Vince Vaughn is making a return to Average Joe’s and Dodgeball.

Deadline is reporting that a sequel to the hit 2004 comedy, Dodgeball is in the works at 20th Century Studios. Jordan VanDina is writing the script with Vaughn returning to star.

Rawson Marshall Thurber wrote and directed the original film, but it’s unknown if they’ll be involved with this sequel. The other uncertainty is who will star in the film alongside Vaughn. The original film starred Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Justin Long, Christine Taylor, Stephen Root, Alan Tudyk, Joel David Moore, Chris Williams, Missi Pyle, Gary Cole, Jason Bateman, and the late Rip Torn.

The original grossed $168 million against a $20 million budget and told the underdog story of Average Joe’s Gym versus the corporate GloboGym. The movie centered around a $50,000 dodgeball tournament in Las Vegas that was do-or-die for Pete LaFleur (Vaughn) to keep his gym open.

The only details known about the sequel at this time are that it continues the story of Vaughn’s prize-winning gym, Average Joe’s. The basis for VanDina’s script is an idea from Vince Vaughn,

Thurber previously talked about a sequel to Dodgeball with Deadline in 2021.

“You know what — never say never. I never thought about Dodgeball as a series, but that actually might be fun,” he said. “I’m really proud of Dodgeball — it’s my first film and something people still really like it seems. I would say never say never, and it would have to be the right take on it. But yeah, maybe.”

We’ll keep you updated on this as it develops.
