The great Derek Zoolander once said, "There's more to life than being really, really ridiculously good looking." Well, he may learn the true meaning of that in 'Zoolander 2.' In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Ben Stiller revealed some tidbits about the upcoming sequel, which will pick up ten years after the last movie left off. As Stiller tells it, the plot will focus on "Derek's 'School For Kids Who Can't Read Good,' [which] has been destroyed, leaving him in charge of its pupil." The story sounds promising, however, the movie almost happened sans Stiller. (Seriously.)
The actor admits that "at one time I walked away from it and they had somebody else rewrite it and they were going to do it without me, which was kind of ironic. Then it came back around." We can't imagine another 'Zoolander' without, well, Zoolander, so we're not sure how that would've worked out.

Stiller also says that there are plans for a new 'Night at the Museum' sequel. To read about Stiller's work in 'Tower Heist,' as well as how he got his start in the business, head over to THR.
