Byline: AMY BELL
PENELOPE Cruz is lined up to be joining Ben Stiller in the cast of Zoolander 2. It was reported yesterday the Vanilla Sky actress, 40, is set to star in the follow-up to the 2001 hit comedy.
Will Ferrell previously revealed he will be reprising his role as villain, Jacobim Mugatu, while Owen Wilson is also rumoured to be returning as Hansel McDonald.
The script for the sequel is penned by Justin Theroux with an input from Stiller and has been in the works for years.
In an interview with Empire in 2011, Stiller said: "I don't want to give away too much, but it's basically Derek and Hansel 10 years later.
"Their lives have changed and they're not really relevant anymore. It's a new world for them."
