Los Angeles: Model Cara Delevingne may star in the upcoming 'Zoolander' follow-up alongside Ben Stiller.

The 22-year-old model is said to be negotiating with the movies' star, Stiller, over the female lead in the sequel, which is set to go into production in just a few months, reports contactmusic.com.

"Ben and producers want a big-name model for the film and they need to be jokers and full of natural comedy,” a source told The Sun newspaper.

"They've been closely following Cara and her antics during the past couple of years. They are still working out what the exact role will be but it's likely to include a lot of goofing around,” the source added.
