Last month, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story Star Justin Long excited fans when he revealed that Vince Vaughn had an idea for a sequel to the 2004 comedy that was waiting for Ben Stiller’s stamp of approval after he wasn’t sure if he would follow up.
At the Wednesday night premiere of his new comedy. Christmas with the Campbellswhich he co-wrote and produced, Vaughn gave an update on the project himself, sharing that both he and Stiller are open but cautious about the risks of revisiting the hit film.
“They’ve always talked about this stuff forever and I had an idea that was fun and the studio liked it, so we’ll see where it goes,” Vaughn said. the hollywood reporter. “I think Ben is open to doing it, I think he’s in the same boat as me, which means if it’s a really fun, cool idea then it’s fun, but if it’s something to do again, why? “.
the star pointed A Christmas story Christmas – the a christmas story sequel he recently produced following an adult Ralphie from the 1983 film, as an example of how to make a sequel that isn’t just a retelling of the original. “You’d just want to make sure you get in dodgeball It feels like a good sequel and a story that could stand on its own,” Vaughn continued. “I think for all of us, if it feels good and it’s fun, it would be something to come back to, and if it’s not, it’s just another idea that’s being thrown around.”
Owen Wilson also recently made fun of a Wedding Crashers tracking could still happen. Vaughn said of revisiting some of his famous movies: “I’ve had so many movies that I’ve been lucky with and I never jumped into sequels for that reason. Because I always felt that if you only do it because you think it’s a way to get an audience, the problem is that you won’t feel good on the other side. So we’ve waited and I’m sure one of them will make sense, there’s some sequel that will work.”
For now, Vaughn’s focus is on Christmas with the Campbellsan R-rated version of a Hallmark Christmas movie starring Long, Brittany Snow, Alex Moffat, JoAnna Garcia Swisher and Julia Duffy, which he produced along with a christmas storyIt’s Peter Billingsley.
Inspired by watching Hallmark movies with his wife and questioning, “Is he really going to leave that six-figure job in New York? He’s only known this guy for a week,” Vaughn said, “he thought it would be a lot of fun to have a Hallmark writer write a traditional Hallmark movie and it won’t change the structure or the story, shoot it like a Hallmark movie, have the score be Hallmark, then go do an R-rated comedy pass for the dialogue and let the actors improvise R-rated and adult “.
“It’s really funny when you see it and it tells you it’s a Hallmark movie, but there are moments where you’re like, ‘Did they just say that?’” he added. “It’s kind of like what I always wanted when I saw it, like ‘What if they really said things like this?’”
Billingsley, who counts this as his fifth Christmas project and has been synonymous with the holiday since playing Ralphie as a child, also spoke about the allure of Christmas movies in addition to his love of the season.
“The holidays for all of us are a very kinetic, sometimes radioactive time that brings out the best and the worst in us,” he explained. “I think they’re really ripe for comedy because they’re full of the optimism and hope that we want, but at the same time we’re forced to be around people we don’t want to be around or expectations that don’t come true. I like to play in that arena, it’s a great ecosystem to tell very, very good stories.”
Christmas with the Campbells hits theaters and begins airing on AMC+ on Friday.
