to Dumb and Dumber, which tried to make a comeback last year.
