It has been announced that a new Jackass movie is arriving from 2021, and will mark the team’s first movie since the death of Ryan Dunn. According to The Wrap, Paramount Pictures is planning to premiere the fourth Jackass movie on March 5, 2021. At this moment, no additional details are made available, but it’s 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 reunite.
Jackass crashed into pop culture in the early 2000s, with a hilarious and controversial series on MTV. In 2002, the first film, Jackass: The Movie, surfaced and was massively profitable.
That movie was followed by 2: 2006’s Jackass Number Two, and 2010’s Jackass 3D.
Regrettably, in 2011, Jackass co-star Ryan Dunn passed away in a tragic automobile accident, and the franchise was mostly quiet ever since, except for 2013s Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, that was nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Makeup and Hairstyling category. However, that movie featured only Knoxville in-character as the titular”bad grandpa.”
Interestingly, earlier this year, Jackass co-star Chris Raab — called Raab Himself — addressed the possibility of a fourth Jackass film and confessed, at the time, that he thought it might occur.
“I get the impression that everybody’s quite curious about it,” he said on the Bathroom Break Podcast. “Ryan [Dunn] was a huge portion of that, so it is kind of weird without him. We have got that question concerning the CKY item. ‘Is there likely to be a CKY 5?’ Nah, that’ll never happen,” he stated, referring to the Camp Kill Yourself videos that predated Jackass.
CKY showcased Raab, Margera, Dunn, and other potential Jackass celebrities such as Brandon DiCamillo, Brandon Novak, and Rake Yohn.
Then he directly addressed the idea of a brand new Jackass movie, saying, “Up to Jackass, I’d think maybe it’d happen, but I don’t know cause I am not at that world enough to understand. I probably would be [a part of it] if requested… I feel as if Tremaine and Spike [Jonze] and Knoxville said, ‘Hey, let’;s do it’ then I imagine it would go forward. When they were to mention it, I do not believe there would be pushback from other people.”
At this moment, it does not seem that Knoxville, Margera, or Steve-O have commented on the information. Jackass 3 is presently available to flow on Hulu, for subscribers of this service.
