With “Jackass 3-D” pulling in a record-breaking $50.4 million haul in its opening weekend, Paramount Pictures is considering plans to quickly assemble a fourth film from the leftovers of the third reports The L.A. Times.
Johnny Knoxville says that the guys shot so much material for “Jackass 3D” that there’s easily enough to make a sequel – “We shot two movies’ worth of footage. We have so many bits that we never even turned in to Paramount because we were so swamped with ideas – funny stuff. The bits were just coming out of us left and right” says Knoxville.
Originally the plan was to release the extras online and on disc in a few months, much like what was done with “Jackass 2.5”. However with this entry nearly doubling that of its predecessor, Paramount will make a decision over the next few days about whether to do a quickie follow-up theatrical release.
As for a fully-fledged sequel with all new material, film series director Jeff Tremaine said there currently are no plans to shoot more at present but it’s likely it will happen.
