Plot details are unknown at this point, but if history is any indication, you can expect Jackass 4 to focus on Knoxville and his friends performing all manner of dangerous and awkward stunts played for laughs and shock value. The fourth Jackass movie was announced in December 2019.

So far, only Knoxville--who will be 50 when the movie comes out--is confirmed to return for Jackass 4. The earlier entries also featured Steve-O, Chris Pontius, and Bam Margera. Ryan Dunn, who appeared in the three previous Jackass films, died in a car accident in 2011.

The Jackass film franchise is a spin-off of the the MTV series, which was co-created by Knoxville and Spike Jonze, who would go on to earn an Oscar nomination for Being John Malkovich and then win an Oscar for the Joaquin Phoenix movie Her.
