It has been announced that a fresh Jackass film is arriving in 2021, and will indicate the team’s first movie since the death of Ryan Dunn. According to The Wrap, Paramount Pictures will premiere the fourth Jackass movie on March 5, 2021.
At this time, no other details have been made available, however, it is possible that franchise celebrities such as Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve”Steve-O” Glover, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Ehren McGhehey, Preston Lacy and Jason”Wee Man” Acuña may return.
Jackass crashed into pop culture in the early 2000s, with a humorous and controversial series on MTV. In 2002, the very first movie, Jackass: The Movie, surfaced and was massively successful.
That movie was followed by two more: 2006’s Jackass Number Two, and 2010’s Jackass 3D.
Sadly, in 2011, Jackass co-star Ryan Dunn passed away in a horrible car accident, and the franchise has been mostly silent ever since, with the exclusion of 2013s Jackass Presents: Poor Grandpa, which was nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Makeup and Hairstyling category. But that movie featured only Knoxville in-character as the titular”bad grandpa.”
Interestingly, earlier this season, Jackass co-star Chris Raab — called Raab Himself — addressed the possibility of a fourth Jackass film and admitted, at the moment, he thought it might happen.
“I get the feeling that everybody’s pretty curious about it,” he said on the Bathroom Break Podcast.
“Ryan [Dunn] was a massive portion of this, so it is kind of weird. We’ve got that question about the CKY thing.
‘Is there likely to be a CKY 5?’ Nah, that will never happen,” he stated, speaking to the Camp Kill Yourself videos which predated Jackass.
CKY featured Raab, Margera, Dunn, along with other future Jackass stars like Brandon DiCamillo, Brandon Novak, and Rake Yohn.
He then directly addressed the idea of a new Jackass movie, saying, “Up to Jackass, I would think maybe it’d happen, but I do not know cause I’m not in that world enough to understand. I probably would be [part of it] if requested…
I feel as if Tremaine and Spike [Jonze] and Knoxville said, ‘Hey, let’; therefore do it,’ I imagine it would go forward. If they were to mention it, I don’t believe there could be pushback from other people.”
At this moment, it does not appear that Knoxville, Margera, or Steve-O have commented about the news. Jackass 3 is presently available to flow on Hulu, for readers of the ceremony.
