DreamWorks has purchased a comedy pitch from Dodgeball director Rawson Marshall Thurber for $1 million.

The story and title are being kept under wraps for now, but Ben Stiller is already attached and Thurber plans to write and direct the high-concept comedy himself.

Not much to go on
Errrm story? Granted I pretty much like anything with Ben Stiller (and yes that does include Along Came Polly Booreville - even though it wasn't his best), but I would like to hear a little more about it first. Really should be set in Micronesia though... More

[An Orgy Of Comedy!]
Haha, Ethan, didn't that occur in Zoolander! ;) Anyway, I'm a big fan of Ben Stiller and thought Dodgeball was hilarious (apart from the stereotypical German lass) so I hope this- whatever it is- turns out to be a good movie. -s- More

Can't Wait
This will be good, unless it becomes just a Stiller vehicle, and not some frat pack orgy of comedy. More
