Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson confirm Zoolander 2 release date with epic Paris Fashion Week walk off

Zoolander and Hansel hit the catwalk for Valentino to reveal that the film will be released in February 2016

There were two really, really ridiculously good looking additions to the Valentino Paris Fashion Week lineup this afternoon and nobody saw them coming.


Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson took to the catwalk during the designer’s show to confirm that the much anticipated Zoolander sequel will be released next February.

Fans have been waiting 14 years for a follow up to the 2001 comedy so there’s no doubt that they’ll be delighted to hear that Derek and Hansel are getting back to business.


Apparently Derek and Hansel have come to terms on #Zoolander2 ?

They may have had no trouble posing for pictures together backstage but the fashion rivals had an almighty walk off on the Valentino runway, much to the delight of those sitting in the front row.

Now we already knew Zoolander 2 was in the works but we had a lot of unanswered questions about the project, including when and if it would ever get off the ground.

The last time we checked in with the project Penelope Cruz had apparently signed on and it was revealed that Stiller would be directing the film himself. Back in 2010 he told MTV that any sequel would be set 10 years in the future and now it looks as though we won’t be waiting too long to find out if he was telling the truth.


What we do know for sure is that we’ll get all the answers we’ve been waiting for on February 12th 2016 when Zoolander 2 struts into cinemas.
