Ben Stiller Says ‘Zoolander 2′ Script Is Finished, Waiting on Studio Reaction | /Film

Zoolander 2 script finished

Justin Theroux have finished a script and have handed it in to Paramount. They’re now just waiting to hear back.

I absolutely loved this film when it was released, but unfortunately not many people saw it. Like Office Space, it has become a cult classic, and a constant money-maker on home video.

I hope this gets made, but I have my doubts. Studios seem to be obsessed with making the next box office juggernaut, and are all but ignoring the “slow burn, word of mouth approach” that served them so well in the past.

Maybe they should change the title to “Zoolander 3-D” (that will probably get it on the fast track).

If you’re prepared to forgive Bill Murray for being the lone impediment to the progress of Ghostbusters 3, all you have to do is read his speech introducing Sofia Coppola at the National Board of Review Awards last night.

Did David Prowse Ruin ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ Two Years Before Release?

In 1978, David Prowse – the actor who wore the Darth Vader suit in the original Star Wars Trilogy – did a personal appearance in Berkeley, California which was covered by a local newspaper. At the event, Prowse answered questions about “Star Wars II” and “Star Wars III” and also just happened to mention the greatest spoiler in movie history – that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker’s father. In 1978. Two years before The Empire Strikes Back was released.

Who knows if he really knew Lucas’ plan for the film, but what we do know is, a secret like this could never be kept now.

Film Locations on Google Maps

Movie Locations Guide

Filmaps is a film locations website that also uses Google Maps to show the locations of movies. Filmaps want to help movie fans find the locations in their favourite films.

It is possible to search Filmaps for a particular film or it is possible to search a location to see which film was made there. For example, a search for the Eiffel Tower reveals that four films in the Filmaps database have used the famous landmark as a location.

Each film has its own Google Map.

Another great Google Maps mashup.
