Knoxville gets Rock-ed

06.04.2003

JACKASS star and creator Johnny Knoxville has signed on to co-star alongside The Rock in WALKING TALL. The film is a remake of a film that will feature Mr. Rock as a local who returns to his small town to clean up shop the old-fashioned way - by kicking ass with a 2x4. Knoxville will star as a fellow townmember who Rock deputizes to join him on his task of kicking ass, taking names and offering up clever one-liners. While this might sound a bit like the classic ROAD HOUSE, there is no Patrick Swayze to be found here. Yet. Filming is scheduled to begin this June in Vancouver now that Rock has finished with HELLDORADO. After the success of JACKASS, Knoxville has had a number of projects on his plate, including a comedy about New York City hot dog vendors. Knoxville will receive a career best $5 million for his work in WALKING TALL.
