LOS ANGELES, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Paramount Pictures and actor Ben Stiller are working on a sequel to their 2001 cult-classic comedy "Zoolander," Deadline Hollywood said.

"Tropic Thunder" and "Iron Man 2" screenwriter Justin Theroux is penning the script to the second "Zoolander" with Stiller, and plans to direct the movie, the entertainment Web site said.

"Superbad" and "Night at the Museum: Battle at the Smithsonian" co-star Jonah Hill reportedly is in negotiations to play a villain in the movie, while Stiller will reprise his role as fashion model Derek Zoolander.
