The sports comedy DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story is finally getting a sequel, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn are expect to return to reprise their roles.

In the first movie, Vaughn stars as Peter LaFleur, the owner of a small gym who's trying to prevent his gym from being taken over by a larger, more successful gym owned by Ben Stiller's White Goodman. In order to get the funds need to save his gym, he forms a team to enter a Las Vegas dodgeball tournament for the $50K prize money.

In the sequel, Stiller and Vaughn will have to team up to take on a more threatening foe. Obviously, there will be more dodgeball action.

Clay Tarver, who has one produced screenplay in the 2001 thriller Joy Ride, is writing the script. According to THR, Tarver "has spent much of his time in the comedy world and has a familiarity with niche, subculture activities" so he's not exactly an out-of-left-field hire.
