"I don't want to give away too much, but it's basically Derek and Hansel 10 years later — though the last movie ended on a happy note, a lot of things have happened in the meantime," Stiller added in the interview with Empire. "Their lives have changed, and they're not really relevant anymore. It's a new world for them."
