Ben Stiller is finally speaking out about what took him so long to put out Zoolander’s long awaited sequel.
It’s been 10 years since he taught us how to “Blue Steel.”
In a recent interview with Parade magazine, when asked about the upcoming sequel Ben explains that the passing of a friend caused the delay;
“We’ve been working on it on and off over the last six or seven years. The biggest hurdle for me personally was that Drake Sather, who created the character, passed away. He was a good friend and the lump for me was it’s hard to imagine doing it without him.”
But now Stiller is ready to go, adding;
“Now my buddy, Justin Theroux, has committed to directing and writing it. So I’m excited and I think it’s going to happen. I want to be able to do something that lives up to the first one. That’s the challenge.”
We think it will! Do you?
