Ever fancied playing a game of Dodgeball with Globo Gym and Average Joe’s Gym? Well, now you can thanks to the amazing guys over at Omaze who have reunited the cast of the hit comedy for a one-off event that could see you join them all for the toughest game in sport!
Ben Stiller (White Goodman), Vince Vaughn (Peter La Fleur), Christine Taylor (Kate Veatch), Justin Long (Justin), Missi Pyle (Fran) and more have been brought back together for the event, for which a hilarious reunion video has been produced which you can view below.
Released 13 years ago this month, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story was written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence) and grossed over $167million worldwide, and was one of the top 20 highest-grossing movies of 2004 in the US. Its legacy has continued through the years and a sequel has been long mooted but so far efforts have been unsuccessful – but perhaps this amazing event will tip the scales in favour of the sequel.
Here’s the official Omaze statement:
To celebrate the 13th anniversary of Dodgeball, Ben Stiller has reunited the original cast to give one lucky fan the opportunity of a lifetime! So strap on your kneepads and grab your balls because Team Globo Gym and Average Joe’s are having one final showdown for charity and they want you to join them.
Watch the hilarious announcement video starring Ben, Vince Vaughn, Christine Taylor, Justin Long and more!
Every donation to compete with these Dodgeball champions will support the Stiller Foundation, which focuses on improving educational opportunities in Haiti and providing advocacy to conflict-displaced people in close coordination with the UN Agency for Refugees.
Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story is out now on DVD and Blu-ray.
