Jennifer Aniston is reportedly after a role in the sequel to Zoolander.
Jennifer’s fiancé Justin Theroux was slated to helm the film, a follow up to the 2001 comedy classic, four years ago but nothing has come of it as yet.
There’s even talk that Justin could actually be bringing the film to a new audience, by producing a Broadway musical version of the story. The original feature followed a dim male model, played by Ben Stiller, as he had to overcome an evil plot to kill the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
“If a second Zoolander film gets made soon, Jennifer wants to be in it,” a source told RadarOnline.
“But if a Zoolander musical gets off the ground instead, Jen wants to make money off of it. She’s finally coming around to the idea of her and Justin teaming up on projects, because she was stubborn about it for a while, but it was actually the same situation when she was with former husband Brad [Pitt]. It took her a couple of years to see the good sense in collaborating with him, too.”
Justin had a small role in the first movie, which also starred comedy giants Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson.
While the project is yet to get off the ground, Justin is eager to expand his skills in the industry and theatre is an area that is of strong interest to the Wanderlust actor.
“Justin wants to write a proper Broadway show, and has been playing with some ideas, thanks to Jen’s encouragement.
“He’s worked on the idea of Zoolander as a stage musical and coming up with some funny concepts that have made Jen an even bigger fan of his work.
“Justin’s big future showbiz plans might involve Jen more than initially believed,” the source added.
