Johnny Knoxville teases new 'Jackass' movie after sharing picture of cast and director
For fans of grown men kicking each other in the groin and otherwise pranking one another, Johnny Knoxville could be about to make your day.
The 48-year-old shared a photo with the director of the Jackass films Jeff Tremaine, as well as his fellow cast members Ehren McGhehey, Dave England, Preston Lacey, Chris Pontius, Stephen "Steve-O" Glover and Jason "Wee Man" Acuna.
Here's just one of the crazy stunts that Johnny Knoxville took on during his time filming the Jackass series:
Together (along with Brandon "Bam" Margera and the late Ryan Dunn, who died in 2011), they created Jackass: a television show that initially aired for three seasons on MTV before being cancelled in 2002. From there, there were three Jackass films to enjoy; in 2002, 2006 and 2010.
So, in meeting his fellow cast members from that glorious time, Johnny Knoxville managed to send Jackass fans wild - especially those hoping for a fourth Jackass movie. "Look at who I ran into at dinner," he captioned the photo, and all the comments were saying the same thing.
I think the people would like a Jackass 4, Johnny.
And wouldn't you know it, the notion of yet another Jackass film isn't just a fever dream from fans. Johnny Knoxville's actually talked about the idea of causing himself and his friends extreme physical pain on camera while talking with Entertainment Weekly; back in June, Knoxville didn't exactly rule it out.
"It’s possible, for sure. It’s not like we’re saying no," he said at the time.
"If we did do a new one [Jackass film], we’d have to bring in some new younger guys— just to bring some fresh blood into it. But it’s possible. I still write ideas down, just in case I get that twitch again. We’re sitting on a ton of new ideas. There was so many that we didn’t get to shoot for Jackass 3.
[Many unused bits that they did film wound up on 2011’s straight-to-video Jackass 3.5.] We have more ideas than we could shoot for Jackass 4, I’ll tell you that."
Well, there you have it - this could be just a nice reunion photo between Johnny Knoxville and the rest of the Jackass crew. But on the other hand, it could - just maybe - be a teaser for yet another Jackass film. I can't wait, folks!
