Ben Stiller says he is open to starring in a sequel to his hit 2004 comedy 'Dodgeball'
Ben Stiller would be interested in a 'Dodgeball' sequel.
The actor, who played villainous dodgeball team leader White Goodman in the 2004 hit comedy, is open to reprising his role in a follow-up film alongside Vince Vaughn.
He said: "There is a script. I haven't read it, but I know it exists. I had so much fun on that first movie so I could see myself doing [a sequel] at some point."
The comedy, which also starred Stiller's wife Christine Taylor, was a big hit, grossing more than $160 million on a modest $20 million budget.
20th Century Fox has hired Clay Tarver to pen a script for the proposed movie.
The sequel will reportedly focus on Vaughn's Peter La Fleur and Stiller's Goodman putting their differences aside to tackle a more menacing threat to their respective businesses.
Stiller previously joked he had given up on winning an Oscar for Best Actor following 'Dodgeball'.
He quipped: "At the end of the day, after 'Dodgeball' was passed over for any nominations, I've given up on the Academy!"
