Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson just shocked onlookers at Paris Fashion Week. They showed up, in character, as Derek Zoolander and Hansel. Check out the video below:

This surprise appearance was made in conjunction with the announcement that Zoolander 2 is now officially happening. The story is still developing, as we don’t have news on who’s writing or directing the sequel to the 2001 comedy. Stiller helmed that film, which inspired a cult following in the years since it was released. Earlier today, on Instagram, Stiller commented:

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

Here are some photos from their sudden appearance on the runway:

As of this moment, there are no other details report in terms of casting or storyline, but folks are pointing to this quote from Stiller:

“In the fashion world, if you go away for a year, it’s changed — it just happens so quickly. I think the idea in the beginning of the movie is that it’s 10 years later, and Derek and Hansel are literally forgotten. Nobody remembers who they are, so they have to reinvent themselves.”

He said that to MTV, back in 2010. We’ll see if that idea is still in play when more becomes revealed. 

But there you have it, folks. Zoolander 2 is on.
