Stiller will reprise his role as the dumber-than-dirt supermodel Derek Zoolander. Will Ferrell informally confirmed he will be back as Mugatu. Owen Wilson and Stiller’s Christine Taylor are expected to be back. Actress Penelope Cruz is the newest addition to the cast for the sequel.

Justin Theroux will write and direct the sequel.
