I remember asking Owen Wilson, about seven or eight years ago, about the chances of a “Zoolander” sequel; much to my surprise, he revealed that the script was already in the works, and that he and Ben Stiller were ready and raring to go.

Cut to some eight years later, still no sequel.

So what’s the go?

“Right now, it’s on hold”, Stiller ells Shortlist. “There’s a script we like, but I don’t want to force it, because people who love that movie really love it, so I want to make sure we do the sequel the right way. Mike Myers did it well with the Austin Powers movies – they were all funny, and very ‘of their time’. And Zoolander is ‘of its time’, too, so it’s about how we could bring it up to date, to the present day.”

What that means, adds Stiller, is no ‘Blue Steel.’

‘’He’s got a new look. I think part of the sequel will be about how the fashion world moves so quickly. So, the movie will begin at a time when the whole world has moved on from Derek and Hansel because they’re so ancient history. It’s about them having to reinvent themselves and try to become relevant again.’’

Also circling a photocopier out there…somewhere… is a script for a “Dodgeball” sequel.

‘’There is a script”, says Stiller, out stumping “The Secret Life of Walter Motty”.’’ I haven’t read it, but I know it exists. I had so much fun on that first movie, so I could see myself doing [a sequel] at some point.’’
