Zoolander 2 is happening, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson walked the runway as Derek Zoolander and Hansel at the Maison Valentino show, officially announcing the sequel to their beloved 2001 comedy, Zoolander. According to a tweet from Paramount Pictures, the film will see release on February 12th, 2016.

Stiller confirmed the news on Instagram, where he posted a photo of himself and Wilson with the caption, “Apparently Derek and Hansel have come to terms on #Zoolander 2.” Another Instagram picture from Valentino showed the pair primping next to Anna Wintour, and even the notoriously staid Vogue editor-in-chief couldn’t keep from cracking the slightest smile.
While specific plot details are scarce, Zoolander 2 will likely find Derek and Hansel trying to return to the modeling world after a long absence. In a 2010 interview with MTV, Stiller said, “In the fashion world, if you go away for a year, it’s changed — it just happens so quickly. I think the idea in the beginning of the movie is that it’s 10 years later, and Derek and Hansel are literally forgotten. Nobody remembers who they are, so they have to reinvent themselves.”
