‘Zoolander 2’: Kanye West In Talks To Star
As if we weren’t excited enough already for more smoldering Zoolander action.
Kanye, best known for his musical stylings and his wife Kim Kardashian, might be heading in a different career direction, according to The Sun. If Kanye does land the role, he has original film star Will Ferrell to thank!
“Kanye is friends with Will and appeared briefly in Anchorman 2 but he wanted to be in Zoolander 2 even more,” said a source. More intriguing yet, Kanye might get some onscreen company from Kim!
As to whether Mrs. West will appear alongside Kanye, the sourced added that it is “very likely.” Kanye and Kim smoldering together on screen? Too much.
Strike A Pose, Kanye
News first broke that a Zoolander followup would be released a whopping 15 years after the original at Paris Fashion Week. During the Valentino runway show, two, uh, surprising models took to the catwalk— and turned quite a few heads!
The film, which will hit theaters in February, 2016, will follow Zoolander and his nemesis turned friend, Hansel, as they try to reinvent themselves in the modeling world. Production on the film has already begun, with Ben returning to the role of director and with a script written by Justin Theroux.
