The obvious highlight of Paris Fashion Week so far? The sight of veteran male model — and signature look Blue Steel innovator — Derek Zoolander triumphantly return to the runway for Valentino, sporking a custom Night Butterflies brocade suit and overcoat. OK, not really. But Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson did make a surprise appearance in Paris, using the catwalk as a means to cleverly announce that a sequel to the 2001 comedy "Zoolander" is officially in happening. The long-awaited follow-up has been talked up for years, with Stiller discussing plot ideas interviews as far back as 2010. Justin Theroux reportedly wrote the script, with Penelope Cruz on board to star alongside Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell.
Paramount will bring "Zoolander 2" to theaters February 12, 2016.
They even got Vogue editor Anna Wintour in on the action:
