It’s refreshing to see these sorts of things from such intellectual juggernauts in the film world. Like when Stanley Kubrick’s list of his favorite movies was released and it included, conspicuously, White Men Can’t Jump among all the typical highbrow fare.

Not one to be outdone when it comes to pandering to the common man, Terrence Malick, when tasked with selecting four films for a summer series, selected Zoolander in addition to all the hoity-toity stuff. (That “stuff” includes The Lady Eve, Badlands, and Beat the Devil.)

Now, the fact that he selected this film doesn’t necesarily mean that he’s a Joe Six-Pack, but could just mean that he’s aware that Joe Six-Packs exist, and they don’t want to see those other three movies. So it might have been a pragmatic decision and less about how his tastes run.

But that’s not fun to think about. The headline “Pragmatic Malick Picks Zoolander to Appease Masses,” isn’t nearly as fun as “MALICK LOVES ZOOLANDER!!!!!!!!!!”

So that’s what we’ll decide until we get empirical evidence otherwise.

‘Zoolander 2′ Will Chart the Re-Invention of Derek Zoolander http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/zoolander-2-will-chart-the-re-invention-of-derek-zoolander/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/zoolander-2-will-chart-the-re-invention-of-derek-zoolander/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Last week the news of a Zoolander sequel sent waves of excitement through the TBS watching community. Ben Stiller is currently working on the script with director Justin Theroux and now, he has revealed a few details about the plot. "We have a new story idea that we feel excited about and we're going to try to go forward. The beginning of the movie is [set]... 10 years later, and Derek & Hansel are literally forgotten. Nobody even knows who they are, so they have to re-invent themselves." He goes on to add: "My wife really needs the work." Okay. So I went on to add that. He did, however, weigh in on Will Ferrell's inclusion: "If Will says yes, he definitely has to be a part of it. [pause] My dad really needs the work." Lies again. Screen Junkies really needs to rethink their policy of paying me by the word. *Editor's Note: We pay him in Monopoly money* (MTV)

Justin Theroux to Write and Direct ‘Zoolander 2′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/justin-theroux-to-write-and-direct-zoolander-2/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/justin-theroux-to-write-and-direct-zoolander-2/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Finally, the douchebags on MTV's Next will have some fresh quotes from a popular movie that they try to pass off as their own. It's been announced that Tropic Thunder and Iron Man 2 scribe Justin Theroux will write and direct a follow-up to Zoolander. In fact, Theroux is heading to Fashion Week in Paris to "immerse himself on what is current in fashion." He's absolutely NOT going for the wild parties, hot women, and mini-croissants stuffed with brie. Just in case you heard that was the real reason.Jonah Hill is in talks to play the villian and Owen Wilson will hopefully reprise his role as Hansel, though he has yet to commit. But Luke Wilson wanted me to mention that he's available, and will work for mini-croissants stuffed with anything. (Deadline Hollywood)
