(via The Film Stage)
There are only a few details to wrap our heads around right now, but we’re still reeling from Baumbach and Gerwig’s Mistress America from last year and will be keeping a close eye on this.
At this point, we know that production has just started, it follows an estranged NYC family getting ready an art retrospective of a patriarch, Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller star along with Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson, and Grace Van Patten, and the film’s current title Yen Din Ka Kissa translates to The Story of The Day in Hindi).
Again, it’s only a few details at this point, but we can see how this could have the makings for another great movie from a rare auteur in this era of comedy, Noah Baumbach.
Esquire UK Puts Derek Zoolander on Cover for March Issue
Back when Zoolander first came out back in 2001, social media hadn’t been created, much less caught on. Thus, creating the legend of Derek Zoolander was left to a montage in the beginning of the movie.
Now, 15 years later, Ben Stiller can actually go around in character as Derek and make it really seem like he’s the biggest male model that there ever was, is, and will be, especially since the fashion world seems game as well.
On top of this Esquire UK cover pictured above and an accompanying photo shoot video, Derek has done in-depth interviews with Vogue, walked the runway during a Valentino fashion show, and even had a whirlwind romance that lasted a few hours with other actual models like Cara Delevigne.
All in all, it’s a pretty great promotional campaign for Zoolander 2, which comes out next week.

International Trailer for “Zoolander 2″ Acquaints Us All with More Penelope Cruz
Though it’s an international trailer for Zoolander 2, it’s still in English, but features international movie star Penelope Cruz much more.

This Trailer for “Zoolander 2″ By Itself Is Worth The 14 Year Wait
Zoolander came out 2001 and was so damn funny.
Then, over a decade passed before there were serious whispers of a sequel coming about.
Finally, it will have been 15 years later when the sequel comes out on Feb. 12th, 2016.
We only had to wait 14 years for the trailer, that was just posted this morning, and it is seems to pick up where the original movie left off with how hysterical it is. There’s an unbelievable turn by Benedict Cumberbatch and perhaps Justin Bieber’s most redeeming role in a movie yet, not to mention what’s done to Kristen Wiig and, well, we’ll just stop talking and let you enjoy it already.

This definitely tops the other recent casting announcements.
Thus far, Zoolander 2 has Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson returning in their roles, but they also have Billy Zane who appeared in a cameo returning as well as the additions of Kristen Wiig and Penelope Cruz.
Now, Fred Armisen is in the mix according to Ben Stiller and his Instagram’s.
We don’t know what character he’s playing, but we can definitely see him perhaps as someone avenging the defeat of Mugatu or the son of the evil DJ.
IFC Developing Jake Fogelnest Father-Son Comedy From Ben Stiller’s Red Hour
Immediately, a Jake Fogelnest father-son comedy conjures up a conversation between father and his son about how sea punk isn’t a thing.
IFC is beefing up their new development slate and have added to it a comedy from Jake Fogelnest that centers on an author who is trying to keep up with the times and his son. The project is coming from under Ben Stiller’s Red Hour banner and given the way Fogelnest deals with the Internet on a daily basis on Twitter, Tumblr, etc., we can definitely see potential here.

(via The Hollywood Reporter)
It’ll be an hour long dramedy despite the title suggesting more of something satiric like David Wain’s They Came Together. Whatever the tone actually ends up being, we’ll be more likely to see it as MRC has ordered the series before getting a network on board.
“Zoolander 2” Is Happening and Will Start Shooting This Spring in Rome
For all the rumors and subsequent crossing of fingers by the rest of us for a sequel to Zoolander, Zoolander 2 is now officially set to shoot.
Over spring, Stiller and Blue Steel will return to Derek Zoolander, this time, in Rome with the blessing of Rome’s mayor Ignazio Marino.
How that will figure into Zoolander attempting to foil a plot to dominate the fashion industry/the world is unclear, but we’re more than happy that it’s happening. So, this means a release early next year hopefully?
Andre Hyland Does a Unique Interview With The Cast and Director of “Night at The Museum 3”
Most press in promotion of a movies consist of rote questions that cast members, directors, writers, etc. hate answering and, in many cases, the interviewers hate asking.
So, Andre Hyland is changing the press interview game with his unique style that is less about what is working with who and more about “custom” autographs on Hyland’s head, etc. Check his sit down with Ben Stiller, Rebel Wilson, Dan Stevens, Ricky Gervais, Shawn Levy, and Owen Wilson and you’ll agree that more interviews should be like it.
Watch Trailer for Noah Baunbach’s Latest “While We’re Young”
Noah Baumbach brought us the wonderful Frances Ha latest year and on Mar. 27th 2015, he’s got another wry, though, possibly his most playful, comedy with his latest film While We’re Young coming out.
Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts play a middle-aged couple that starts hanging out with a couple in their 20s, Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried,which should make for some nice cross generational humor.
Will Ferrell Confirms There’s a Script for Zoolander 2 and Mugatu Is Returning
While Justin Theroux and Ben Stiller have hinted that a sequel to Zoolander might be on the horizon soon, it has only been hints and rumors that we might get to see Blue Steel from Zoolander’s visage once more.
However, Will Ferrell has commented in a recent interview with JoBlo that a script is indeed in place that will have a read through soon and the villainous fashion designer Mugatu that he plays is set to return in the sequel.
That still leaves plenty to be do with actually getting cameras rolling, but, for now, this is great progress where there hasn’t been any for years.
Zoolander Evil DJ Justin Theroux Also Says Zoolander 2 Might Be Happening
In addition to Ben Stiller’s remarks on the legitimate possibility of a Zoolander sequel 13 years after original, Justin Theroux, who played the evil DJ that is one of Mugatu/Will Ferrell’s henchmen, gave a little more backing to a Zoolander 2 actually happening.
While being interviewed by Vulture for his role in The Leftovers, Theroux commented that there is actual work being done on a script for the sequel and scheduling for everyone that would be involved has been an issue.
Hopefully, we will get to see the progress of The Derek Zoolander School for Kids Who Can’t Read Good and Want to Do Other Good Stuff Too sometime in the next year or so.
