Around a month or two ago there were rumors that Zoolander 2 was going to start filming soon; however, the information was still unclear and not officially confirmed because the only source was an Italian mayor announcing that they would be using the city.
It looks like it was all true and we will be getting Zoolander 2 in the near future because Owen Wilson was dressed in a full Hansel outfit strutting down the Valentino runway in Italy with Ben Stiller back as Zoolander as well.
Zoolander is a classic comedy, but it came out a decade ago back in 2001. Is it too late for these actors to be releasing a sequel? Many people want Zoolander 2, myself included, but I’m extremely scared it’s going to be along the lines of Dumb and Dumber To that is just an unfunny cash crab by the actors because they knew people would give it a chance. I have higher hopes for Z2 compared to other sequels that have come out recently but we’ll just have to wait and see.
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.
