"(I) sold a pitch for a television series sequel to the original movie that will bring all the original cast members back," writer and director David Mickey Hayes said during an appearance on "The Rain Delay" podcastSlash Film reported.

Hayes would not say which one, but the idea has already been picked up by an unnamed streaming service.

Evans said the series would take place in 1984, when the players from the ragtag team would be 33 years old and have kids of their own.

That means Mike Vitar as Benjamin “Benny” Franklin Rodriguez; Patrick Renna as Hamilton “Ham” Porter; Chauncey Leopardi as Michael “Squints” Palledorous; Victor DiMattia as Timmy Timmons; Marty York as Alan “Yeah-Yeah” McClennan; Shane Obedzinski as Tommy “Repeat” Timmons; Grant Gelt as Bertram Grover Weeks; and Brandon Quintin Adams as Kenny DeNunez, would reprise their roles.

Renna expressed surprise.

“I feel like an NBA player who just found out he was traded... on Twitter,” he tweeted. “News to me!”

The 1993-movie "The Sandlot" inspired two sequels, "The Sandlot 2" and "The Sandlot: Heading Home." A prequel movie is also planned

There is no timetable yet, but hopefully fans of the franchise will not have to wait “for-ev-er.”
