Blue Steel. There, I just wanted to get that out of the way first. Moving on, Nikki Finke over at Deadline is breaking news of Zoolander 2. It’ll be written and directed by man with the most severe widow’s peak in Hollywood, Justin Theroux. (If he dies before commencement of principal photography, maybe they can get Jude Law.) Ben Stiller and Justin previously collaborated on Tropic Thunder, and that movie is really, really funny, so hopes are high (at my desk) that they’ll repeat. Jonah Hill is currently in negotiations to play the film’s villain.
The original Zoolander, released in 2001, is a lawsuit-worthy rip-off of the Bret Easton Ellis‘s masterpiece Glamorama. Come on, Ben. Throw Bret a couple lines. Either put him in the movie or buy him some coke.
