Ben Stiller Confirms Zoolander Sequel Ben Stiller has confirmed he is working on a sequel to his 2001 comedy hit Zoolander. Stiller, who played dim-witted male model Derek Zoolander in the original movie, is in talks to get production rolling on a follow-up and is currently looking at scripts. The comedian insists he has always wanted to complete the story and is delighted that Zoolander 2 is finally close to being made. He says, “I’ve been trying to get Zoolander 2 together and we’ve had a few scripts. I feel that is the sequel I really would like to do some day because I like the original and I would make sure it was something new and worthy of it first.” Stiller also recently confirmed he is planning a third installment of his successful Meet The Parents franchise, which will see him reunite with Robert De Niro.
