Valentino’s runway show at the recent Paris Fashion Week was stirred by the appearance of models Derek and Hansel, otherwise known as Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, the legendary pair from the movie “Zoolander.” Their stunt coincides with the announcement of the sequel “Zoolander 2” and model Cara Delevingne may reportedly take part in it. Read on for more.
VH1 caught the post of Delevingne on her Instagram account, which shows the model posing with the stars of “Zoolander 2” on the night of the Valentino show. According to the report, her caption hints that she may be part of the upcoming movie, which should not be a problem since she’s already experienced in both industries. While starting out as a model, Delavigne has been branching out to acting lately, snagging roles in coveted productions like “Suicide Squad,” “Pan” and “Paper Towns.”
The speculation of Delevingne’s participation was further boosted by her sister’s repost of the Instagram pic, with Poppy also posting a cryptic caption.
Meanwhile, as announced by Paramount, “Zoolander 2” is slated for a February 2016 release with no less than Jennifer Aniston’s fiancé, Justin Theroux, tasked to write the script. The follow up movie will have Stiller and Wilson reprising their famous characters, which first broke box office records in 2001, and this time as they will try to reclaim their spot in the world of modelling.
Back in 2011, Stiller, who will be directing the movie again, came up with this plot for the sequel:
“It’s ten years later and most of it is set in Europe… it’s basically Derek and Hansel… though the last movie ended on a happy note a lot of things have happened in the meantime. Their lives have changed and they’re not really relevant anymore. It’s a new world for them“
Deadline reports that Will Ferrell is in talks to reprise his role as the villain Mugato, while Penelope Cruz has been signed to the film since Nov. 2014.
So, how about that? Are you looking forward to watching Cara Delevingne in “Zoolander 2” with Stiller, Wilson, Cruz and possibly Ferrel?
