Ben Stiller confirms Night at the Museum 3; talks Zoolander 2 script

Ben Stiller confirms Night at the Museum 3; talks Zoolander 2 script
Clint


In a Q&A with The Hollywood Reporter – timed to coincide with the release of his new film “Tower Heist” – Ben Stiller dropped updates on the “Zoolander” and “Night at the Museum” sequels that are in the works. Stiller was also asked about the status of another “Fockers” movie.

Of “Night at the Museum 3″, Stiller says it’s only at the “idea” stage at the moment. Of another “Fockers” film, he says there’s no plans for a third sequel.

“Zoolander 2″ is the one that’s inching the closest to becoming a reality, by the sounds.

he’s “very proud” of the script, which was written last year (with his Tropic Thunder co-writer Justin Theroux). The story will pick up 10 years after the first film left off and, Derek’s “School For Kids Who Can’t Read Good” has been destroyed, leaving him in charge of its pupil. “There were maybe 20, 30 drafts,” Stiller remembers, “and at one time I walked away from it and they had somebody else rewrite it and they were going to do it without me, which was kind of ironic. Then it came back around.” He went through the same development hell with Tropic Thunder, the 2008 comedy about a group of actors in a faux boot camp who are forced to become real soldiers. “We had about eight, nine years when the script was around,” he recalls, before DreamWorks greenlighted the movie, which made $110 million at the domestic box office

Which are you most looking forward to, “Zoolander 2″ or “Night at the Museum 3″?
