Zoolander Sequel Script Finished Says Ben Stiller

The script for the sequel to the 2001 comedy Zoolander is finished, according to Ben Stiller. "We just finished the script and hopefully we're gonna put it all together to shoot it next year," Stiller told HitFix.
Stiller confirmed in March that a Zoolander sequel was in the writing stages. He is working with actor/screenwriter Justin Theroux (who will also direct). At the time, Stiller said the sequel would find dim supermodel Zoolander, and fellow model and best friend Hansel (Owen Wilson) ten years older and attempting to re-establish themselves in the fashion world.
In March, Stiller also said that Will Ferrell's character Mugatu "definitely has to be a part" of a Zoolander sequel, but couldn't confirm Ferrell's return, only revealing that the actor will "hopefully" reprise his role.
Wilson, however, indicated that he would be returning. "I think there's a really good script and I think we're going to do it," said Wilson.
As for other potential cast members, actor Jonah Hill revealed last month that Stiller and Theroux had approached him about playing a role, and said he'd "love to be a part of it."
