Is It Necessary for Me to Drink My Own Urine? Dodgeball Sequel in the Works

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | April 23, 2013 | Comments ()


The movie that helped to launch the movie career of Justin Long, the movie that got both Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller through rough career patches, the movie that helped to relaunch the career of Jason Bateman, the movie that was a forerunner to the Chuck Norris memes, and the movie that gave us Steve the f***king Pirate is getting a sequel.


However, the person behind all the brilliant lines in Dodgeball, writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber, does not seem to be involved. Ben Stiller has hired some guy named Clay Tarver to pen the screenplay, which will apparently involved Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn's characters taking on a bad guy in a dodgeball tournament.

I'm not necessarily against a Dodgeball sequel, but I think if you're going to do one, you need to bring back the wordsmith behind "I don't think I'm a lot dumber than you thought that I think I was once."

If Steve the Pirate doesn't return, however, I will throw a wrench at someone's head.

    I don't think that I can get behind this. Dodgeball is just so delightful. A sequel makes me very nervous. Especially without the original writer.

  • Green Lantern

    I'm inclined to agree. LOVED "Dodgeball", and I don't wanna hate "Dodgeball 2".

  • Steph

    I don't have anything against Justin Long. But there's something about watching him take a wrench to the face that never fails to crack me up.

  • wsapnin

    Wait....there was a guy in that movie that was a pirate?

  • MrsAtaxxia

    He was a leaf on the wind.

  • jollies

    How could I have not realized Wash and Steve the Pirate were played by the same guy? Where was my brain when it was supposed to be making these types of connections? A quick search also shows he was one of the main sidekicks in A Kights Tale and the voice of Sonny in I, Robot. I'm having trouble getting my head around that last thing.

    In the wsapnin Home for Crazy People, this movie is quoted on a daily basis. I have actually been in public and told one of my kids that he/she is "as useless as a poopie flavored lollipop." Love the stares I get!

  • wsapnin

    They often respond with "Cram it in your cram hole!"

  • I'm cool with it as long as there is more of Jason Bateman working at ESPN 8 "The Ocho"

  • BlackRabbit

    Will Chuck Norris return? Cliffhanger!

  • lowercase_ryan

    Needs another Lance cameo. Maybe a scene where he catches Vince trying to cheat, shrugs his shoulders and walks away. Something along those lines.

    Awww...I guess that means we'll have to wait longer on the latest Stiller/De Niro installment "Focking A", where now this time Jack decided that Greg's kids must have cheated their way into a prestigious high school since there's no way any offspring of Greg could be so smart. Merry mix-ups aplenty go down when Jack accidentally has his grandchildren shipped off to Guantanamo Bay and decides to cover his own ass by fabricating a phony pharmaceutical smuggling ring and frame Greg's position as a nurse as being the proof. Amusement is had by all as we cut back and forth between detention centers watching scenes of both Greg and his kids getting cavity searches and being horrified when it does not involve a dentist. Meanwhile Jack is trying to bring back Greg and his grandchildren without getting on the shit-list of his wife, daughter and in-laws but only makes thing work as he discovers he has early stage dementia and cannot remember the proper passwords to have them set free. Finally he just says "Fock It!" and runs away to Costa Rica with Angela Bassett. Release date has been pushed back to Focktember of 20-Fockteen.

    Shut the fock up before you jinx some shit.

  • Mrcreosote

    Not for all the unicorns in Marsha Brady's universe. No one makes me bleed my own blood.

  • MrsAtaxxia

    Bold move Cotton. Let's see how it works out for 'em.

  • TK

    I feel shocked.

  • logan

    wow. if you weren't already married...

  • Rochelle

    I have not thought to myself, at any point in the past 9 years, "I wonder what those wacky Dodgeball guys are getting up to?"

  • Allijo99

    I've read that line 15x now and it still doesn't make sense. I can make it through "I don't think I'm a lot dumber than you thought" and then I look like Lindsay Lohan when someone is trying to explain to her that you can't take pills in rehab.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    This is basically the only way that another Stiller/Vaughn movie is even remotely a potentially good thing.
