In a report from the folks at Deadline, Penelope Cruz has signed on to join the cast of the much anticipated sequel Zoolander 2. Cruz will join star Ben Stiller who will reprise his role as the dimwitted male model Derek Zoolander.
Stiller will once again go behind the camera to direct as well as star. He will be working on a script from Justin Theroux.
While not confirmed, it has been rumored that Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson will also return to play the evil Mugatu and rival model Hansel, respectively.
No start date has been announced as of this writing.
With the recent box office success of the Dumb and Dumber sequel, this could lead the way for more “low-brow” comedies to get the green light for sequels.
If this bodes true and this leads to a Dodgeball sequel, count me.
