'Jackass' star says most of the cast are interested in making a fourth movie
Jackass arguably created reality comedy television. The absurd stunts and pranks on the show spawned a dedicated fan base that supported the cast's controversial, lewd behaviour. These supporters were so committed that they even cheered on former Jackass member, Steve-O, when he completed the Bottle Cap Challenge with his own penis.
Now, fans are demanding a fourth movie, and it may become a reality as resident prankster Chris Raab (aka Raab Himself) has confirmed interest in the endeavour.
As the host of Bathroom Break Podcast (which is just as crude as the hit television series), Raab has interviewed several of his former co-workers for a good laugh every now and again. And apparently they're all interested in doing a fourth Jackass movie almost 10 years after the last one, Raab told Loudwire:
"I probably would be [a part of it] if asked … I feel like if Tremaine and Spike [Jonze] and Knoxville said, ‘Hey, let’s do it,’ then I imagine it would go forward. If they were to say it, I don’t think there would be pushback from others.”
But this is conflicting news, given that Johnny Knoxville was reportedly not on-board in January of this year, with Steve-O telling Loudwire:
"The short answer is that Knoxville is not interested in doing that. There’s been emails from some of the other guys, particularly one guy, who periodically has sent group emails. ‘Come on guys, let’s make another movie. Everybody wants it, I get asked everyday if we’re gonna make another movie.’"
"Knoxville responded to the last one with, ‘I get asked everyday if we’re gonna make another movie as well, but I would rather people ask for another movie than, "Why did you make that last movie?'’’ He wanted to sort of keep the legacy intact, and I can’t really argue with it."
But when Knoxville posted a picture with the Jackass crew and director in April, fans thought something was in the works, especially given that the caption read, "Look at who I ran into at dinner."
Who just happens to stumble into their closest friends and co-workers during a meal out? Sounds sketchy.
Fans thought so too, with people commenting that they were waiting for another instalment: "Jackass 4?" and "Plssss bless us with a Jackass 4."
We'll see who's side Johnny Knoxville is on, but I would love to some more naked butts and anacondas in ball pits...
