Zoolander 2 Web Series Announced; Ben Stiller Back As Blue Steel

Zoolander 2 is set to hit theaters in 2012, according to Current TV and a web series is in the works as well. Ben Stiller's Red Hour Films is planning to release an animated Zoolander series, as part of a 2-year deal struck with paramount on Wednesday.

Last weekend I watched Zoolander for something like the 35th time (actually I watched it twice), and I thought to myself, “Man, I wish there was a Zoolander sequel”. Well, ladies and gents, it looks like my prayers have been answered. Zoolander 2 is set to hit theaters in 2012, according to Current TV and a web series is in the works as well. Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Films is planning to release an animated Zoolander series, as part of a 2-year deal struck with paramount on Wednesday.

According to Dave Itzkoff of The New York Times, the 2-year Paramount deal will include the animated Zoolander series, as well as another web series called Billy Glimmer: Entertainer of the Century. In Billy Glimmer, Ben Stiller will play a Las Vegas voice impersonator. Stiller is hoping to get Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, and other actors from the original movie to do the voices for their characters in the animated series.
