Nikki Finke writes: "I've learned that Ben and Justin are working on the script together, and Theroux is going to Fashion Week in Paris to 'immerse himself on what is current in fashion.'" Of course, Owen Wilson is an essential part of the mix, but he hasn't made a deal yet. (Is there any chance he wouldn't? Could he possibly take on Marmaduke and not do this sequel?) And, while Hansel isn't in yet, it appears that Jonah Hill -- Mr. Appear in Every Comedy -- is in negotiations to play the villain, seemingly elbowing aside our beloved Mugatu.
But the big question is how well can a sequel do? The original came out only a few weeks after September 11, didn't do so well, and then exploded on DVD. Can anything stand in Derek Zoolander's way this time? And what do you think of the group thus far? I can't wait to see what Theroux brings to the table, but do we really need Jonah Hill in the mix? Gah. Sound off below!
