Zoolander Sequel Axed?

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Zoolander Sequel Axed?

Ben Stiller has sparked rumours his Zoolander sequel is set to be shelved – after hinting film studio bosses are refusing to finance the follow-up.

Stiller, who starred in and directed the hit 2001 movie, recently announced plans to bring the comedy back to the big screen for a second installment, eyeing a 2012 release.

But now the actor has suggested the film, in which he plays title character Derek Zoolander, is struggling to secure financing from executives at Paramount.



The news comes just days after director Adam McKay revealed that plans to revive Will Ferrell’s 2004 film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy for a sequel had been scrapped after Paramount bosses refused to fund the project. In a cryptic message on his Twitter.com page, Stiller writes, “Ron Burgundy and Derek Zoolander looking to appear in sequels. Both men destitute, without means or intellect to fund their own comebacks.”
