After a $50 million opening, is a Jackass 4 on the way?

10.19.2010

Despite the fact that no one in the JACKASS crew would come out and admit it, I just assumed that JACKASS 3D would be the last. Notice how much time it takes each of them to get psyched up and prepped for some of the gags in this film. They're not kids anymore (or in Steve-O's case, completely shitfaced) and there's plenty of pause before going through with some of the stunts. Yet when ANY film opens to $50 million, there's always going to be talk about the next film. So begins the talk of JACKASS 4.

JACKASS 3D set a record for the highest grossing October film OF ALL TIME and now it appears that a fourth film could be on the way. While no one from Paramount or Dickhouse Productions (the production company Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze and Jeff Tremaine set up for the franchise) would comment, it seems very likely that a fourth film is in the works. What probably won't happen is the long wait in between installments.

There were four years in between JACKASS NUMBER TWO and 3D and I'm sure Paramount would like to have one sooner than that. What is very likely is that instead of actually filming a new segment, Tremaine will take the extra footage that didn't make it into JACKASS 3D and release it as a fourth film. The studio did this with JACKASS 2.5 and released it on DVD but seeing the opportunity for a big cash windfall, there are reports that Paramount may turn JACKASS 3.5 and turn it into JACKASS 4.

Whatever the case, expect to see more JACKASS as the third film has already more than doubled its budget.

I'd watch Jackass 4.

But give it at least 5 years. It keeps it from getting stale of "Oh geez, another one? Didn't one come out last year?"

Dont understand

I dont understand the draw to these movies? I guess it is your typical 18-25 year old, never going to grow up, college kids that see this crap. These films are complete garbage.

I agree, they're not funny to me at all. But a lot of my friends like them, and these friends are generally pretty mature. I guess it's just an excuse for them to have mindless fun every once in a while. We've all got to do that sometimes. As for me, I prefer Ed Wood's movies, but my buddies like Jack Ass. Whatever floats your boat, right?

I love The Jackass Movies, but I dont want to have to pay $15 for a movie that is basically all clips that weren't good enough for the initial movie. Just release 3.5 on Blu Ray 3D, let us all pick it up and enjoy it and in a few years release Jackass 4. You don't want to get over zealous... i wont go see a new Jackass movie every week, but give it a few years in between and my anticipation will be at it's peak.

The news is that Jackass 3.5 was set for DVD and Paramount now looks to repackage it as JACKASS 4 and release in theaters.

I didn't think I would like Jackass and never actually watched it till the first movie came out on DVD. Now I own all the DVDs. I never go to movie theaters unless I know I'm going to love the movie. I've seen Number Two and 3D in theaters and will be there when number 4 comes out.

3D was meh

I love the Jackass crew, and I'll keep watching anything they do. 3D was too hyped I think and felt too short. I love the suprise in the beginning with B&B. Man do I want them back! Mike Judge has still got it.

Extra Tidbit:
The Sweatsuit Cocktail. I physically gagged in the theater.

you're never too old or too smart to enjoy a good dick joke. if seeing someone get hit in the nuts doesnt make you at least giggle then you're thinking about it too hard
