Fans might have to hold out a little longer for their glimpse at the new "Zoolander" film. According to Owen Wilson's recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, "The script is still being tweaked."

He adds, "Ben [Stiller] and Justin Theroux have a script and it seems really funny. They are still working on it though."

Back in October, Theroux, who co-wrote the screenplay of "Tropic Thunder" with Stiller and is collaborating with the comedian on the "Zoolander 2" film, told MTV that a script was almost complete for the film and could hit theaters as soon as 2012.

"We start off with them in a pretty bad place," he said about the movie's plot. "They're about to ring 40's bell. They have to claw their way back into the fashion industry in some way or another."

Wilson is on a board to reprise his role as Hansel, the male model and former rival to Siller's Derek Zoolander. As for Will Farrell's nefarious Mugatu character returning, Theroux says, "Fingers crossed, anything is possible in Hollywood, but I think you're going to see Mugatu. We are planning on seeing Mugatu."

"There are a couple new villains that step onto the stage, "Theroux added, "which we are all very happy about. And yes, Jonah [Hill] is the inspiration for one of them."
