Brace yourselves: There’s a new Jackass movie on the way

More like JackCLASS, amiright?

Just kidding, the movie is called Jackass and there’s going to be a fourth one of them coming out quite soon.

Well, not all that soon because apparently it’s coming out in 2021, but listen.

It’s happening and that’s the main thing.

Two decades after the reality comedy show burst onto our TV screens, the lads are bringing their rambunctious, daredevil fun back for an entirely new audience.

Paramount Pictures confirmed this week that the franchise would indeed be back in 2021, over 20 years since it first appeared on MTV.

In 2003, Jackass: The Movie came out. It was then followed by Jackass Number Two and eventually Jackass 3D

The show originally starred Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Ryan Dunn and Jason ‘Wee Man’ Acuña.

However, there has been no word as of yet as to whether Knoxville and Margera are set to return for the upcoming 2021 movie.

C’mon though, they’d have to. It wouldn’t be Jackass without them.

Earlier this year, Steve-O admitted that he had wanted to get the lads back together to mark the two decades since they first launched.

“We’re approaching the 20th anniversary of when Jackass first appeared on MTV,” he said.

“I do know that there’s an urge, an idea to commemorate that anniversary in some way.”

Yeah, fairly likely most of them’ll be getting involved, then.

And if so, this will be the first time that the guys have worked together on the franchise since the death of fellow cast member and stuntman Ryan Dunn in 2011.

The 34-year-old was remembered as a “go-to guy for outrageous stunts that even such stalwarts as Steve-O weren’t willing to try” and “the kind of guy who would do anything for a friend.”

Jackass 4 is due for release in 2021.
