It's been more than a decade since "Zoolander" strut its stuff in theaters, but a sequel to the 2001 flick is still a possibility, according to Justin Theroux.
Theroux, who played the evil DJ in the film, recently spoke to Vulture about the potential for "Zoolander 2," and while he stopped short of saying a sequel was definitively happening, he gave fans plenty of reason to be optimistic about the follow-up's chances.
"Yeah, we've got a script for the sequel, and we've just been in talks again," the actor told Vulture. "We're trying to sharpen it and hone it and, actually, I don't want to jinx anything, but it looks like it actually might be starting to get up and running."
The "Leftovers" star acknowledged that thanks to his newfound TV fame, it was difficult to coordinate his schedule with Ben Stiller and the rest of the "Zoolander" crew, but Theroux insisted that the sequel was a priority now that the show is on hiatus.
"[N]ow I'm back full-time to dedicate time toward doing it," he said. "I met with Ben [Stiller] a couple times when I was in New York doing 'The Leftovers,' and then I'm meeting again with him probably in September."
Originally, Theroux was the one who was set to sit in the director's chair for "Zoolander 2," though he told Vulture that that plan will likely change if "The Leftovers" gets picked up for another season. In that case, Stiller will helm the sequel instead, Theroux said.
So it sounds like we'll be seeing a lot more Blue Steel soon. This isn't the first time that fans' hopes have been raised over the possibility of a sequel, though, so keep that optimism cautious for now.
