Ben Stiller has given the “Zoolander” cult devotees around the world a small glimmer of hope. We may see the idiot male model with his blue steel swagger sometime soon. In an Internet website interview, Stiller said, “We have a script, as we’ve had for a little while, and it’s not quite coming together right now but I hope it does. I would like to do it at some point in the future.”

Like most things during these tough economic times, Paramount has decided it has budgetary issues with the script and the project stalled just as soon as it began.
