The original 2001 film about a dimwitted male super-model turned wannabe spy earned $60.8 million worldwide. The beginning of the movie is set 10 years later, and Derek & Hansel are literally forgotten. Nobody even knows who they are, so they have to re-invent themselves. Stiller said that Will Ferrell’s Mugatu would be back, if the actor is up for it. “If Will says yes, he definitely has to be a part of it. To me, Mugatu is one of the classic screen villains of all time.”
Fourteen years after the original, which is eons in fashion and film years, the catwalk comrades have been dubbed “Old” and “Lame”, coming up against the likes of All, the androgynous supermodel du jour, played by a wig-and-fur-wearing Benedict Cumberbatch.
Their last-season status aside, Zoolander and Hansel are enlisted by an Interpol agent, who’s hot, so Hansel immediately trusts her, to help solve the murders of the world’s most beautiful people, including Demi Lovato, Usher, Justin Bieber, Lenny Kravitz and Miley Cyrus, all of whom died with Zoolander’s signature look on their faces (Blue Steel).
