LOS ANGELES, March 21 (UPI) -- Comedy Central's host of "The Showbiz Show with David Spade" has revealed there may be sequel down the pike to his his 2001 "Joe Dirt."

Spade's next film, "The Benchwarmers," with Jon Heder and Rob Schneider opens in U.S. cinemas April 7.

While discussing "The Benchwarmers" with reporters, Spade let it slip that he's working on a follow-up to "Joe Dirt" for Adam Sandler's Happy Madison production company, Zap2it.com reported.

"I'm just doing the show for a while, might do another 'Joe Dirt' movie in the summer," Spade said. "That's about it. The show is really starting and that's what I have to do, like my day-to-day job."

Spade said the "Joe Dirt: Electric Dirtaloo" script has been a work in progress and "Sandler thinks it's funny."

The universally panned original, which brought in box office receipts of $27 million, has found success in the home video market. Spade said "Joe Dirt" has been one of the Sony's biggest sellers at Wal-Mart stores.
