Rumors have been going around about a Zoolander sequel lately, thirteen years after the original. Hard to say what Hansel, Mugatu, Derek and the gang could be up to these days. But for now, a blast from the past -- eight facts about Zoolander.
Here's a fun one: bizarro novelist Brett Easton Ellis (whose Twitter feed alone could probably get him committed for a 72-hour psych eval.) sued Ben Stiller, claiming he stole the Zoolander concept from Ellis'1998 novel, Glamorama. The book's plotline involved a model who turned terrorist. The case never made it to court, as the two camps reached a settlement. Somehow I think Stiller got ripped off in that exchange.
