Ben Stiller - Ben Stiller Promises Zoolander Sequel Will Be Better

Ben Stiller has promised the 'Zoolander' sequel will be "bigger and better" than the original.

The comic actor is set to reprise his role as clueless supermodel Derek Zoolander in a new movie and has promised fans of the first film won't be disappointed.

He said: "We're shooting the 'Zoolander' sequel at the moment. Derek's going to be back bigger and better than before - no catwalk is safe."

Ben recently revealed the sequel to the 2001 movie will be set in Europe 10 years after the original and will see his character and Owen Wilson's alter ego Hansel no longer relevant on the fashion scene.

He said: "Where it's at is we've completed the script, Justin Theroux and I, and handed it into the studio.

"Now the studio has the script and we're at that point where we're waiting to see what they want to do. It's ten years later and most of it is set in Europe.

"I don't want to give away too much, but it's basically Derek and Hansel ten years later - though the last movie ended on a happy note a lot of things have happened in the meantime. Their lives have changed and they're not really relevant anymore. It's a new world for them."

Will Ferrell will also return to the series as baddie Jacobim Mugatu.
