Sacha Baron Cohen made a hell of a lot of money by making movies where he would dress in funny disguises and rile up real people to capture their reactions on tape, and now the boys of Jackass are looking to cash in on a similar idea. As we first reported earlier this month, Paramount Pictures has funded a feature length version of the Irving pranks that Johnny Knonny Knoxville pulled in the first three Jackass movies and the original series.
It's been 13 years since Jackass first debuted on MTV-- yes, that means you're old, but star Johnny Knoxville is probably older, and way too old to keep the schtick going. And yet… he's coming back, and actually embracing his age in a way. Paramount and MTV Films have announced, via The Hollywood Reporter, that they've already finished shooting a new Jackass movie, this one called Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa
Johnny Knoxville showed up on Jimmy Kimmel this week, bringing with him what he claimed was a deleted scene from Jackass 3D featuring Britney Spears. It is not. The video shows Britney riding in the bungee cord porta potty that Steve O straps himself into for the movie.

I'm not ashamed to admit it: I've been a fan of Jackass from the moment the first episode popped up on MTV back in 2000. I've been watching and laughing as the likes of Johnny Knoxville

It’s sure to be the stupidest 3D event of the year, and I couldn’t be more excited. The return of Jackass to theaters is like a visit from an old, beloved friend
New this time around is the 3D element which, by all accounts, the Jackass boys plan to milk for all it’s worth. This won’t be some subtle and artistic use of the format
The first official photo from Jackass 3D has been released, and as you’d expect, it features someone doing something stupid. More critically, it features someone doing something which could result
It was only a matter of time before 3D completely invaded the movie scene, and after that until the Jackass crew used 3D to invade your personal space.
Brace yourselves because bloody zombies and grotesque stunts are going to become far more real. Both the Zombieland sequel and the third Jackass movie will be in 3D
Back in the years before YouTube, it was a lot harder to watch people severely hurt themselves. Sure, you could always get a few buddies drunk and watch them make mistakes that led to hospital visits, or watch America's Funniest Videos, but the satisfaction wasn't nearly as instantaneous in the first and the second was far too tame.
Jackass’ Chris Pontius is moving up in the world, at least in the eyes of most straight-laced, elitist types. The thirty-four year old daredevil/ exhibitionist/ personal hero of mine has signed on for Sofia Coppola’s new dramedy Somewhere
