DODGEBALL Sequel on the Way

We're heard rumors of a "Dodgeball" sequel happening for some time, but now it looks like it may actually be happening as there's been some movement. The film was made on a $20 million budget and grossed more than $114 million domestically, so the desire for a sequel doesn't feel like a stretch.

The original focused on Vince Vaughn gathering a group of underdog dodgeball players, in an effort to beat Ben Stiller and his team, the neighboring gym that was taking over Vaughn's rundown gym slowly but surely.

Clay Tarver has been hired to pen the sequel script. Tarver's only produced credit to date is the 2001 thriller "Joy Ride", which he co-wrote with J.J. Abrams. The sequel is said to focus on Stiller and Vaughn, who must team up this time to fight a mutual threat.

Ben Stiller's Red Hour Films and Stuart Cornfeld with the help of Fox, will produce the film.

    I know I'm in the minority but I want Iron Giant to win over Lion King. I LOVE Iron Giant. Lion King is my favourite Disney animated movie but I balled like a baby watching Iron Giant. Also to the people complaining that no anime is moving on and it's all Toy Story... Miyazaki should've had a few films that moved on and Howl's Moving Castle is 1000x better than Frozen but there is a reason Pixar and Disney films are all popular, they're great and it's tough to get upset about upsets because these are all amazing films. And the Toy Story's are gonna do well because they should. There ratings on Rotten Tomatoes are 100, 100 and 99. My picks are... Iron Giant Toy Story Up Aladdin Toy Story 3 Monsters Inc. Beauty and the Beast Toy Story 2
