    3 reasons a sequel to 'Zoolander' is a really, really, ridiculously good thing

    The sequel to 2001’s Zoolander has been developing for a really, really, ridiculously long time but it seems that it might finally be gaining momentum, according to Will Ferrell.

    “We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, and Mugatu is a part of it,” Ferrell told The Hollywood Reporter.

    Ferrell played the villainous fashion designer Jacobim Mugatu in the first film. You may recall he invented the piano key necktie.

    The sad reality is that sequels are seldom a good idea, see: Caddyshack II, Blues Brothers 2000, The Hangover Part II, and every Star Wars film after 1983. Sequels, like comic book movies, continue to get made because a known entity, with a devoted fan base, and the promise of profit is simply irresistible.

    History tells us a second Zoolander is a terrible idea. History is wrong.

    Zoolander is going to be great, and this is why.

    1. Ben Stiller is directing. Ben Stiller directs good movies.
    In addition to taking the helm of the first Zoolander, Stiller also was behind Reality Bites, The Cable Guy and Tropic Thunder. Paired once more with writer Justin Theroux (who cowrote Tropic Thunder with Stiller), Stiller is aligning himself with the people who have helped him make great movies before.

    2. The original cast is returning.
    Do you know why Caddyshack II was terrible? There was no one from Caddyshack left. If you take out Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, and Bill Murray, the remaining footage of Caddyshack involves a floating Baby Ruth bar. The Zoolander sequel is making no such mistake. Stiller and Ferrell are back, and Owen Wilson is returning. The key three ingredients which made the first film work are all involved.

    3. It’s been 13 years in the making.
    The Zoolander sequel has been batted around for the better part of a decade, aging like fine wine.

    It wasn’t going to happen, and then it was, and then it wasn’t again. The truth is, this movie could have never been made and fans wouldn’t have minded.

    The fact that Stiller and Co. continued to keep the idea alive for 13 years speaks to how passionate they feel about it. You’re not going to spend 13 years keeping a project afloat just for fun.

    All of the elements to make the second Zoolander film successful are in place. Sure, the potential of failure still exists, and there is also that belief of some aboriginal tribes that the camera steals a piece of the actor’s soul.

    But how many abodiginals made a sequel to a movie about male modeling? Think about that.

    the first one sucked too, in the traditional sense, like "freddy got fingered", absurdist comedy... not even a semblance of a script, but I still laughed my ass off. holding out hope.

    I don't have high hopes for this.

    Why not? Hollywood came up with "Deuce Bigalow:European Gigolo" and Grease 2.

    If you look at it as, "It's a stiller movie", Zoolander was pretty funny. Dodgeball was too as were all the Museum movies. He's a douchebag of a human but he does make some laugh moments.

    It was an idea that could hold up an SNL skit stretched into movie length. No thanks.

    It's good that Stiller, Ferrell and Wilson are on board. But how does any discussion of original Zoolander cast members not include at least a passing mention of this one?: :drool::flowers:

    This A list comedy actor was having a party at his house. The intercom system was on so music could be listened to throughout the house. Unfortunately for our actor the music stopped just as he was berating his B- list actress wife for embarrassing him in front of his friends. He also called her worthless. Nice huh?

    As far as I'm concerned this movie should and WILL be called "Zoo Za Zoolander" when I get through promoting it.

    Ugh. I barely made it a half hour into the original. No way I'm bothering with this POS.

    I think I read another one recently about Christine Taylor... like they said when she attends parties, if anybody talks to her, she is constantly scanning the crowd, looking for somebody better to talk to!

    That's the prototype ol BBD broad, I can spot that type in real life pretty easily and IMMEDIATELY they're dead to me. BethCD Ostroskitis it's being called.

    See if you can trudge up that CDAN story and post it.
