Vince Vaughn Discusses the Status of “Dodgeball 2,” the Sequel to the Classic Underdog Film!
Following comments from Justin Long on a potential sequel to Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, actor Vince Vaughn has given an update on what the future holds for the franchise.
When questioned about the sequel during the Wednesday night premiere of his new comedy Christmas with the Campbells, Vince Vaughn said that he and Ben Stiller are open to going back but are still concerned about the possibility of damaging the series.
They’ve always discussed these issues for a very long time, and I had a great notion that the studio liked, so we’ll see where it goes, Vaughn added (via The Hollywood Reporter). I believe Ben is willing to try it; in fact, I believe he has the same perspective as I do, which is that if it’s a really good and fun idea, that’s wonderful; but if it’s simply something to go do again, why?
The 2022A Christmas Story Christmas, which is a follow-up to 1983’s A Christmas Story, was subsequently mentioned by Vaughn as another sequel to a classic movie. A producer on the sequel, the actor said it was a good example of how to develop a follow-up to a production. Vaughn claimed that if they made another Dodgeball film, they would want to ensure that it was done well and could stand on its own.
Just make sure that Dodgeball feels like a satisfying conclusion to the previous novel and has a standalone plot before continuing. For all of us, I believe, if something feels good and is humorous, it will be something to return to; otherwise, it will just be another notion being discussed.
