We're not sure if this is a viral stunt or if production is already underway on Zoolander 2, but over in Paris, during Fashion Week, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson just popped up at the end of the Valentino show. Images and videos started pouring out straight from the event on social media, showing Zoolander and Hansel all dressed up and strutting down the catwalk. This just gets me infinitely more excited to see this sequel, which will be about 15 years old when all is said and done. Will Ferrell is supposed to be back as Mugatu, and we can't wait to see what these male models have been doing for over a decade now. Look!
UPDATE: Paramount Pictures also announced Zoolander 2 will arrive on February 12th, 2016:

Zoolander 2 is written and directed by Justin Theroux (writer of Tropic Thunder, director of Dedication). Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson reprise their roles as male models Derek Zoolander and Hansel respectively in a story that has been said to take place after just as many years have passed since the original film was released in 2000. Will Ferrell will also return as Mugatu in some capacity along with Christine Taylor as Matilda. In addition, Penelope Cruz has also signed on for a role as a new character. Paramount Pictures has set the comedy sequel for release on February 12th, 2016, and it seems production is now underway.
