Zoolander vs. Jonah Hill for Sequel?

By  · Published on February 25th, 2010

If you’re going to make a sequel for Zoolander, you have to raise the stakes. That might prove to be difficult since the film is so schticky in the first place. Where do you go when Over The Top is already land you’ve conquered?

Or do you just stay content to do things as well as before?

It’s a question that Justin Theroux might be asking himself right about now as the Tropic Thunder, Iron Man 2 writer is setting up shop to work on a script for Zoolander 2.

According to Nikki Finke, the deal is set with Theroux also directing. He’s only directed once before in the decently interesting comedy Dedication (which also featured Christine Taylor).

The eyebrow-raising news is that the production might be looking to Jonah Hill to play the villain.

So maybe going over Over The Top might be possible.
