The long gestating Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story sequel is finally moving forward at 20th Century Fox, with Clay Tarver coming on board to pen the screenplay.

Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn are expected to return, with Stiller's own Red Hour banner producing alongside Fox. The 2004 original followed a gym owner who rounds up a group of misfits for a Dodgeball tournament in order to save his property from a corporate gym take over.

Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn played foes in the first film, but it's likely that they will team up to take on an even bigger threat. No other story details have been released at this time.

Clay Tarver wrote the screenplay for the 2001 thriller Joy Ride, working alongside J.J. Abrams. He currently has a number of projects lined up with both Disney and Red Hour.
