It looks like we’ll be seeing more White Goodman, Ben Stiller’s character in 2004’s Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, in the future. It’s about damn time. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox and Stiller’s production company, Red Hour Films, have tapped Clay Tarver to pen the script for the sequel, which will reportedly see rivals Goodman and Peter La Fleur (Vince Vaughn) team up to battle an even greater force.

For those of you who don’t know who Clay Tarver is, here’s some background info:

  • He co-wrote with J.J. Abrams the 2001 thriller Joy Ride
  • He is working on Quantum Hoops, which centers on a nerdy basketball team at Caltech, set up Disney and also being produced by Red Hour
  • He wrote Men Making Music, about the world of competitive barbershop quartets, also at Disney and being produced by Abrams
  • He worked with Mike Judge on Meat in the Freezer, a satire about hunting for HBO Films
  • He also recently wrote the Jack Black and Shine-produced comedy pilot for Showtime titled The Deep Cuts

Here’s hoping that we hear more info on what is, in my humble opinion, one of the best comedies in the past decade and one of Stiller’s best.

“Oh, I don’t think I’m a lot dumber than you thought that I think that I thought that I was once.”
