Back in late 2010, rumours surfaced regarding a possible Zoolander animation being in the works. Since then things seemed to have gone a bit quiet.
Just yesterday though, Ben Stiller tweeted that an animated web series was being now considered – along with link to a cartoon still (left).
Whether this means it’s only going to be released online is seemingly unknown at the moment – although one hopes that’ll change, once Stiller lets a bit more info slip.
As for a sequel to the succesful and chucklesome Zoolander film, Stiller confirmed way back in Spring 2010 that his production company were, “…in the process of getting a script written. It’s in the early stages, but it’s gonna happen. We’ve been trying for years to… figure it out. It’ll have input from all the… ‘Zoolander’ people. It’s just… taken awhile.”
So is 2012 the year the sequel finally drops? Who knows, but as a shooting schedule isn’t in place it looks unlikely. The good news however, is that a script has now been completed with Stiller’s Tropic Thunder co-writer Justin Theroux, and Stiller is clearly still intent on reviving the character.
Here’s hoping we all hear something more concrete in 2012.
