'Zoolander 2' director Ben Stiller says he "definitely" wants Cara Delevingne to appear in the much-anticipated sequel

Ben Stiller "definitely" wants Cara Delevingne to appear in 'Zoolander 2'.

Talks over the sequel to the 2001 hit comedy film have been going on since 2008 and in a new interview, Stiller has confirmed a script for the much-anticipated movie has been written - and the comedian is keen to cast the 22-year-old model-turned-actress.

Asked for an update on the project, Stiller told MTV: "There is a script, I won't deny there's a script, and there's been a reading of the script... but it hasn't yet been fully formulated."

And Stiller confirmed he "definitely would" like Delevingne - who was linked to the movie earlier this year - to feature in the film.

Meanwhile, Owen Wilson, who also appeared in the original 'Zoolander' movie and is expected to return for the sequel, has praised the quality of the script for the new film.

He said: "I have seen the script and it seems funny."

Stiller is set to direct the comedy sequel from a script which has had input from Justin Theroux, the screenwriter for films such as 'Tropic Thunder' and 'Iron Man 2'.

Will Ferrell is rumoured to be reprising his role from the original film.

Chaotic, scattershot, largely laugh-free sequel to the fondly-remembered 2001 original.
