The Jackass Franchise Is Coming Back In 2021
Jackass is back.
The Johnny Knoxville-created Jackass film franchise is coming back. Paramount Pictures has announced that the film series based on the MTV show will return in 2021 with a fourth movie. The untitled movie will premiere on March 5, 2021, Deadline reports.
The first Jackass debuted in 2002 with numerous sequels coming thereafter. In total, the franchise has grossed more than $335 million at the box office. The Jackass films were directed by Jeff Tremaine, who also directed the Bad Grandpa movie starring Knoxville.
It's expected that the new Jackass movie, which would be the fourth in the main franchise, will follow the format of the earlier ones with Knoxville and his pals performing all manner of dangerous and awkward stunts played for laughs and shock value.
There is no word on who else beyond Knoxville, who will be 50 when the movie premieres, will return for Jackass 4. The film franchise is based on 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.
Jackass 4's March 5, 2021 release date puts it up against Sony's Masters of the Universe movie.
