...and soon thereafter, Paramount announced that Zoolander 2 will hit theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.

So hot right now: Derek & Hansel blaze down the @MaisonValentino runway, #Zoolander2 announced. Coming Feb. 12, 2016.

The film has been rumored to have been in the works since 2008, but things got far more serious in recent months when Will Ferrell, who played Mugatu, talked about reprising his role and an upcoming script read-through in September, when Deadline reported Penelope Cruz was attached to co-star, and when Stiller's wife Christine Taylor signed on to reprise her roll as Matilda.

A rep for Paramount told BuzzFeed News that the actors appeared in the Valentino fashion show to announce the sequel, and was not intended to be a part of the movie itself.

But it totally should be because look at this blue steel action.

And this flawless strutting.

And let's hope this is the first sign of an upcoming high fashion cameo.

Seriously, the fucking hottest right now.
