Male model Derek Zoolander might not be the only beloved Ben Stiller character that’s ready for round two.
Fitness guru and dodgeball enthusiast White Goodman, Stiller’s character in 2004's “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story,” also has plans to head back to the big screen, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Stiller’s production company, Red Hour Films, and Fox have tapped Clay Tarver (“Joy Ride”) to pen the script for the anticipated sequel, which will reportedly see rivals White Goodman and Peter La Fleur (Vince Vaughn) team up to battle an even greater dodgeball force.
Frankly, as long as the follow-up promises an updated instructional film (in memory of dodgeball legend Patches O'Houlihan), we’re on board.
“Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story,” which also stars Stiller’s wife Christine Taylor, grossed more than $114 million at the domestic box office.
