Ben Stiller Vince Vaughn Clay Tarver

Ben Stiller's Red Hour Films has hired American guitarist and writer Clay Tarver to pen the script for Dodgeball 2, the follow-up to the 2004 hit comedy. The production company run by Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld have gotten the go-ahead from Fox to make a sequel and quickly confirmed Tarver as the screenwriter.

Tarver was co-founder and lead guitarist with Boston hard rock band Bullet LaVolta, though is perhaps best known for his work with Chavez , the progressive hard rock band that he formed with Matt Sweeney, Scott Marshall and James Lo in the 90s. He later turned his hand to writing and co-writer the 2001 thriller Joy Ride with Star Wars Episode 7 director J.J. Abrams. Tarver is currently working on Quantum Hoops, another movie being produced by Red Hour, about a nerdy basketball team at Caltech. He wrote the movie Men Making Music, about the world of competitive barbershop quartets and worked with Mike Judge on Meat In The Freezer, a satire about hunting for HBO films.

Dodgeball, which grossed over $114 million domestically, centered on a group of misfits gym workers who enter a dodgeball competition in order to defeat an encroaching corporate gym run by Stiller. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn will star in the sequel, though it's unclear whether the likes of Christine Taylor, Justin Long and Jason Bateman will return. The plot will reportedly see the former rivals teaming up to thwart an even bigger threat in the fitness world.

Ever make someone else the brunt of a practical joke -- only to learn the joke is really on you? The characters in Joy Ride have, and after the lessons they learn, you can bet they'll never, ever tease anyone else again.

Joy Ride has clearly learned from similar, high-octane road thrillers like Breakdown. It calculates every move, but seldom do we see the surprises coming. The film explores the misadventures of a college student named Lewis (Paul Walker). Lewis is a nice guy, having just bought a used car to travel all the way across the country to help a friend in need (Leelee Sobieski). Along the way, he also stops to post bail for his troublemaking brother, Fuller (Steve Zahn), and give him a ride as well.
