If there’s anyone in this world who doesn’t know when to quit, it’s Johnny Knoxville and his merry gang of pranksters and daredevils. While it may have been a bit of a surprise back when Jackass Number Two was first announced (especially since Knoxville was busy trying to kickstart an actual acting career) something tells me you won’t quite be so surprised to hear that a Jackass Number Three is currently in the works. Steve-O unofficially announced this fact to the world on the Howard Stern Show yesterday.
The last movie grossed over $84 million worldwide, and that’s nothing to scoff at. It remains to be seen if Knoxville himself is involved in part 3, but I’m sure it wouldn’t be hard to talk them all into “completing the trilogy” so to speak. The only problem is, if they’re going to up the ante this time around, I think someone’s pretty much going to have to die. But hey, you gotta do what you gotta do. Jackass 2.5 is also supposed to be coming out on DVD later this year, culled together from tons of Jackass Number Two footage that was left on the cutting room floor. Stay tuned for more on both of these projects as they develop.
