BEN STILLER AND OWEN WILSON JUST ANNOUNCED ‘ZOOLANDER 2’ ON VALENTINO’S RUNWAY
Obviously anyone in the audience of Valentino’s Paris Fashion Week show at the Jardin des Tuileries on Tuesday was into the storied label’s gorgeous gowns. But the show’s real treat came by way of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson — aka Derek Zoolander and Hansel — who owned the runway in a mix of custom suiting and pieces from Valentino’s fall 2015 collection.
In front of a front row that included Kate Mara, Cara Delevingne and Nicky Hilton, the duo’s runway strut officially signaled that the sequel to their ridiculous if not beloved 2001 fashion-world film is a go, with previous reports stating that Penelope Cruz has already signed on to co-star in the Justin Theroux-penned project. In November, THR reported that the Stiller-directed sequel would begin filming in Rome in February.
Paramount released a statement today saying that the film will hit theaters on Feb. 12, 2016, so we have plenty of time to dust off our best Blue Steel. In the meantime, we’re guessing this news will surpass llamas and white/blue dresses in matters of Internet importance.
