Have you been longing for more ‘Dodgeball?” Apparently someone over at Fox thought it was necessary, so ‘Dodgeball 2′ is in the works!
The 2004 film starred Vince Vaughn as the slacker owner of rundown gym who gathers a group of misfits into a dodgeball tournament in order to defeat an encroaching corporate gym run by Ben Stiller.
The movie grossed more than $114 million domestically on a reported budget of $20 million.
While Fox, Vaughn and Stiller have long mulled the idea of a sequel, little action had been taken. It was even a joke on an episode of Ricky Gervais’ Extras in which Stiller guest-starred.
Now the sequel will focus on Vaughn and Stiller forced to team up to fight an even bigger threat, according to sources.
Hopefully this is a good thing. I think Ben Stiller has entered a phase in his career where he’s just going to start working on sequels. Rumor has it he’s also working on the sequel to ‘Zoolander.’
