I think its safe to assume that everyone though the most recent outing in 3D would be the last, escpecially after watching the credit montage of Jackass over the years as the film ended. Not so fast! Looks like making $50.4 million dollars on opening weekend and setting the record for highest October opening, opened the eyes of our lovable “stuntmen”, or should we say Hollywood studio. It is now being reported that during the filming of Jackass 3D there was enough footage for 2 movies. (Much like they did with Jackass 2.5).
“What is very likely is that instead of actually filming a new segment, [Jeff] 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 into Jackass 4. Whatever the case, expect to see more Jackass as the third film has already more than doubled its budget.” –Mike Sampson
